Downtown Development Authority Forum

About This Site

This website has been created as an open forum for discussion about the potential for a Downtown Development Authority in Sheridan.  

The Downtown Sheridan Association (DSA) has created a business plan for downtown, including assessing the feasibility of a DDA in Sheridan.  A Downtown Development Authority (DDA) will allow the DSA to focus business and economic development efforts in downtown, creating an environment for leveraging public and private investment.

The information on this site is intended to inform property owners, businesses and residents as to what a DDA would be like in Sheridan, and to build support for its establishment.
