The Sheridan City Council at a study session Monday night discussed a resolution that would approve the final plat of the Hidden Bridge Ranch Subdivision. Sheridan Media’s Ron Richter has the details.
The Council discussed the final plat of the Hidden Bridge Ranch Subdivision, which subdivides 18.5 acres into 78 lots for property located in the 700 block of Mydland Road, South of West 5th Street in Sheridan. City Community Development Director Wade Sanner says that the average residential lot size is 6,792 square feet, and that there are 74 residential lots and four outlots in the proposed subdivision. Sanner said the subdivision does not meet the 10 percent open space requirement, as there is only 7 percent designated for greenspace. Sanner said that there is a provision in city code that will allow the developer a “workaround” with what is known as a fee in lieu.
Sanner said that the exact monetary fee amount has yet to be determined by the City Council. The Council is expected to consider the subdivision following the third and final reading of an ordinance that rezones the 18.5 acres from a mix of R-1 residential and B-1 business to R-2 residential. Both the rezone request and subdivision will be considered by the Council at their regularly scheduled meeting Monday night.
