Community and County Profiles

The city of Sheridan thrives in part because of the careful guidance and investment of its citizens and leaders. This ethos is visible in the preservation of its historic downtown district, home to many unique businesses and services. Recent investments in street improvements focused on green space and facilities for biking and walking highlight the care and investment the community makes in itself. Another example: the 43.5-acre Hi Tech Business Park, which in the past five years has attracted leading-edge tech industries to the region.

Sheridan routinely ranks on best cities lists, thanks in part to its vibrant downtown, home to music festivals, farmers markets, and street festivals. With top-ranked schools (including Sheridan College), it’s a destination not only for tourists, but for relocating families and businesses.
