Ordinance Limiting Playing in Downtown District Introduced to Council – Sheridan Media


Metropolis Lawyer Brendon Kerns offered the main points of Ordinance 2250 to the Sheridan Metropolis Council and Mayor Wealthy Bridger on the latest Council research session. The Ordinance pertains to limiting playing within the downtown district. In line with Kerns, the ordinance is a proposed zoning change that might forestall playing for B-1 zoned properties within the Downtown District and restrict playing to 6 units in areas zoned B-2 within the Downtown District. Moreover, B-1 and B-2 zoned properties exterior of the downtown district can be unaffected and not one of the properties throughout the downtown district can be in violation of the ordinance and the State Gaming Fee has reported that they don’t have any pending purposes for Sheridan.

Kerns defined one of many complexities that performed a job in crafting the proposed ordinance centered round a letter Governor Mark Gordon despatched to the Wyoming Senate in early March.

Mayor Bridger stated the proposed Ordinance shouldn’t be set in stone.

A memo offered to the Council from Kerns states that Ordinance is simply meant to be a two-year moratorium. On December 31, 2024, the Ordinance would routinely expire until Council authorized a brand new ordinance. The aim of the moratorium is to offer the Wyoming Legislature the chance to handle this matter and to offer Metropolis employees the flexibility to totally consider this problem. This freeze is meant to be non permanent to permit everybody the chance to totally discover this problem and keep away from an unlucky state of affairs of materially altering the Downtown District due to an absence of foresight.
