College board approves Sheridan College expansion

Posted

SHERIDAN (WNE) — New agreements will allow the Sheridan College campus to significantly expand and bring potential for growth to the college and community.

On Wednesday, the Northern Wyoming Community College District Board of Trustees approved three agreements related to land and property that will increase the college campus by almost one-third and lead to opportunities in construction technology and related fields.

The NWCCD board accepted 5 acres of mostly vacant land from the Sheridan Economic and Educational Development Authority (SEEDA) Joint Powers Board. The property sits just east of the Sheridan College campus across Interstate 90.

The board also approved a separate agreement that grants 26 acres of additional land to the NWCCD for economic development and educational purposes.

Those 26 acres sit next to the 5 acres and include a 25,000-square-foot building that will house the Sheridan College construction technology program.

Upon approving the land grants, the board granted the college’s current construction technology building to The Hub on Smith to use as part of its homecare programs.

The college’s newly acquired property must be used for economic and educational development of the Sheridan community.
