In 2016, the City of Sheridan launched "Driving Change", the voter-approved Sheridan bond improvements program to enhance the community through a series of reconstruction projects addressing street, sidewalk, drainage and stormwater issues. The November 3, 2015 bond initiative passed by more than half of voters. "Driving Change" was critical for the community because 75 percent of Sheridans streets were in fair or poor condition, with crumbling sidewalks, drainage issues causing water damage, and areas with high accident rates and traffic congestion. Each year these issues werent addressed, the cost for repairs would have increased by more than $1 million. Construction cost for all the projects combined was estimated at $31 million and took four years to complete with an estimated monthly tax impact of $9.92 per $100,000 of a homes actual market value.
The project was completed in 2019. A final report was presented to city council on the "Driving Change" project. Here is a summary of the report.
The project cost came in at less than 1% over budget and was $31 Million. It included more than 10 major improvement projects covering the entire city. Miles of street paved was 17.8; asphault tonnage placed 65,818.5; miles of curb, gutter, and sidewalk 18.1; and drainage pipe put in place 3,938 feet.
