Sheridan Lands/Community Visions
The Sheridan Lands/Community Visions Sessions were a series of meetings with community leaders to envision new and productive uses for the 28 acres of land currently occupied by the Sheridan Expressway. The sessions took place throughout the winter and spring of 2006 and resulted in five comprehensive Draft Documents describing an inspiring future for the Sheridan Lands.
