Sheridan Photo Voice Activity
Show us what you see in downtown!
Photo Voice is all about showing what YOU experience in downtown Sheridan. Each person provides TWO photos and a BRIEF explanation to answer the following questions:
- What is one thing you feel really works downtown?
- What is one thing you don’t feel works in downtown or is broken?
Please make sure to indicate whether you LIKE the place you are marking or DON’T LIKE IT.
Your input is critical for helping to prioritize desired improvements along Main Street.
Photos will be shared at the Main Street Momentum Public Input Party from 5pm-7pm at the Sheridan County Chamber of Commerce, 171 Main Street #D.

Dislike: The bulk of the traffic through downtown is on Main Street where we are wanting to create additional shopping, dining, place-making, etc. (pedestrian traffic) This seems counter intuitive until we find alternative routes for traffic. The current parallel parking is perceived to be impossible for some people & visually it’s risky when the spacing between vehicles are inconsistent. As the downtown continues to become more desirable it’ll inevitably attract more people & traffic. Increasing the capacity should be a priority before the limited traffic & parking becomes an overwhelming distraction.
Like: The downtown is very attractive: trees, lighting, statues, building renovations, store fronts, new & evolving entrepreneurial endeavors, events, flowers, etc. The historic buildings are iconic center pieces for our whole community and visually make our downtown very attractive.
What doesn't work? The traffic issues with simple solutions that the City won't address. Note the 4 way stop at Brundage and Broadway.
What works? The Sheridan Public Arts Program. (I am biased).
