After months of discussion and community surveys, the Kick Start Sheridan team unveiled
its strategic action plan to the public that outlines the blueprint for growth and
development in Sheridan and Grant County over the next five years.
“I congratulate you on this Kick Start Sheridan initiative, and hope you will build on this foundation, so a year from now you will
be able to come back and see all the things you have accomplished,” said Gov. Asa
Hutchinson at the May 7 public unveiling of the Kick Start Sheridan Action Plan.
A collaboration between University of Central Arkansas' Center for Community and Economic
Development and the University of Arkansas Cooperative Extension Service's Breakthrough Solutions Program, Kick Start Sheridan was formed after a team of Community Development Institute
graduates interacted with Sheridan, Grant County, and the Sheridan School District
representatives last summer.
With the theme “This is Our Time,” Kickstart Sheridan’s action plan addresses key
issues and opportunities in downtown development, recreation and things to do, education
and economic development, and infrastructure. These issues emerged from a community
survey that surfaced high priorities within the community.
Kick Start Sheridan Co-Chairs Brad McGinley and Carrie Smith, and Communications Chairperson
Lauren Goins, along with the UCA team led by Amy Whitehead, have been doing a terrific
job of engaging the community and developing goals and strategies.
We are excited about the excellent work taking place in Sheridan /Grant County/Yellow
Jacket Nation, and look forward to hearing progress reports moving forward.
