Please click here to download the complete Subdivision Review Process guidelines for developers.
The Sheridan County Conservation District (SCCD) is responsible for addressing natural resource issues (W.S. 11-16) and mandated to provide subdivision reviews and recommendations (W.S. 18-5-306 (b). Statute 11-16-102 (x) defines natural resources as “land, soil, water, vegetation, trees, wild rivers, wilderness, natural beauty, scenery, and open space.” Our role is to help developers and other County authorities use good conservation practices in subdivision planning through recommendations on resource issues.
Effective January 2018, the fee for subdivision reviews is $10.00/acre with a $200/minimum. Please allow adequate time for completion. By statute, SCCD is allowed 60 days for subdivision reviews; SCCD will attempt to complete the review within 30 days to ease the process for developers.
If you have any questions, please email Jackie Turner at or call the District office at (307) 672-5820 ext. 3. Soils information requests and/or preliminary plats may also be emailed to email@example.com.
