Sheldon has undergone a great deal of growth in 2012. We talked with Sheldon Chamber & Development Corporation Executive Director Mark Gaul about the changes in town over the past year. Gaul says that the biggest change is in the Crossroads Industrial Park.
Gaul went on to talk about some of the other things that have taken place in 2012.
Gaul went on to list the expansion of Sheldon Crossing, including the move of Risefest to Sheldon, along with the new Casey’s Store at the intersection of Highway 18 and Business 60, as well as Shopko taking over the Pamida store in Sheldon, as major projects for 2012.
Gaul says the SCDC is also helping to address the need for housing in Sheldon.
Gaul says that, in addition to the Sheldon Crossing area, new housing development will take place in other areas of Sheldon, as well, including the Fieldcrest area of east Sheldon.
We asked Gaul what was on the horizon with the dawn of 2013.
Gaul says that the addition of businesses like Southwest Wholesale RV and Chinese Chef to the Runger Addition, as well as the proposed downtown infrastructure project, will help keep Sheldon moving in the right direction for 2013.
