Sheridan Township operates under the guidelines of the Mason County Master Plan. 

Generally, the purpose of this Master Plan is to provide policy that guides decision making for future land and infrastructure development within Mason County.  Specifically, key planning issues are identified; community character is described; goals and policies are outlined; existing and future land uses are described and mapped; public facility standards are established; transportation improvements are identified, and specific implementation measures are recommended.  The Mason County Master Plan Update was adopted by the Mason County Board of Commissioners on December 08, 2020.
