New Developments & Growth


Revitalization of Downtown Sterling is a key economic development initiative of the City of Sterling, Logan County Chamber of Commerce, Sterling Urban Renewal Authority, and Logan County Economic Development Corporation.  Historic preservation and building improvement efforts have a common goal to bring residents back downtown and attract tourists.   The downtown renaissance has resulted in new community vibrancy with over 25 new businesses including boutiques, restaurants, a microbrewery, and arts cooperative.   A limited winery with tasting room will open  August 2018.  A Co-working facility is in the final planning phases with expected opening in Fall 2018 on the downtown Courthouse Square.
