Manufactured homes, collectibles and fingernails
By Emily Jensen
Each received a conditional-use permit from the Tremonton City Planning and Zoning Commission on Tuesday.
Lish, who has converted Tremonton's old hospital to an office building, wants to expand. He presented the idea of placing two manufactured homes on his east parking lot, at 18 N. 200 East. One building would be an office/outlet for the manufactured homes company Freedom Homes. The other building would be a model home.
"It's a mess back there," Lish said. And the Planning Commission agreed. They voted that he could have a conditional-use permit as long as he didn't let people live in the two homes.
"You're off and running," said Commission Chairman Gerald Smith in giving Lish the go-ahead.
Leslie Fredrickson wanted to renew a conditional-use for a home occupation permit for her business of selling and delivering Keepsake Angels for All Occasions. Chairman Smith made sure she knew the rules of not having any signs or displays and that she knew the product must not be visible from the exterior of her home. Fredrickson agreed, admitting that if her business grew, then she would look for office space.
The Planning Commission passes another conditional-use for a home occupation for Heather Hugie's in-home nail business. Commission member Stanley Stokes, who admits that he is losing his hearing, didn't quite catch Hugie's business plans.
"Now this is through the mail?" Stokes asked.
"No, Stan," said Chairman Smith, "it's for fingernails."
"Oh, email," comprehended Stokes.
"No," said Chairman Smith exasperated, and waggling his fingers as if he had his nails just painted, "for doing fingernails."
The Planning Commission enjoyed a good laugh.
