Commission Denies Shop Permit

A conditional use permit to operate a cabinet shop out of a building in a new residential subdivision was denied today by the Sheridan County Commission.

The request came from Susan and Bradley Wieser of Sheridan.

According to the request, the couple wanted to expand their existing home business into a 30-foot by 50-foot building that's adjacent to their home in the Spirit Ridge Subdivision. The Wiesers were not at the meeting to present their request. However, according to information provided in the agenda packet, the land runs along the south side of Whisper Lane and is zoned urban residential.

Both the subdivision's Home Owners Association President Chad Axsmith and the subdivision owner's attorney spoke against the proposal. The association president spoke first.

Attorney Mitchell Martin representing Realty Management Group said there was what he called an “inherent conflict” between the covenant rules and the zoning regulation, so an approval of the request by the commission would lead to future litigation.

In the end, when the commissioners agreed, they voted unanimously to deny the request, with the exception of Bob Rolston, who was not there for the meeting.
