Land beneath of proposed bakery came one step closer to becoming part of Beulah last week when the city’s planning and zoning board voted to recommend its inclusion in city limits. During a regularly-scheduled public hearing the board voted unanimously to annex land belonging to Mark and Bonnie Nies into city limits, as well as rezoning it to a C2 (commercial) designation. The board’s recommendation to annex and rezone will next come up at a city council meeting. Next up on the board’s agenda was a retention pond design for the Latter Day Saints Church in Country Club Estates. City Coordinator Russ Duppong said the pond was needed to regulate any excess runoff that would occur due to additions to the church.
A consumer event focused on repurposed items will be coming to the area for the first time very soon. A “Trashy Affaire” will be held Saturday, May 10 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Beulah Civic Center, and it’s a one-of-a-kind event where the vendors are showing off their skills at turning items that may have once been called junk into art. Marie Johnson and Lynne Wolf are two of the people involved in the practice of finding new uses for old items and are hoping the event will be a resounding success.
