Hyrum planning commission OKs site plan for fishing fly business

HYRUM — The city Planning Commission approved a site plan for a wholesale distribution business at 90 N. 800 East at Thursday night’s meeting.

The plan was proposed by Kohn Smith, who owns a business at the same address that manufactures flies for fly fishing. The business sells wholesale directly to stores that carry flies.

“We don’t sell to individuals or do retail,” said Smith, “so we don’t need anything fancy. We use a small front office and then we do a lot of business on the Internet. Really, all we need is four walls and a roof. Our current building lease is up at the end of April, so we really need to get this approved. We’ll basically have to move overnight or shut down our business,” said Smith.

The commission discussed several amendments to Smith’s site plan before eventually approving it.

Commissioner Jeff Nielsen was concerned with whether or not Smith had a Dumpster location picked out. Smith reported to the commission that he planned on getting a bin for trash and a bin for recycling in the back of the store, and installing a chain link fence around the bins.

“I think that the chain link fence around the Dumpsters is a great idea,” said Commissioner Steve Sproul. “Otherwise, the whole community will end up using the Dumpsters.”

Commissioner Brian Carver questioned Smith about whether there were any safety and fire guidelines that needed to be met for the building.
