The Sheboygan Falls Plan Commission recommended approval of a conditional-use permit request submitted by Kathryn Hillstrom and Vicky LeMahieu for the operation of a new hair salon and spa at 202 Pine St. in downtown Sheboygan Falls, during a monthly meeting held Tuesday, Aug. 28, at the Sheboygan Falls Municipal Building.

Hillstrom spoke briefly about plans for the new salon and spa at the Richardson building.

“It will be an Aveda Concepts salon with a strong focus on nature-based wellness and well being,” Hillstrom said. “We plan to operate the business as a salon, spa, boutique and wellness facility.”

She went on to discuss the building at 202 Pine St., which had previously served as the home of Richardson Furniture Emporium and it is still owned by Richardson Associates LLC, which will rent the space to Hillstrom and LeMahieu.

“It is a very unique and historic building and it will serve as a great space for the new salon and spa,” Hillstrom said. “In addition to operating our salon and spa in the building, our vision is to have other businesses with similar wellness goals come in and share the ample building space that we have available at this site.”

Mayor Randy Meyer established the hours of non-operation for the salon and spa as 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. daily and Hillstrom noted that the salon will utilize city garbage pick up.

The Plan Commission unanimously recommended approval of the conditional-use permit request to the Sheboygan Falls Common Council, which was scheduled to consider it at its next meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 5.

In other business, the Plan Commission recommended approval of a conditional-use application submitted by Larry Kettle for the operation of Kettle Financial at 1102 Fond du Lac Ave. in Sheboygan Falls.

Kettle intends to use the rental space owned by Eric Zabel of Glasstone LLC to operate a financial advising practice.

Noting that the office space is part of a strip mall, Commissioner Al Mayer recommended that garbage storage be addressed for the business.

Meyer recommended that all garbage be placed in a dumpster or stored off site.

Meyer also established the hours between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. as hours of non-operation.

The Plan Commission unanimously recommended approval to the Sheboygan Falls Common Council, which was scheduled to vote on the item at its Sept. 5 meeting.

The Plan Commission also recommended approval of a direct seller’s permit for Craig Rusch of Woodland Tree Farm to sell seasonal agricultural products, including pumpkins, gourds, straw bales and corn stalks during the fall holiday season in September and October, as well as Christmas trees, wreaths, boughs/swags and garland during November and December at Odyssey Fun Center located at 100 Hamann Drive in Sheboygan Falls.

The sales area was designated as the southeast portion of the parking lot as Rusch has done in previous years.

Upon receiving the approval of the Plan Commission, the direct seller’s permit item was placed on the agenda for the Sept. 5 Sheboygan Falls Common Council meeting.

The next Sheboygan Falls Plan Commission meeting will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 26 at 6 p.m. in the Sheboygan Falls City Hall Council Chambers.
