Permit will allow agri-tourism enterprise on Shannon Run

The owners of a farm at 661 Shannon Run Road will present their plans to operate an agri-tourism enterprise during the Board of Adjustment's meeting on Monday, Jan. 9, at 6:30 p.m. in the second-floor courtroom of the Woodford County Courthouse. Michael and Debbie Duckworth want to host events - such as weddings, family reunions, youth groups and banquets - in a barn on their 32-acre farm. The 60-foot-by-40-foot barn can accommodate 150 people, with events not to exceed 250 guests, according to an application for the conditional-use permit. Seasonal events would conclude at 11 p.m. on Saturdays and 10 p.m. on Fridays. Long-term plans for the property include improvements to a pond and two acres of evergreen trees for a proposed self-cut Christmas tree agri-tourism business. Also on the BOA agenda, a request for a dimensional variance that will allow Agility Gymnastics and Fitness Academy (Michelle Grewe) to place a free-standing sign four feet from the Frankfort Street right-of-way. The new building being constructed for Agility Gymnastics at 160 Frankfort Street measures 11,960 square-feet. A site plan shows 70 parking spaces.
