Joe and Grace Kassander have submitted a concept plan for the property located just south of Douglas Lane and on the north side of Pioneer Road. They are interested in purchasing and developing the 63.96 acres into a combination farm/event facility. As the attached letter in the memo below explains, their family has been in the Horticulture business for over 40 years. They would like to own a farm where they could share their love of horticulture and agriculture with the community and friends. One part of their business would focus on growing and selling a variety of agricultural items such as pumpkins, apples, com, Christmas trees, strawberries, etc. Along with those sales, they envision providing hay rides, walking paths, corn mazes, jungle gyms, pumpkin picking, Christmas tree sales, etc.

In an effort to produce additional income and stability for the farm operations, they would like to host school field trips, corporate events, weddings, birthday parties, etc. These would be hosted in a new event facility. The Kassanders are proposing a structure that has the amenities of a newer building but the rustic charm of a barn built in the 1800's. They have consulted with DC Builders and have attached a few pictures in the memo of the model building they are interested in constructing.

Plan Commission Meeting: September 21, 2016
The Plan Commission held a concept plan discussion, unanimously recommending the applicant move forward with a formal application.
