Forest Service buildings on the move

P&Z approves plan to relocate structures

Express Staff Writer

These two Forest Service buildings, located on the corner of River and Pine streets in Hailey, are scheduled to be moved to 113 Bullion St., pending further approval.

The Hailey Planing and Zoning Commission approved a plan Monday, May 7, by Michael Kraynick, a Hailey entrepreneur, to move two U.S. Forest Service buildings, currently located at the corner of Pine and River streets, to 113 Bullion St.

The plan was presented by Kraynick's wife, Nancy Linscott, who is a P&Z commissioner. She said that they had spoken with the nonprofit Wood River Land Trust about the possibility of also moving the historic building residing on their lot on Bullion Street. However, the house's design and age of materials made this option impossible.

The two Forest Service buildings will be moved onto the lot June 15 if Kraynick and Linscott receive the necessary permits.

The buildings will be joined together once they're in place and will be surrounded by their current landscaping of shrubs, plants and trees, which are also being moved.

The P&Z applauded Kraynick and Linscott's effort to maintain a historic feel in Old Town Hailey.

"They should be commended for trying to preserve the integrity of the neighborhood," Commissioner Owen Scanlon said.
