P&Z approves Sturtevants addition

Retailer plans improvements to Main Street building

Express Staff Writer

      The Ketchum Planning and Zoning Commission on Monday unanimously approved an application to build a 527-square-foot addition to the ground floor of the smaller of two buildings occupied by Sturtevants Mountain Outfitters.
     The application by Glenne LLC calls for improvements to the south side of the building at 380 North Main St., which has been used as the retailer’s bike and ski shop.
     No public comments were made before the vote. Commissioner Michael Doty recused himself from voting on the application because he is the architect of the project.
     In May 2013, both of the Sturtevants buildings, at 380 and 360 North Main street, respectively received administrative design approval for exterior renovations to the buildings.
     With the new construction, the smaller building’s size would increase from 2,239 to 2,776 square feet. As part of the application, store owner Olin Glenne proposed 696 square feet of snow storage in and adjacent to the parking lot between the two buildings, meeting the city’s snow storage requirements.
    Sketches of the approved addition can be viewed on the Ketchum city website under the Planning and Zoning meeting agenda for Sept. 23.
