Dec. 12, 2018 – Hartford, WI – A crafting retreat house may soon be coming to 209 West Lincoln Avenue in Hartford.
According to the Planning Commission Agenda, the crafting retreat house “…would be a place that groups of up to 12 could rent for the weekend or overnight in order to work on craft projects in a group setting. In addition, the retreat house would host classes and open sewing nights during the week.”
Similar crafting retreat houses are located in Beaver Dam, Waukesha, Waldo, Janesville, Lake Geneva, Cambridge, and Black River Falls. These examples provided by the applicant, Jean Harley, are also located in residential zones.
This week the Planning Commission approved the request for rezoning the property. The item was reviewed by the City Council during Tuesday’s meeting.
The property is owned by Redeemer Lutheran Church.
