Nyhus plans auto detail shop on Main Street

A new detailing shop is being planned by Nyhus Family Auto Sales.

The shop is planned at the former rapid oil change facility on West Main Street--formerly owned by Phelps Ford.

A hearing will be required on the proposal, because it will require a conditional use permit. The previous oil change business had been "grandfathered" in, as the area is now zoned "downtown commercial," which is a more restricted zoning.

The former rapid oil business has been closed for more than one year.

The council set a hearing for the December 8 regular city council meeting.

Nyhus recently expanded its lot on County Rd. 78--across from Perham High School.
