Little House Artifacts in Newbo will need to move some of it's merchandise that is currently being displayed outside in order to comply with city zoning codes. 

Zoning Administrator Vern Zakostelecky says, “Staff recognizes the nature of this re-sale business and has not ordered the property owner to remove all artifacts, but to follow the Municipal Code guidelines for the orderly display of outdoor merchandise. Enforcement actions are not currently underway because the property owner has applied for a Conditional Use permit. This permit process allows for the outdoor display of items for a business in this area, as long as it is organized on a hard surface, in an area approximately 140 square feet. Staff from the Zoning Division and Building Services Department continue to work with the property owner on a site plan and display area.”

Little House Artifacts tells us they believe moving their items will impact their sales.
