Dayton OKs plans for new farmers market

DAYTON — If all goes as planned, Dayton residents Brad and Wanda Johnston will establish a new farmers market on Main Street just north of the Mountain Inn Bar.

The Johnstons received a vote of approval from the Dayton Planning Committee on Wednesday to divide their property into two parcels to accommodate the market.

The lot adjacent to Main Street that will house the farmers market will be 45,975 square feet. It will be developed with water, sewer and a structure for the market. The other lot, which already contains a house, will be located behind the market. It will be 12,941 square feet.

The front part of the Johnstons’ property is already zoned B-1 business, while the back of the property is zoned residential.

“There was no concerns, no complaints, and the Johnstons already got the curb cut letter from WYDOT,” Planning Committee member Norm Anderson said. “It will add another business to Main Street.”

The Johnstons did not have a timeline for the project to present at the meeting. However, Anderson said the curb cut permit from the Wyoming Department of Transportation does have a time limit, so he expects work will begin in a timely fashion.

The request to divide the property will go before Dayton Town Council on Aug. 20 as a final plat since no major reconstruction work needs to be done, Anderson said.
