  1. Home Occupancy Permit – 214 W. 12th Street – Vice-Mayor Brumbaugh opened public hearing at 5:01 p.m. Jeanell Tucker stated, I want to put in a medical spa at this location.  Dr. Daise has agreed to be medical director with the thought to eventually bring program into hospital.  Brett Schields stated, the other business we are requesting at this address is a golf simulator; most will use it during winter when cannot get in Country Club.  We feel it will help high school men and women’s golf team with practice.  It is a learning device for golf.  Jeanell stated, the nice thing about our location is we are not impeding traffic from the street or alley.  Commissioner Fairbanks stated, these are both good ideas and businesses Goodland does not have.  It will not interfere with golf course.  Andrew stated, the request is consistent with code and we conducted site inspection of property and recommend approval.  Area residents were notified with no comment.  Since the City has no Planning Commission, the City Commission holds hearing.  The home occupancy permit stays with property owner at current residence.  If any dynamic changes, then required to complete process again.  Vice-Mayor Brumbaugh asked, are you considering allowing the simulator to be moved to golf course?  Jeanell stated, we want to see the interest for the simulator.  We are hoping it will help people just beginning to golf if they do not feel comfortable going to golf course.  Brett stated, it can be packed up and taken to range but we would have to have an outdoor license; right now we only have an indoor license.  It will require extra space with a tall ceiling.  Vice-Mayor Brumbaugh stated, we appreciate you investing in Goodland and bringing the service here.  Commissioner Fairbanks asked, when will business be in operation?  Jeanell stated, as soon as we get approval and products.  Vice-Mayor Brumbaugh closed public hearing at 5:12 p.m.
