Owned by Sandra Nomer and Mariam Noujaim, the proposed bed and breakfast inn will be called the Infinite Life Retreat and Spa.
The facility is slated to include six guest rooms and offer 24 events, consisting of day retreats, classes and seminars, with up to 20 participants including guests of the bed and breakfast inn.
The planning commission received numerous letters from neighbors objecting to the project. Residents also showed up at the Planning Commission meeting to speak against it. Some cited concerns about additional traffic on a road that is only partially paved as well as potential congestion in the event of a fire. Another resident complained about potential groundwater contamination from a septic system designed for a single-family residence rather than a bed and breakfast.
However, after taking testimony and making some minor modifications to the project, the commission voted to approve the new bed and breakfast.
