FDL City Council Approves Special Use Permit For Boyle House

The Fond du Lac City Council Wednesday evening approved a
special use permit that will allow a West Allis woman to convert the former
Henry Boyle Home into a bed and breakfast. The property at 271 N. Park Avenue
until 2000 was used as a house for aging sister of the Congregation of the
Sisters of St. Agnes and as a convent. Community Development Director Dyann
Benson says Kelly Hansburg shared her plans for the property with neighbors who
didn’t have any objections to the new use. She says they have had very
favorable response to Hansburg’s plans. 
Benson says only the second floor would be used for a bed
and breakfast. She says the chapel would be used for weddings, and the first
and third floors for private living quarters. 
Benson says the Grand Hall could be
used for small wedding receptions. The Council also approved a special use
permit for mini-warehouses at 241 N. Bell Street and from 218 to 244 N. Butler
