Vacant city property draws proposal for day spa, shop
Dan and Tina Ehler own a successful day spa business just outside of Kellogg, but per a proposal they submitted to the Newton City Council on Monday night, that business could soon find a new home in Newton.
The Ehlers’ proposal, which was submitted “just prior to the meeting,” Director of Finance and Development and Acting City Administrator Bryan Friedman said, was the sole formal interest received regarding the potential sale of a property owned by the city at 2009 First Ave. E., an old brick home adjacent to the tennis courts at Aurora Heights Park. The home, which used to house the RSVP Program, has been vacant for six years as councilor Noreen Otto pointed out in the council discussion.
Dan Ehlers explained before the council that the couple’s plan was two-fold: they would both renovate the home to its “original grandeur,” per the proposal document and construct two buildings behind the home to house a day spa and salon in addition to storage and space for refurbishing antiques.
