YATES – The Orleans County Planning Board has approved a new business on Lakeshore Road where the owner will build portable “Amish-style” sheds.

Randal Stauffer is planning to construct a 50-by-60-foot pole barn for the business that will be next to his home at 11464 Lakeshore Rd. Planners approved the site plan and recommended the town of Yates give Stauffer a permit for a home business.

Stauffer will join a growing number of Amish- and Mennonite-owned enterprises in the Lyndonville area.
