A Yukon company is asking for permission to store bricks in its outside yard.

The Yukon Board of Adjustments will consider the request when it convenes at 6 p.m. Aug. 2 inside the Centennial Building, 12 S 5th.

Jeff Evans of Bailey Brothers is seeking a variance to allow outside storage at 800 Industrial Drive. The property is on the southeast corner of Industrial Drive and Arlington Drive in Cooperville Industrial Park.

City of Yukon ordinance does not permit outside storage of building supplies in C-3 (restricted commercial district) zoning.

“We are seeking a variance to store brick outside of our building on our enclosed yard area,” Jeff Evans of Bailey Brothers wrote in the variance application. “It is important for us to have both businesses operating out of the same facility and outside storage of this material is a must.”

Bailey Brothers has a metal building with perimeter fencing on its Industrial Drive property.

“With the storage of brick materials in the yard, we can do some things to limit visibility and any other concerns,” according to the application.

Evans has offered to install vinyl slats in the existing chain link fencing to reduce visibility of the outside storage area and to “limit stacking height if that helps.”

Bailey Brothers is a plumbing, heating and air conditioning company serving residents and businesses of Oklahoma City, Yukon, El Reno, and surrounding areas.


Board of Adjustments members next Monday also will consider a variance request in rural Yukon.

Applicant Marci Andis is asking for two principal buildings (living quarters) to be placed on one lot in the 7400 block of N Richland Road.

City of Yukon ordinance allows no more than one principal building on any one lot.

The applicant is seeking permission to build a 24×60 shop building with 480 square feet of living quarters. The 10-acre property already has a 2,000 square foot house.

Yukon Board of Adjustments members are Chairman Joe Horn, Vice Chairman Sherry Huston, Buddy Carpenter, Mike McKee, and Rhonda Dennis.
