The desire of Paul and Lori Weinroth to turn a Cummings Valley home with troubled history into a place where dreams come true, inched one step closer on Thursday night.
That's because the Kern County Planning Commission granted the Weinroth's their request for a conditional use permit at its Aug. 22, meeting, which will allow them to operate the Rose Garden Estate Wedding facility on agricultural land just off Bear Valley and Roost roads.
County planner Patricia Thomsen, confirmed the approval.
The home, which is situated on a 20-acre lot, has had a troubled history, which involved two cases of animal cruelty back in 2008 and 2009.
Now the Wienroths will look to breath new life into the property, using it to host full service weddings and events.
"We've been going through our entire life savings doing this, so it's load off our heads," said Paul Weinroth. "The process has been nerve-wrecking, and we are ecstatic to be able to move forward."
Weinroth also added that he and his wife want to make sure that their business will not effect anybody around them, and hope that the event center will be good thing for the community.
With permit in hand, the Wienroths will now embark on the next phase of the project, which includes drafting plans for buildings, landscaping and lighting.
Wienroth said the couple hopes to hold the first wedding sometime within the next two to three months.
