Hubbard County Board grants Foxy’s outdoor expansion, music


The Hubbard County Board approved a conditional use permit (CUP) for Foxy’s Bar and Grill at their March 16 meeting.

The CUP allows for an outdoor expansion of the bar/restaurant consisting of 24 customer seats, a 20-by-20-foot tent, a 10-by-12-foot covered stage and the ability to hold outdoor music events.

The Hubbard County Planning Commission recommended approval of the CUP with 12 conditions. County commissioners approved the CUP with their own additional amendments.

The board limited outdoor seating capacity to 24, but during an outdoor event the maximum capacity is 50. They reduced the number of boat slips at Foxy’s dock on Hay Creek from four to three.
