A Baker City business that sells sewing patterns and fabrics has offered to buy land in Baker City’s Elkhorn View Industrial Park.

Baker City councilors will consider the offer from Peekaboo Enterprises LLC during their regular meeting Tuesday at City Hall, 1655 First St. The meeting starts at 7 p.m.

The business, owned by Jeremy and Amy Hindman, has offered to buy 1.38 acres in the industrial park at the city’s northwest corner, west of 17th Street and south of Pocahontas Road.

The city owns 65 acres in the park. Current businesses in the industrial park include Behlen Manufacturing, Cutters Edge and Powder River Precision.

In a proposal to the city, Jeremy Hindman, who grew up in Baker City, wrote that he and his wife moved from Idaho to Baker City in 2016 and rented a 2,000-square-foot warehouse.

“We are quickly outgrowing that space and our expansion efforts have stalled because of space limitations,” Jeremy Hindman wrote.
