|The Public Hearing for the Proposed Port City Spirits|
small scale distillery and tasting room takes place tonight
The proponents of a proposed Distillery and Tasting Room for the old U Brew location on Fraser Street will gain the feedback of their neighbours tonight, with the proposed use for the location to be the topic for tonights Public Hearing on a Zoning Bylaw amendment to allow for the use.
The Hearing is set for 6 PM in Council Chambers
As we outlined previously this month, the pat to Public Hearing was charted at the May 9th session, following a report from City Staff on the proposed small scale distillery and tasting room, as part of the review, the city's planning staff observed how the proposed development fits into the city's Official Community Plan and a desire for more development in the downtown core area.
The topic will return to the attention of Council later this evening as well, scheduled as an Agenda item for the Regular Council session starting at 7PM
