Village board approves zone change for Empire Brewing Company

Farmstead brewery project now continues forward with site plan and architectural review

— Village board members offered no comment and only language-clarifying questions about the resolution, then unanimously approved the action 4-0. Trustee Jim Joseph was absent, being out of town on business.

The next steps to the brewery project will be site plan and architectural approval by the village planning board. That board met the night before, on Monday, June 10, but did not discuss the project, said its Chair Rich Huftalen. “We will begin our consideration of site plan review as quickly as possible,” he said.

The planning board expects to discuss the Empire project at its next meeting on Monday, July 8.

The approved resolution, as well as all other documents related to the brewery project, are available for public viewing at village hall.
