The purpose and effectof the proposed Zoning By-law Amendment is to rezone a portion of the land to an Industrial Park Exception (M5-E) zone.  The proposed M5-E zone would permit the establishment of a brewery including uses accessory thereto such as, but not limited to, the retail sale of beer, ale, malt liquor, related products and promotional equipment, catering services and the preparation of food for consumption on a portion of the property.  The proposed Zoning By-law Amendment would also remove the Holding Three (H3) holding zone symbol from the entire property.
