Land Development Code (LDC) 19-1053 Text Amendment to LDC Parts 2.02.02, 6.11.00 and 12.01.00


Purpose
The purpose of this proposed amendment is to add standards for Brew Pubs and Microbreweries / Microwineries to establish the parameters and metrics to regulate it.

This amendment will recognize the emergence of local, independent alcoholic beverage producers that consist of small production facilities and mixed-use concepts which have re-shaped certain expectations about potential impacts of this land-use type when developed in small scale.

The State issues a manufacturer license which allows the production and distribution of beer and wine. However, due to the manufacturing use and scale, the Land Development Code does not permit this use as part of the Brew Pubs.

The amendment will incorporate definitions, standards, limitations to the production of Malt Beverages and Wine/Mead; and include a mechanism to enforce it.

Land Development Code (LDC) 19-1054 Text Amendment to LDC Part 6.11.121


Purpose

The purpose of this proposed amendment is to clarify the Car Wash use in the Commercial Neighborhood (CN) zoning district. Land Development Code, Section 6.11.121 requires car wash facilities to be self-service only.

Presently, during site development application, staff reviews car wash facilities that are "automated" differently from "self-service". Per the LDC Part 12.00.00, Definitions, car wash facility types are differentiated by 'automated', 'self-served' or 'staffed'.

Through this Text Amendment, the Conditional Use requirements in the Land Development Code, Section 6.11.121 can be updated to clarify that self-serve is also automated. In the CN district, automated car wash facilities will be permitted.
