Microbrewery Ordinance


Project Description

Proposed amendments to the County's Zoning Ordinance would provide definitions for microbreweries and microbrewery related uses; and would allow for the development of microbreweries and microbrewery related uses on lands that are zoned A (Agriculture), consistent with the County's General Plan. Also, the proposed amendments define agri-tourism; and add a definition for tasting room (on-site) that would apply to tasting rooms for wineries, olive oil mills, and microbreweries.

California Environmental Quality Act Document Now Available for Review

A Notice of Intent to Adopt a Mitigated Negative Declaration (NOIA) and an Initial Study/draft Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS/MND) for the proposed Microbrewery Ordinances were released on August 29, 2017 for a 30-day public review period which will end on September 29, 2017.
