WOLFVILLE, NS – The Kings County Advertiser & Register reports that the town council of Wolfville, NS is considering changing zoning bylaws to allow businesses to operate in single-family dwellings following a presentation from a local resident who wants to open a home-based nanobrewery.
According to the article, Chris Killacky – a professor of theology at the Acadia Divinity College, and an avid homebrewer – would like to run a small commercial brewing operation from his basement workshop, with an aim to grow the business into a stand-alone microbrewery in the future.
Councillors voted 3-1 in favour of preparing a new report on the issue to be submitted to the Community Development Committee for consideration.
Allowing home-based businesses in homes zoned as R1 (residential, single-family) will require an amendment to Wolfville’s Municipal Planning Strategy and Land Use Bylaw which were approved in 2008.
