WOLFVILLE, NS – The Kings County Advertiser & Register reports that the town council of Wolfville, NS has denied the request of a resident to discuss adjusting local zoning bylaws to allow for a business – or more specifically, a nanobrewery – to operate in a single-family home.
As reported earlier this month, local homebrewer Chris Killacky approached the council in January to request a zoning change that would allow him to operate a small commercial brewery out of his basement workshop.
While council initially showed interest in investigating the proposal, a more recent meeting saw the group decide to not reopen discussion on the Municipal Planning Strategy (MPS), a 2008 plan that does not allow single-family residential homes to be rezoned for home-based commercial businesses.
It’s unclear if Killacky intends to look into other options for his brewery, such as a stand-alone facility in a business zoned area.
