Yes, success! We made it through our public hearing on Wednesday evening, and the appeal against our conditional use permit was denied. Big, huge sigh of relief. Thank you to everyone who showed up to support us, and especially those who spoke on our behalf. We appreciate it so much, and wouldn’t have been as successful without you.
So glad it’s over though. Maybe now I can stop having those stress-related stomachaches, and sleep through the night without being waken by panic attacks. But I doubt it. At least now we can finally move past this part of the process, and on to the next bureaucratic hurdle.
I mentioned a couple posts back that our TTB (federal) license was approved, and we received it in the mail on Thursday. Our ABC license has already been applied for, and is currently being processed. Our building plans were approved by the Health Department a week ago, and were subsequently submitted to Building & Safety for approval. Once we get that approval from Building & Safety we can pull our building permits and finally start the build-out. At long last! We’re so close, I can almost taste the sweet wort running from the mash tun!
