City of Merritt paving the way for potential craft brewery.
An application to rezone 2190 Voght St, to accommodate a craft brewery received three readings from Council at last night's regular meeting.
Councillor David Baker likes the idea of finally having a business operating along a major corridor in the city.
"This is the third time this business owner has tried to bring something into this building. It's been sitting empty for too long. It's been donated a number of times for food drives, so I think it's great somebody is going to be able to do something, instead of having an empty store."
The applicant is proposing to brew beer using local ingredients, and the brewery will feature a traditional lounge tasting area.
The rezoning application is subject to a public hearing.
