NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. - Craft booze and brews may be coming to select sections of New Rochelle after the City Council passed a zoning amendment that will make it easy for brewers to take their talents - and drinks - to downtown.
The New Rochelle City Council has passed legislation that will permit the production of craft beverages such as beer, cider and wine within certain downtown zones. The change comes after the legislation was proposed last month before being officially brought to the table.
According to a memo from the New Rochelle City Department of Development, “breweries and related uses have now proliferated with a flexible business model, including space for on-site retail sales, consumption, entertainment, as well as a variety of dining options. With certain parameters in place, there uses can be quite appropriate in a downtown area and can greatly contribute to the economy, vitality, and sense of identity for a city.”
