Notice is hereby given that the Charles County Planning Commission will hold a Public Hearing on proposed Zoning Text Amendment #18-150, Craft Beverages, on June 18, 2018 at 6:00 p.m. in the County Commissioner’s Meeting Room located in the County Government Building, 200 Baltimore Street, La Plata, Maryland.

Zoning Text Amendment #18-150

Craft Beverages

The proposed amendments to the Charles County Zoning Ordinance would amend County zoning regulations regarding craft alcoholic beverage production. The amendments would create a regulatory setting in Charles County that will attract and retain businesses in the rapidly growing craft beverage industry. The Bill would amend Chapter 297, Sections 49, 63, 99, 212, and 335, to consolidate craft alcoholic beverage production into two new uses, Alcohol Production Facility and Farm Alcohol Production Facility, and include definitions of these new uses. The amendments also include related standards and conditions for the new uses to ensure their compatibility with the surrounding community.

Citizens wishing to make verbal or written comments are encouraged to attend the hearing. The proposed Zoning Text Amendment will be posted to the Planning Commission BoardDocs website approximately two weeks before the hearing at www.boarddocs.com/md/chrlsco/Board.nsf/Public. The file is also available for review in the Department of Planning and Growth Management in the County Government Building, La Plata, Maryland.  For further information, contact Amy Blessinger at (301) 645-0650 or by e-mail at blessinga@charlescountymd.gov.
