PURPOSE, EFFECT & LOCATION OF ZONING BY-LAW AMENDMENT (Application File No. Z-2018-12)
The purpose of the amendment is to rezone the subject lands to permit a micro-brewery as a home occupation within an existing single detached residential dwelling.  The micro-brewery use would be located within the existing attached garage so no new construction is proposed.  The micro-brewery use would also include retail sales of the product produced on the premises.  The single detached dwelling remains the primary use of the property.
 
The effect of the amendment is to establish a Residential One Exception Thirty-Seven (R1-E37) zone with special provisions that include a micro-brewery with retail sales of product produced on site as a permitted use as a home occupation and to rezone the subject lands from Residential One (R1) to Residential One Exception Thirty-Seven (R1-E37).
 
The lands affected by the Amendment are located abutting Golf Course Road and Mallard Street and are known municipally as 1 Mallard Street, being Block 40, Plan 617, within Part Lot 22, Concession 1, in the geographic Township of Pembroke, in the Township of Laurentian Valley, as shown on the Key Map.
