Plan Commission

5:30p room 201 CCB

5. 47508 Accepting the report and recommendations of the Housing Strategy Committee - 2016 Housing Report - Consolidated Update.

7. 47301 Consideration of a conditional use to establish a brewpub in an existing multi-tenant commercial building at 1133 E. Wilson Street; 6th Ald. Dist.

From the staff report: The applicant, Working Draft Beer Company, LLC., proposes to open a brewpub at 1130 E. Wilson Street in a roughly 3,800?square?foot tenant space of an 11,000?square?foot, multi?tenant, commercial building. As the tenant space is currently unfinished warehouse space, a complete interior renovation will be undertaken. This will consist primarily of adding interior walls and outfitting the facility with various equipment to create a roughly 1,700?square?foot area at the front of the space for the dining and taproom and a 1,900?square?foot area at the rear for production brewing and food service.  ?While the applicant has made mention of an outdoor seating area in their submitted materials (which will also require a Conditional Use approval), that is not part of this application. 

The applicant holds a Brewery Permit (issued by the State Department of Revenue (DOR)). A brewery is authorized to conduct retail sales of its own beer, or beer manufactured in the state of Wisconsin, at the brewery premises and at one additional retail outlet under the brewer permit issued by DOR. As a result, there is no requirement to obtain a local alcohol license. Therefore, there are no hours of operation or other conditions as there would typically be with Alcohol License Review Committee and Common Council review. Regarding the hours of operation, the applicant is requesting the following: Monday – Thursday, 3:00 pm – 10:00 pm; Friday and Saturday, 11:00 am – 11:00 pm; and Sunday, 11:00 am – 9:00 pm with a once a year exception for New Year's Eve, when the tasting room will be open until 1:00 am. For the brewing production, the requested hours are Monday – Friday, 7:00 am – 3:00 pm. (These hours and conditions are consistent with the recommendations of the Marquette Neighborhood Association.)?

I held a well attended neighborhood meeting May 3 and there was general support for the proposal. I support the application with the conditions listed in the staff report.


11. 47307 Consideration of a conditional use for an outdoor eating area for a restaurant-tavern at 744 Williamson Street; 6th Ald. Dist.

The applicant, Food Fight, Inc.,seeks approval to operate an outdoor seating area within an existing outdoor patio structure of an existing restaurant?tavern establishment on the site (the Eldorado Grill) with intent to serve both food and beverage (including alcoholic beverages) in this area. While the patio was originally added around 2000, the applicant never acquired the necessary Conditional Use approval. 

The hours of operation requested for the outdoor seating area are the same as those for the restaurant?tavern: Monday – Wednesday, 4:30 pm – 9:00 pm; Thursday and Friday, 4:30 pm – 10:00 pm; Saturday, 9:00 am – 2:00 pm and 4:30 pm – 10:00 pm; and Saturday, 9:00 am – 2:00 pm and 4:30 pm – 9:00 pm. (These hours and conditions are consistent with the recommendations of Marquette Neighborhood Association.)   No structural or programmatic changes to the existing principal building or restaurant are proposed as part of this request.  ?
