    OK... sorry for the 3 month hiatus. Been dealing with towns, lawyers, etc.

    Here is where we stand.

    Met with architect yesterday will be sitting with him next week to get into more detailed design work.
    Have a parking/traffic study being done Friday and Saturday.
    Lawyer is reviewing our lease and should be back to us this week... assuming our lawyer finds the out clause in the lease as being strong enough.

    If all goes as planned, could be signing a lease next week. Once parking study is done and architect gives us a very simple plan for the town to look at, we are hoping to get on the January town docket for initial approval. Basically, zoning-wise they cannot say no... but parking will be an issue as there are hundreds of apartments going in over the next 1.5 years. Everything is going to come down to occupancy. If we get past the initial town meeting... which for the record, we already met with the head of planning for the town, and he is 100% behind our little project... but still needs to go through the regular process.

    Once we get past the town, then we get to deal with the county. We are hoping that based on a couple other breweries that have recently went through this process, that it will be more streamlined as the county tries to get a grip on dealing with the waste water.

    I hope that this won't turn into another 3 months of silence... but doubt it because things are making serious moved forward.

    I really hope this all works out for you. I don’t get down to the greater NYC area very often, but I hope to make a side trip on my next visit.

    Once we get open... by all means come in... will take care of you.

    Town iteslf can't deny us on usage as the use is already part of the current zoning. Like I said, biggest issues are parking and county mostly for wastewater... I know from friends that they have to drain into a slop sink, which makes zero sense, and they have to add a trap so the town can take water samples from time to time. I mean , hey, whatever they want... just expedite the process. We're really hoping that they got their act together with the last couple of breweries. Honestly, a lot of the older ones were kind of given free reign on what went into the sewer systems... now the county is trying to get a firmer grasp on it... and I get that. Honestly one of biggest chemicals breweries use is sanitzer. Those kill bacteria... problem is that bacteria is a major part of what is used in sewage plants.

    Meeting with architect tomorrow to go over basic design work... mostly so we can get a simple sketch to the town before January. Then we start designing in earnest... Although we pretty much know what we want to do.
