Rezoning request signs went up at 117 Bradley Street last week, which is directly across from the AMP in Carrollton. We received a statement from the city of Carrollton, June 4 about the pending rezoning request.
It reads in full, “A pending rezoning request for 117 Bradley Street from C-1 (Central Business District) to M-1 (Light Industry) is for a proposed microbrewery. Per Section 6-56 of the City of Carrollton Alcohol Ordinance, microbreweries are only allowed in M-1 (Light Industry) or M-2 (Heavy Industry) zoning districts. Therefore, the request to change the zoning. There are no proposed industrial-type uses for this site. The local applicants are James (Alex) & Victoria Griffin who would like to bring something unique to downtown Carrollton. The proposed name of the business would be “Local Ties Brewing Company”. The request will be considered by the Planning Commission on Tuesday, June 8th at 5:45 pm. and it is anticipated that the Mayor & City Council will hold a second public hearing on Monday, July 12th at 6:00 pm. During the July meeting, the Mayor and City Council will likely decide whether to rezone the property. The public is invited to attend the public hearings to make comments, ask questions, etc.”
Victoria tells The City Menus, “We are thrilled about the opportunity to bring Local Ties Brewing Company to our beautiful downtown area. Our goal is to create a unique experience that is welcoming for all in our community!.” In the past these buildings on Bradley Street were, The Nest, Institute of Imagination, and Simply Cupcakes. Keep watching The City Menus for more updates on the proposed microbrewery.
