The Jacksonville Planning Commission recommended approval July 23 of a rezoning request by Post Modern Brewing LLC to open a craft beer brewery and taproom at 2951 Post St. west of Willow Branch Avenue, where Riverside meets Murray Hill.
The Planning and Development Department recommended denial of the project, saying the proposed use is too intense, the site design does not blend well with the historic pattern of development and outside seating is not compatible with the residential character of the area.
But commission members voted unanimously in favor of the rezoning. Commissioner Ian Brown said the project will preserve a neglected old building, help stimulate positive growth in this commercial area of Post Street and blend well with the nearby residential use.
City Council Land Use and Zoning Committee and then full Council now will consider the rezoning.
