The City Council will continue its discussion about updating city code relating to microbreweries and microdistilleries.

According to a memo from City Manager ChaQuias Thornton, the proposed code update is in anticipation of future development within the city of Stone Mountain.

“As of 2017, where permitted by local ordinance, there was established by Georgia law, an intermediate category of alcohol sale that includes brewpubs, breweries, and distilleries,” Thornton said. “In 2018, the City Council of Stone Mountain amended Chapter 3 Alcoholic Beverages to include definition and provisions for microbreweries. There were, however, no use regulations added to the City’s Zone Code for such use.”

City Council also discuss:

– An online interactive zoning map proposal

– A tentative adoption of the 2021 millage rate

– A memorandum of understanding between the city and the Mainstreet Program

There’s also a planned executive session to discuss real estate.
