I am meeting with local officials about zoning for my micro distillery. The passage of a micro or craft distillery law is relatively recent in Illinois. Most zoning ordinances dont account for the changes. Does anyone have any sample language that I would like to share?
Get in touch with me, and we can discuss. We were able to work things out in advance with our locals, they had to create a new permit and change zoning laws for us specifically. They also had to hire a consultant to do the code review, and they ended up treating the bonded area as F1, as suggested by Rickdiculous. There are some real coordination issues between the local, the state of Illinois, and the TTB that make interpretation of space usage and type not so obvious.
We are in a small suburb outside of Chicago.

Where a material has multiple hazards, all hazards shall be addressed.
9. The storage of distilled spirits and wines in wooden barrels and cask
Local zoning may vary where the authorities have taken spirits production into consideration, but in most cases where you're the first one at the gate, the community may not have addressed the question and may have the perception it is much more dangerous than the Fed or International fire authorities feel it is.
