Planning commission approves new brewery

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - Forbidden Peak will have a brewery and tasting room at the old UAS book store in Auke Bay.

    The CBJ Planning Commission approved a conditional use permit for the brewery.

    The Commission also decided to spend more time on the review of a proposed urban agriculture ordinance.  Currently the borough limits livestock to six hens for personal use.  More than six is considered commercial agriculture.  The proposal could expand livestock allowed to include roosters, cows, ducks, goats, sheep, llamas, pot belly pigs, bees and other animals.

    Community Development Director Jill Maclean said the Commission wanted to discuss the issues further like enforcement, noise, and odor, before taking action.

    The planning  commission also signed off on plans for a red light in the Mendenhall Valley at the intersection of Stephen Richards Drive and Riverside Drive
