PUBLIC NOTICE AMENDED PUBLIC NOTICE Notice is hereby provided pursuant to Sections 609(b)(1) and 610(a) of the Pennsylvania Municipalities Planning Code, as amended, 53 P.S. §§ 10609(b)(1) and 10610 , (hereinafter, "MPC"), that the Borough Council of the Borough of Catasauqua (hereinafter, "Council") will hold a public hearing on Wednesday, May 25, 2016, commencing at 7:00 P.M., at the Borough Hall located at 118 Bridge Street, Catasauqua, Pennsylvania, for the purpose of taking public comment and input concerning the adoption of an amendment to the Borough of Catasauqua Zoning Ordinance to authorize the establishment of Craft Beverage Restaurants and Craft Beverage Production Facilities in certain zoning districts within the Borough, as well as amending Attachment 2, Table of Permitted Uses by Districts Primarily Non-Residential Districts to reflect such uses as special exception uses in certain zoning districts. Council intends to consider passage of the proposed Ordinance at a public meeting to be held on Monday, June 6, 2016, commencing at 7:00 P.M. Said public meeting shall take place at the Borough Hall located at 118 Bridge Street, Catasauqua, Pennsylvania. Copies of the proposed Ordinance have been delivered to the Lehigh Valley Planning Commission and the Borough of Catasauqua Planning Commission for comment pursuant to applicable law. The following constitutes a summary of the contents of the proposed Ordinance, prepared by the Solicitor pursuant to Section 610(a) of the MPC, as amended, 53 P.S. §10610(a). The title of the proposed Ordinance is: "AN ORDINANCE AMENDING THE BOROUGH OF CATASAUQUA ZONING ORDINANCE TO DEFINE "CRAFT BEVERAGE," "CRAFT BEVERAGE RESTAURANT" AND "CRAFT BEVERAGE PRODUCTION FACILITY;" TO CREATE "CRAFT BEVERAGE RESTAURANT" AND "CRAFT BEVERAGE PRODUCTION FACILITY" USES; TO AUTHORIZE SUCH USES AS SPECIAL EXCEPTION USES IN THE DOWNTOWN COMMERCIAL (DC), GENERAL COMMERCIAL (GC) AND TOWN CENTER (TC) ZONING DISTRICTS; TO PROVIDE USE, BULK, PERFORMANCE AND OTHER REGULATIONS FOR SUCH USES; AND TO AMEND ATTACHMENT 2 "BOROUGH OF CATASAUQUA TABLE OF PERMITTED USES BY DISTRICT PRIMARILY NONRESIDENTIAL DISTRICTS" TO REFLECT SUCH USES AS SPECIAL EXCEPTION USES IN THOSE ZONING DISTRICTS." The intent of the Ordinance is to authorize "Craft Beverage Restaurants" and "Craft Beverage Production Facilities" (both defined terms) as special exception uses in certain zoning districts within the Borough. "Craft Beverage" is a defined term for alcoholic beverage products manufactured by small, independent and privately held breweries, wineries or distilleries having a principal office for doing business or a Craft Beverage Production Facility located in the Borough and subject to regulation and licensing by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Such facilities will become special exception uses in the Downtown Commercial (DC), General Commercial (GC) and Town Center (TC) Zoning Districts under the classification of "Primarily Nonresidential Districts." Additional use, bulk and performance regulations are imposed by the Ordinance. Section 3 establishes the effective date as following enactment by Council and Mayoral approval. Section 4 repeals all other ordinances in conflict to the extent of any such conflict, and Section 5 is a savings clause which preserves the balance of the proposed Ordinance if a part thereof is deemed invalid. Copies of the proposed Ordinance may be examined and or be obtained at the Borough Hall located at 118 Bridge Street, Catasauqua, Pennsylvania, during normal business hours, Monday through Friday, 8:00 A.M. to 4:30 P.M. In addition, and in accordance with Section 610 of the MPC, as amended, attested copies of the proposed Ordinance have been filed in the Lehigh County Development of Law (Lehigh County Government Center, 17 S. 7th Street, Allentown, PA); and The Catasauqua Press (1633 N. 26th Street, Allentown, PA) newspaper.
