Public Hearing Process Begins For Riverport School Proposal

A proposal for a micro-brewery to be housed in the former Riverport School comes before the area advisory committee tonight. It will meet to discuss the plan by  "Yard-Arm Brewery". The Mayor of the District of Lunenburg, Don Downe, says the proposal is being viewed as a job creator.

As many as ten people may be employed by the micro-brewery once in operation. Tonight is the first step in several months of public meetings before a final decision is made by MODL council. Mayor Downe expects the proposal to be before council before spring with a recommendation one way or the other from the Riverport advisory committee.
