Over three (3) years ago the Village Board and Plan Commission amended its ordinances to allow "small batch dairy production" as an allowable Conditional Use in the B-1 Neighborhood Business District. The impetus for this Commission and the Board to agree with the petitioned change to our code text was based on this nearly identical proposed business operation, a boutique grocery store/deli, which would create various soft cheeses and dairy products from the milk collected from the dairy operation occurring on the 77-acre farm next door. The farm next door is owned by the agent of this petition who has worked out a private agreement for the use of the subject property for business purposes.

Looking forward to a new and unique local business in that area.
