Sturgis Brewing Company Construction Moves Forward

Sturgis’ City Council recently approved a zoning variance for the developers of the new Sturgis Brewing Company. According to the Black Hills Pioneer, the property where the brewery is to be constructed was zoned as General Commercial, and a variance was needed for the plans to meet parking, traffic, and green space requirements.

At its October 15th meeting, the Sturgis City Council approved a 20-year lease of Romey Street for Sturgis Brewing Company, at an annual rate of $350. This approval, along with the variance, will allow the building to be constructed right up to the lot line against Romey Street.

The approval of the variance and the subsequent lease of Romey Street means that Sturgis Brewing Company will effectively use Romey Street as an extension of their property and will clean and maintain that section of the property.  Future city improvements were an object of concern for some, but Sturgis City Manager Daniel Ainslie said that city need is very remote in that area.
