Former Williamsville brewery up for local landmark status

Four Williamsville properties are under consideration for local landmark status, including a warehouse that village officials want to remake as a brewery.

The village's Historic Preservation Commission has recommended the designation for the building at 34-42 W. Spring St., which is being eyed by village officials as the future home of a microbrewery, as well as a food cooperative, artisan market and artists' studio and gallery space.

The other properties are 5429 Main St., the Lehigh Valley Section House at 150 Milton St., and the Zent House at 80 E. Spring St. The Village Board on Monday set Sept. 11 for a public hearing on the proposed designations, which prevents any major changes without the commission's approval.

Also Monday the Village Board voted to seek a state grant for a green infrastructure project at the West Spring Street site, including rain gardens and a subsurface stormwater filtration system.
