“We don’t quite know yet,” he said. “Give us about 30 to 45 days.”
Lebanon and county officials have identified at least three locations where the development of a microbrewery is being considered, including downtown, just south of downtown in the Old Shoe Factory building and north of downtown at the Warren County Fairgrounds.
Yavorsky said he had looked at several downtown Lebanon locations, as well as spots just north of downtown at the fairgrounds and west on Main Street-Ohio 63.
The Lebanon City Council discussed the new regulations during a work session on Wednesday. A public hearing is anticipated on Tuesday, before a vote on approval.
Yavorsky and Star City both acknowledged he was no longer part of the operation, which opened in November 2013 in downtown Miamisburg.
In July, Yavorsky, one of three founders of the Miamisburg microbrewery, brought a lawsuit against his partners and the business in Montgomery County Common Pleas Court. The case has been closed, according to court records.
Allgeyer attended last Tuesday’s planning commission meeting for Yavorsky, who was asked to share his ideas about microbreweries.
“He has some insight on microbreweries,” said Sam Hill, the city’s director of planning, adding that Yavorsky was looking at opening a microbrewery in Lebanon.
