The Des Moines City Council this week scheduled an April 4 public hearing on zoning plans for a proposed restaurant and brewery in Sherman Hill.

State of play: The neighborhood association wrote a letter last month in support of the rezoning request, but some residents have concerns about parking or noise.

  • Yes, but: Business hours can run no later than midnight on Fridays and Saturdays and 10pm other days, under a proposed zoning condition.

Details: The brewery would occupy the first floor of 740 18th St, a building that's adjacent to the Concord Apartments.

What's next: The council is expected to vote on the proposal at the April 4 hearing, which begins at 5pm at Des Moines City Hall.

  • If approved, the new business could open late this year, developer Danny Heggen told Axios last month.

Editor's note: This story and headline has been corrected to reflect that City Council approved a public hearing on the zoning plans Monday. An earlier version incorrectly reported that the brewery had received final approval from the council.
