The owners of Auburn’s Prison City Pub and Brewery are moving ahead with their long awaited expansion plans. A public notice on the city’s website says Dawn and Mark Schulz have applied for a zoning variance for a property on Technology Park Blvd.
Last week, the Schulz’s announced they are closing the Copper Pig BBQ restaurant on Genesee Street to concentrate on the expansion, drawing this comment from Auburn Downtown BID Executive Director Stephanie DeVito on Monday’s Finger Lakes Morning News.
DeVito added there’s already interest from entrepreneurs looking at the Copper Pig location.
Dawn Shulz told the Citizen they’re still looking at other locations and could pull the variance request before the Zoning Board of Appeals takes up the request when it meets on Monday.
