Special Judge ruled to reverse the zoning board’s denial for White Barn Venue

Will be able to operate through March

The Madison zoning board will have to issue a permit for The White Barn Venue to operate through next March, that after Special Judge W. Gregory Coy ruled Monday to reverse the zoning board’s denial of a conditional use permit for Bryan and Shelly Dews.

Coy, the circuit judge in Switzerland County, said in his ruling the zoning board had no choice but to issue the permit because a conditional-use permit had been granted in 2016 and conditions had not changed.

The Dews appealed the zoning board denial on May 15th to the Circuit Court.

The venue is on land Bryan Dews’ parents owned that he and his wife bought after his parents died and rent it for weddings.

The barn is outside Madison but is within two miles of the city limit, so the city’s zoning ordinance is in effect there. The land is zoned residential-agricultural.
