Mason Jar Cafe Seeking Rezoning For Expansion

A popular restaurant in the Arts District of Benton Harbor is looking to expand. The Mason Jar Cafe is requesting a zoning change for vacant lots at the corner of Fifth and Park streets in Benton Harbor from light industrial to central business in order to put up a new building. The City of Benton Harbor Planning Commission will hold a public hearing on the request next month on March 3 at 5:30 pm in City Hall. The Planning Commission will consider the request the same night after the public hearing. The Mason Jar Cafe opened in 2014 and specializes in using as many local and organic ingredients as possible in the menu.
