Public Hearing Announcement from
Ward 3 Aldermen Mark Winings and Alex Berger III
As your Ward 3 Aldermen, we wanted to let you know that a request has been made by a representative of two properties along Maryland Avenue that are currently zoned C-1 to add drive-through banking to the list of allowable uses (with a conditional use permit) for all C-1 property in Clayton. The Plan Commission voted 2-2 to recommend denial to the request. The Board of Aldermen, at its 8/28/12 meeting, conducted a public hearing which has been continued to the next meeting on 9/11/12 to provide additional opportunity to hear from residents and other interested parties.
A zoning map of the City of Clayton can be found on the city’s web site at http://www.claytonmo.gov/Assets/Planning+and+Development/PDF+Files/Official+Clayton+Zoning+Map+2009.pdf. This map will show the location of all areas currently zoned C-1, which generally are found along Maryland Avenue, Clayton Road, Demun, and at Wydown and Hanley. The agenda material for the item considered can be found (on page 49) at http://www.claytonmo.gov/Assets/Agendas+and+Minutes/Board+of+Aldermen/Agendas/2012/08-28-12+BOA+Agenda.pdf.
The meeting on 9/11/12 will be at 7:00pm and will be held at The Center of Clayton.
Please note that if this amendment passes, any particular plan for drive-through banking in a C-1 zoned area would still require a conditional use permit, which would entail a separate public hearing and approval by the Board of Aldermen. However, it would make such a development possible (with a conditional use permit) where now it is prohibited completely. We welcome your input on this matter.
