New bank proposed near Lake St. Louis Boulevard

[Missouri Bank rendering]

At O’Fallon City Council’s meeting on June 13, council members Dale Kling [Ward 3] and Nathan Bibb [Ward 3] sponsored two bills to approve a bank with a drive-thru and a drive-up ATM.

Kirk Cutter from Cochran Engineering presented plans on behalf of Missouri Bank, including diagrams of the 12.79-acre site and artist renderings of the proposed 3,360 square foot building.

The bill [No. 7095] would grant a conditional use permit [CUP] for The Missouri Bank to build and operate a bank building with a drive-thru at Hwy. N and Lake St. Louis Boulevard, located at the southern end of O’Fallon. Another bill [No. 7096] call for the passage of an area plan for the property.

Both bills were given first readings at the June 13 meeting and were the topic of a public hearing and public comment.

One resident said the building rendering showed an attractive building, but expressed concerns about the traffic at that location. The speaker also pointed out that a traffic study had not yet been completed before the two bills were introduced.  Another concern was the possibility of adding traffic and vehicle volume to the Hwy. N corridor. He concluded by stating that Hwy. N needs to be upgraded and widened first, due to its limited capacity.

Both bills are expected to see second readings at the city’s next council meeting on June 27.
