At its Aug. 8 meeting, the O’Fallon City Council approved Bill 7109.1 by a vote of 9 to 0 to grant a conditional use permit to Charlestown Crossing, LLC, for an outdoor storage facility on the specified tract of land. The bill was sponsored by council members Dave Hinman and Deana Smith [both of Ward 1].
The outdoor storage parking lot will have approximately 305 outdoor storage spaces for recreational vehicles, camping trailers and similar items. Phase 1 will have 139 spaces and the Phase 2 will have 166 spaces. The lot will have a perimeter fence around it and have two keycard-controlled entrances.
After the July 25 public hearing and first reading, the council asked to have the initial bill revised to add stipulations regarding working and licensed vehicles and trailers, and to have the proposed attractive front fencing extended across the full border of the property facing T.R. Hughes Boulevard beginning with Phase 1. As approved, Bill No. 7109.1 included those revisions.
