Missouri Great Dane, which sells and services many different types of trailers including tractor-trailers, has proposed an expansion of its existing business.
The property at 404 S. Cool Springs Road is zoned I-2/Heavy Industrial District. The company is proposing to construct a parking lot addition on the parcel directly to the east of its current location. This area had been partially cleared and graded in a previously-approved site plan. The applicant now is proposing to expand the parking lot into that area to allow for additional space for trailers and RVs. Accordingly, an expansion of the previously approved Conditional Use Permit is required.
Adjacent to this property to the north is a construction equipment business, to the south is a sod business, to the east is zoned industrial, and to the west is a city of O’Fallon facility.
Bill No. 7158 sponsored by Ward 1 council members Dave Hinman and Deana Smith proposes granting the CUP to Steve and Patti Jones/Missouri Great Dane. At the Dec. 12 City Council meeting, the bill was given a first reading and a public hearing. If the typical process is followed, the second reading and vote on passage will be at the Jan. 9 council meeting.
The Planning and Zoning Commission has recommended approval of this CUP.
