Frontier Justice, LLC, has requested that O’Fallon issue industrial revenue development bonds in the approximate amount of $8,680,000, for the purpose of constructing a 27,000-square-foot building at Post Road and Technology Drive.
According to its website, Frontier Justice is a “next-generation retail distributor, specializing in firearms and fashion.” Their facilities include “gun ranges, shooting simulators, entertainment and education for the entire family.”
The company already has facilities in Lee’s Summit and Kansas City, Missouri, and in Omaha, Nebraska.
The bonds would be payable solely out of payments, revenues and receipts derived from the lease of the project property by the city to Frontier Justice. No city funds would be used to pay the bonds and the city would have no financial obligation whatsoever with respect to the bonds.
City staff already has reviewed the proposed site plans for the facility. The Planning and Zoning Commission will review the same at its meeting on Aug. 5.
Meanwhile, the City Council voted 10-0 on July 8 to approve Resolution 07-08-2021B, stating their intent to issue the bonds to provide funds for “this project that will yield public benefits of new jobs and taxes.”
