Even though a U-Gas did not find the favor of the city's planning and zoning commission, it's not stopping the business from pursuing development of a station and convenience store near the corner of Manchester and North Kirkwood roads.
A public hearing for the proposed U-Gas at 915 North Kirkwood Rd. has been placed on the Kirkwood City Council's Feb. 7 agenda.
When the city's planning and zoning commission denied recommending a special use exception permit for U-Gas, homeowners opposed to the development considered the decision a victory.
U-Gas expressed an interest in appealing the commission's decision months ago, but the city was waiting for the business to submit a revised site plan before it could set a public hearing.
During the interim, Dirt Cheap filed for a commercial occupancy permit for the site. The Kirkwood City Council later passed an amendment to the city's zoning code that would require Dirt Cheap to apply for a special use exception permit.
