Public Hearing Set for U-Gas Coming to Kirkwood

The Kirkwood City Council will vote on a proposed station and convenience store at 915 North Kirkwood Rd.

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.
