Kirkwood Planning and Zoning commissioners will review a site plan for a U-Gas station and convenience store Wednesday night.
The application for a special use exception permit for the property at 915 North Kirkwood Road between Wilson and West Sarah avenues includes six fueling stations, a convenience store and car wash.
The property is adjacent to Kirkwood homes. In a preliminary review of the application, Kirkwood Public Works Director Todd Rehg made comments concerning the application, some of which address the station's proximity to a residential area.
In a letter to petitioner Steve Quigley of Clayton Engineering, Rehg commented that a 20-foot planting screen shall be provided along the western property line that abuts residentially zoned property. The screen shall be the entire width of the property to within 10 feet of the right-of-way.
Rehg also commented that all lighting shall be designed with recessed lighting fixtures where bulbs are not visible to neighboring properties and that rooftop equipment, air-conditioning units and mechanical equipment shall be completely screened from view of adjoining properties and the public right-of-way.
The Planning and Zoning Commission will meet at 7 p.m. at Kirkwood City Hall Wednesday to hear a presentation from Quigley about the proposed U-Gas.
