Agenda / Briefs

1. Call to Order

2. Approval of Minutes

3. SUE 15-01 Special Use Exception

(Restaurant and Alcoholic Beverage Sales by the Drink for Consumption on the Premises Where Sold)
Jet’s Pizza, 14940 Manchester Rd, Ballwin MO 63011
Petitioner: Lorene Samson, Jet’s Pizza, 14940 Manchester Rd, Ballwin MO 63011

Jet’s Pizza has operated as a restaurant at 14940 Manchester Road since February of 2013. The CAP Plaza in which Jet’s is located operates under an approved site development plan pursuant to a Manchester Road Revitalization Overlay District approval via Ordinance 11-16 in 2011. The restaurant operates without any zoning review or approval pursuant to Ordinance 11-16 because restaurants were included as an allowed use under that ordinance. The sale of alcohol by the drink, however, does not have this same provision. Such sales must be approved through the SUE process.

4. SUE 15-02 Special Use Exception

(Restaurant and Alcoholic Beverage Sales by the Drink for Consumption on the Premises Where Sold)
Uyemura Restaurant, 15270 Manchester Rd, Ballwin MO 63011
Petitioner: Robert & Elizabeth Uyemura, 15270 Manchester Rd, Ballwin MO 63011

The Uyemuras propose to open a restaurant with the sale of alcoholic beverages for consumption on the premises in the former Mexican market location at 15270 Manchester Road, at the corner of Manchester and New Ballwin Roads. The restaurant use does not technically require a special use exception because restaurants are allowed by right in the C-1 district if the site was previously included in a special use exception site development plan. The sale of alcoholic beverages for on-site consumption is not subject to this same by-right approval, so the special use exception review procedure is still required.

5. Adjournment
