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.

SUE 15-01 Special Use Exception
Ms. Lorene Samson was present to answer any questions regarding the petition.

Ms. Samson said under Missouri state law, with a “by the drink” liquor license, Jet’s Pizza would have the right to sell alcohol by the package, although they have no plans to do so. She added that the em-ployees will be trained to not serve minors.
