Public Information Meeting Went Unattended

No one, including the applicants, attended a public information meeting Monday night about changing the zoning of a property near the St. Charles Road and Richland Road intersection.

Bette S. Weiss is asking for zoning which would allow the property to be used for downtown uses such as restaurants, stores and offices. The property currently houses three residences, all owned by Weiss. If the application is approved, she would more than likely sell the land to a developer, Department of Planning and Development Planner Steve MacIntyre said.

The public information meeting was the first step in the process. The application must also pass the Planning and Zoning Commission and the City Council. MacIntyre said he doesn’t know what the probability of the application passing is.

It’s tricky to anticipate what will happen with the application down the road, MacIntyre said

Monday’s meeting was the second public information meeting for this tract of land and the tract is on its second application. The first application was withdrawn after a neighboring development application at Richland Road withdrew its application.
