County planning hears vehicle repair shop

By Lucas Irizarry, Staff Reporter

A proposal for a car repair shop on Lemay Ferry Road north of Southcrest Way was heard by the St. Louis County Planning Commission April 12.

The proposal is on a .92 acre lot. It features four service bays, two of which are in a to-be-remodeled car wash, one sales bay and pavement and gravel resurfacing.

Engineer Steve Rush, representing the petitioner, said there would be a maximum of 25 cars on site, and no car would remain for more than a week.

Petitioners questioned if the site should feature a fence for the lot or trash area, and Rush said the petitioner would be open to adding fences as needed. 

The commission will rule on the proposal at a future executive meeting.
