The St. Louis County Planning Commission will hold a public hearing on a proposal for a vehicle service/window tinting center in an existing business park on Meramec Bottom Road Sept. 12.

The hearing can be joined on Webex. To access the meeting on Webex, use access code 2630 836 7593 and password pcph0912. Members of the public can listen to live audio of the meeting by calling 1-409-418-9388 and using the same access code and password provided above.

The proposal calls for amended C-8 zoning to allow a vehicle service/window tinting business to reoccupy one of the five existing structures in the business park. The petitioner is using a previously approved site development plan from 2006 for the existing business park, 4401-4409 Meramec Bottom Road.  The 2006 site plan included with the petition shows one of the five structures, a one-story metal frame building, as “proposed” but it has since been constructed after the site plan’s initial approval.

The first phase of the business park was built between 1997 and 2000 and included relocating Meramec Bottom Road at that time, which is labeled as “relocated Meramec Bottom Road” on the 2006 site plan.

Editor’s note: This article has been corrected to clarify the petitioner’s use of a previously approved site plan as well as further clarifications about the existing buildings at the business park and the proposed plan for the vehicle service center.
