The St. Louis County Planning Commission will hear proposals for a QuikTrip at the corner of Lemay Ferry and Butler Hill roads and a development named Butler Hill Centre March 14. 

The hearings can be joined on Webex. To access the meeting on WebEx, use access code  2630 025 2893 and password pcph0314. Members of the public can listen to live audio of the meeting by calling 1-409-418-9388. 

The proposed QuikTrip is on a 2.58 acre plot and would feature a typical gas station/convenience store combination. The development has been called into question in the past for traffic concerns and the fact that a 100-year old building would have to be torn down to accommodate the request.

The building in question is called the Kassebaum Building and QuikTrip has stated it would “honor the significance of the building” by building a monument wall using a brick from the old building. The building has been vacant for about five years.

The second request is for 1.77 acres on the south side of Butler Hill Road, north of MidAmerica Lane and approximately 150 feet west of MidAmerica Plaza. The proposal asks for a change in zoning for offices, restaurant, retail sales and personal services.
