Updated- Wednesday Board of Adjustment: City Posted Wrong Address

corner1:30 pm Wednesday, October 4th, 2017
Board of Adjustment
Room 208, City Hall

It turns out the City used the wrong address for the hearing notice sign on S 11th and the notice in City Journal.

It was not an Appeal of Permit Denial for appealFitness Center/Gym at 2001 S 11th @ Allen owned by Packer Investments. See structure photo. Yes. Those are windows and doors painted on the boards.

The correct address for the wannabe gym is 2000 S 11th. Same issue applies- not enough street parking to support another business. At the south end of the block- 11th & Russell- is a hair salon. One block east- Menard & Allen- is Duke’s bar. One block west- 12th & Allen- is Pizzeoli’s Pizza and Nadine’s.

hearingThe hearing was not held. The applicant asked for a continuance.

The City Journal is published by the City Register, the City’s version of a County Clerk. Unlike most counties in Missouri, here it is an appointed position. The new Mayor recently appointed a new Register.

The City does not do transparency very well. Meeting information is hard to track down because there is no central repository/online calendar. In this instance, the information once found was not even correct.

The City is having an extra super bad transparency week. “The TIF commission did not make a recommendation and planned to take a vote Oct. 24 because a required public notice was not published on time.” From 10/4/2017 St. Louis Post-Dispatch: City Foundry developers lining up financing for second phase 

Disclaimer: The Committeewoman lives on the next block north of the proposed gym.
