Monday gained approval from the city of Planning and Zoning Commission for landscape changes and an ATM, after meeting with neighbors in the area to address a nearby residential area from the property. The credit union agreed to locate trees in different areas to counter neighborhood concerns.
Commissioners were concerned about the proposed ATM relocation and redesign, which a bank representative said was due in part to compliance with the Americans With Disabilities Act. While several members of the panel said the proposal wasn't perfect, they acknowledged the steps the credit union had taken to work with area residents, and passed the proposal, with Commissioner Cynthia Kramer dissenting (Commissioner Michael Barton was absent).
The decision now moves to Creve Coeur City Council next week.
The Commission also gave final approval to a plan to allow for an outdoor deck and lighting changes to an office building at 211 N. Lindbergh Boulevard. The request said the building's owner hoped "to create visual interest along Lindbergh Blvd." for the property.
William Gilbert, the property's owner, told the board that the building has been 50 percent vacant for a year and a half.
Public comment at the meeting addressed lingering questions over the just-opened Walgreens on Olive Boulevard and the related Graeser Rd./Dautel Lane project. We'll have more on that this afternoon on Patch.
