The Creve Coeur Planning and Zoning Commission meets Monday at 7 p.m.
The city of Creve Coeur is getting ready for a discussion about how best to handle the use and regulation of food trucks. While city officials have pointed to concerns about not wanting to undercut brick and mortar restaurants in the city, food trucks have been present in Creve Coeur in recent years. Read: Food Trucks: A Fair Fight In Creve Coeur? Some businesses have been critical of the city's approach thus far in allowing some areas like CityPlace to bring them in to cater to employees, while denying others, like CenterCo Office Suites, which sought to use them as a draw to bring traffic to the building. In a memo prepared for Monday's Creve Coeur Planning and Zoning Commission meeting, Theresa Bradshaw, Public Information Officer and …

Creve Coeur City council members are also scheduled to vote Monday on Post II Sports Bar & Grill's proposal for the former Growler's Pub space.
Creve Coeur's City Council and Planning and Zoning Commission will sit down for a joint work session Monday night as the community discussion about a pair of important planning topics picks up steam. The much-discussed need to revisit and potentially update the city's Comprehensive Plan will be one area that comes up. The Plan was first adopted in 2002 and was seen as a 20-years out guide for evaluating how development projects fit into the bigger picture of the city's needs and community desires. The plan was cited as being out of date by Delmar Gardens in the company's recent failed bid to build a residential and assisted living complex on Ladue Road. But even those on the Planning and Zoning Commission who supported the project conceded…

A text amendment to city zoning regulations related to a proposed Chick-fil-A is the subject of a petition campaign.
Creve Coeur's Planning and Zoning Commission will hold a public hearing Monday night to consider feedback as part of a developer's request to change city codes to lower the acreage threshold for fast food restaurants in the city. The change, in the form of a text amendment, would allow drive thru restaurants on not less than one acre of land, and a distance of not less than a half mile. Current code calls for three acres of property, with no mention of a restaurant's distance from other restaurants. The developer requesting the change has a proposal for a Chick-fil-A restaurant and a bank to be located on 1.9 acres at the former Walgreens property on Olive Boulevard at Graeser and Dautel. Debbie Cole has lived nearby on Graeser Acres for …

The Creve Coeur segment of Lindbergh Boulevard has a dangerous history, but improvements are still on the horizon.
The longest road in the St. Louis area, Lindbergh Boulevard runs roughly 30 miles through north, central and south county, touching nine of our Patch sites. On this anniversary of namesake Charles Lindbergh's death, we wanted to take a look at this road from our nine different perspectives. Each Patch editor has a different take on how Lindbergh touches that community. Drive along with us through our Lindbergh Links — and we hope you'll add your own observations along the way. Approaching the 37th anniversary of aviator Charles A. Lindbergh’s death on Aug. 26, Creve Coeur’s “commercial corridor” that shares its namesake with the Spirit of St. Louis pilot has its own noteworthy history and future. Lindbergh Boulevard (Highway 67) was …

Residents met Thursday night with representatives for the restaurant and property owner for proposed site.
Now that Walgreens has vacated it's former home on Olive Boulevard in Creve Coeur for the new location which opened May 13, public attention is turning to what will happen to the old property, along with a still-vacant lot immediately across Dautel Lane from the current Walgreens. In reality, the work on figuring that out has been ongoing for years, as city leaders, developers and residents have had their own thoughts about what could, would or should go in that space. The process took a public step forward Thursday night. A representative for the property owner and neighboring residents met in the chapel of the Church of The Open Word with a representative of Chick-fil-A restaurants to look at a site plan to locate the fast food …

The Olive Blvd. proposal will be reviewed by Creve Coeur's Planning and Zoning Commission later this month.
On June 20, Creve Coeur's Planning and Zoning Commission members will hear about a proposal to rezone a patch of land on the city's western border with Chesterfield for retail development. The plan would use a minimum of five acres of land in the now-defunct Village du Lac residential area at 13150 Olive Boulevard for 10,000 square feet of retail purposes. Blueprints on file with the city indicate a footprint on the site fit for a bank and a single story restaurant. City planners have not received any indications as to which tenants might occupy the property. Chesterfield-based Stock and Associates Consulting Engineers, Inc., are working on behalf of Orsen Properties LLC, on the project. Numerous calls seeking comment from Stock and …

Walgreens opened its doors last month, but residents are still wondering about pedestrian safety.
The new Walgreens location on Olive Boulevard has been open for just a few days short of a month at the redesigned Olive intersection with Graeser Rd. and Dautel Lane, but work on the entire project won't be completed for a few more weeks. Steve Heitz, from Pace Properties and also the Chair and Executive Director of the Transportation Development District which governs the overall project, said crews have now finished the sidewalks and are still working mostly at night, on issues like a median, and eventually crosswalk striping along with a functional pedestrian traffic light system. At Monday night's Creve Coeur Planning and Zoning Commission meeting, members of the public, including another TDD Board member, spoke of concerns they have …
