January 02, 2013 - A public hearing on a request for a conditional-use permit to operate a library on the former Paraclete Fathers property at 13270 Maple Drive scheduled to be conducted next week by the Sunset Hills Board of Aldermen now will take place in February.
The board will meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 12, at City Hall, 3939 S. Lindbergh Blvd.
The city's Planning and Zoning Commission voted 5-3 in October to recommend denial of the request for a conditional-use permit, or CUP, by Alwal B. Moore to operate a library at the 10-acre site originally owned by Joseph "Papa Joe" Griesedieck.
But commission member Nancy Goldkuhl, who voted in favor of recommending the CUP be denied, sent an email to city officials the day after the meeting that stated, "My vote should have been against the recommendation and for permitting the use permit. I am against denying this request."
Had Goldkuhl voted in favor, the commission would have deadlocked 4-4 on the motion because two members were absent.
Under the city's code of ordinances, the commission would have had to reconsider the deadlock because it was required to deliver a recommendation — for or against — to the Board of Aldermen within a required 90-day time frame.
During a Planning and Zoning Commission public hearing in October, roughly 13 residents expressed their opposition to the proposal, while two residents, including Ward 1 Alderman Dee Baebler, said they supported Moore's plan.
Editor's note: This story was updated at 4:15 p.m. Jan. 4 to note the public hearing has been postponed until Feb. 12.
