The project by DESCO to develop the Colonial MarketPlace at Gay Avenue and Ladue Road at the city limits with Clayton is inching along.
Officials of DESCO will appear before the Ladue City Council on Monday September 17, 4 p.m. to request a special use permit to allow joint parking at the MarketPlace at 8611 Ladue Road. The Zoning & Planning board recommended approval at their last meeting.
At the same time, Cini Italian Restaurant is requesting a special use permit for liquor by the drink including Sunday sales and outdoor dining. They will be one of two restaurants planned for the development.
At the same meeting, officials of MICDS are requesting an amendment to their special use permit for the relocation of a baseball scoreboard on their newly-renovated field.
On Monday, the aldermen will deal with establishing the rate of taxes to be levied and collected to support the operating budget for the fiscal period January 1, 2012 through December 31, 2012. The aldermen will also consider an ordinance restricting the speed limit on Clayton Road to insure more safety in the area of the Ladue Middle School at Clayton and Conway roads.
