QUINCY -- Hearings about a convenience store near 18th and Harrison, a pair of residential subdivisions adjoining Valley of Peace Cemetery on North 30th and a review of the Quincy Next Strategic Plan are scheduled Tuesday.
The Quincy Plan Commission will meet at 7 p.m. in City Hall. Commissioners will hear a request by Robert Hintz to allow operation of a convenience store and sale of package liquor at 1705 Harrison.
A Mini Mart convenience store operated at that site for years, but closed more than six months ago. When the current owner sought to reopen, staff at the Department of Planning and Development could not find that the store had been registered as a non-confirming use.
The pastor and board president of the Hope Lutheran Church have signed a letter agreeing to allow a liquor sales license within 500 feet of the church.
Valley of Peace Cemetery Association also is seeking permission to subdivide property along North 30th, which is west of Laurence Road. The 4.8-acre property would be subdivided into three lots with the cemetery in the center. Tracts of 1.6 and 1.46 acres would be used for residential development.
Commission members also will review the strategic plan that has been put together by a large group of local stakeholders and Development Strategies of St. Louis.
All Plan Commission recommendations will go to the Quincy City Council for final approval.
