QUINCY — Plans for a beer garden at a tavern at Seventh and Payson Avenue and a small subdivision near Bonansinga Drive and Morton Drive won the endorsement of the Quincy Plan Commission on Tuesday night.

Leroy’s Hideout at 625 Payson Ave., has been a tavern operating under a special permit since 1991. It previously had an apartment on the second floor.

Tonia McKiernan was the petitioner seeking to add a 16-foot, by 27-foot beer garden onto the south side of the building. Staff from the Department of Planning and Development recommended approval.

Donald Grimm also saw his request for a small tract subdivision win support from the Plan Commission.

Grimm hopes to create a 0.75-acre subdivision just north of Morton Drive and northwest of Bluff Estates Subdivision. Although the city’s zoning ordinance requires lots of one acre, the petitioner said he was told by the Adams County Health Department that the lot was big enough to handle a residential septic field.

Commission members also discussed zoning changes for signs, antennas and sidewalks.

All items discussed by the commission will go to the Quincy City Council for final approval.
