**Editor's Note: The Planning and Zoning Commission meeting was canceled Thursday night because the commission lacked a quorum.
To legally conduct a meeting and take action on agenda items, the commission must have six of nine members present. Andy Lee, Ann Peters and Bill Tillotson were previously excused after informing the chair, Doug Wheeler, before Thursday that they would be absent. Ray Puri originally planned on attending the meeting, but needed to attend to a medical emergency and was unable to make the meeting.
Wheeler called the situation "unfortunate."
The public hearings on the agenda will be pushed back to the July 5 meeting.
COLUMBIA — The Planning and Zoning Commission will hold public hearings for the rezoning of the old Peppers Nightclub property and the Odle brothers' property on Locust Street at its meeting Thursday night.
- Karon Rowe, who owns the property that was previously Peppers Nightclub, is requesting the property be annexed and rezoned from County C-G, general business, and R-S, single-family residential, to C-P, planned commercial zoning. In the agenda report, city staff recommended that certain kinds of businesses be eliminated from the possible uses of the property, such as bars, schools and nightclubs. Before anything else can be developed, the city sewer system has to be connected to the property at the expense of the owner.
Rowe requested the rezoning of her property to be tabled at the previous commission meeting on June 7.
- The commission is also reviewing a development plan sent by the Odle brothers to the city earlier in June. The Odle brothers, through the development firm 10th and Locust LLC, are seeking approval for the development plan concerning their property at 1110 through 1116 Locust St. The property was rezoned from R-3, residential, to C-P, planned commercial zoning, at the City Council meeting on March 5. The Odles' plan is to build a mixed-use development of apartments and possibly retail or restaurants on the first level.
- The commission will also consider rezoning property belonging to Sara Maguire LeMone Trust from C-3, general business, to C-P, planned commercial zoning. The 2.41-acre property is located at 1714 Commerce Court.
The Planning and Zoning Commission meeting will be at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Daniel Boone City Building, 701 E. Broadway.
Supervising editor is Dan Burley.
