Mr. Trejo referred to his report dated May 15, 2000, a copy of which is hereto attached
and a part of these minutes, and stated that the location of the proposed retail space is south of

HUNTERS POND ADDITION
Mr. Mel Kosanchick, Volz Engineering, represented Johnson Development Company in
a request for approval of a Final Subdivision Plat and Subdivision Improvement Plans for
Hunters Pond Addition, 308 Mosley Road.
Mr. Kosanchick stated that they fully agree with the Staff comments and
recommendations. The proposal is for a four lot subdivision, which he stated are all in
compliance in terms of acreage, setbacks, and size.
Ms. Schupp questioned the width of Lot 2 and Mr. Kosanchick responded by stating all
the lots exceed the minimum requirement of 150 feet. Mr. Meyer asked for clarification of the
size of Lot 1 and Mr. Kosanchick stated that Lot 1 is 1. 12 acres. Mr. Trejo referred to the
concerns expressed at the last meeting by Mr. McLaughlin regarding landscaping along his
property line east of the subject parcel. He stated that Mr. Johnson has agreed to meet with Mr.
McLaughlin and discuss those issues. Mrs. Schupp remembered that a third of the existing trees
would be kept intact in the back of those lots. Mr. Kosanchick agreed, stating it will exceed the
City requirements as they have gone to great lengths to preserve as many trees as possible. Ms.
Bryant asked the developer to keep the equipment off the tree roots, and Mr. Kosanchick assured
her that the trees are a key to the development.
Mr. Griege made a motion to recommend approval of the Final Subdivision Plat,
subject to the eight items in Mr. Trejo' s letter dated May 15, 2000. Said motion was seconded by
Mr. Kaplan and unanimously carried.
Mr. Bangert made a motion, seconded by Mr. Kaplan, to approve the Subdivision
Improvement Plans, subject to the three items in Mr. Trejo' s report dated May 15, 2000.
Mrs. Schupp questioned the status of the escrow account for the placement of the
sidewalk along Mosley Road, Mr. Trejo replied that before construction begins, the cost of a
sidewalk will be determined, and that amount will then be contributed to the City by the
Applicant. Mr. Kosanchick agreed to an escrow.
Mrs. Schupp moved to amend the motion to include the requirement for a sidewalk
escrow. Said motion was seconded by Mr. Bangert and unanimously carried.
Chairman Meyer called for the vote on the main motion, as amended, which
unanimously carried.
This item will go before City Council on June 12, 2000.
D.
HBE BUILDING
Ms. Carrie Baldock, Voice Stream Wireless, requested approval of a Conditional Use
Permit and Site Development Plan to place roof mounted
communication equipment on the HBE
Building located at 11330 Olive Boulevard.
Ms. Baldock referred to Mr. Trejo' s report dated May 15, 2000, a copy of which is
hereto attached and a part of these minutes, and informed the Commission that there are
3-

currently two outstanding issues. The first issue pertains to the co- location requirement, and Ms.
Baldock stated they were awaiting responses from Ameritech and Southwestern Bell. The
second issue is the 150 ft. setback requirement from any residential structure, and Ms. Baldock
referred to a map showing that the property is more than 150 feet from the adjoining property.
Mr. Trejo concurred.
Ms. Baldock presented a photograph with antennas on the front of the building, and
explained that the proposed antennas will be located on the two sides in the back and will be
painted a color to match the building.
Mr. Trejo, informed the commission that the applicant has submitted a letter to the City
requesting co- location on the communication tower that is located at the golf course. He
anticipates that the City will be denying access to that location for reasons of not wanting to
extend the height any further than the existing height, which is located within the 1, 500 ft. radius.
He also stated that the applicant is working to provide a letter from HBE allowing additional
carriers to co- locate on the site, which must be submitted before the scheduled Public Hearing on
June 26, 2000.
Ms. Bryant made a motion to recommend approval of the Conditional Use Permit,
subject to the five conditions outlined in Mr. Trejo' s memo dated May 15, 2000. Said motion
was seconded by Mr. Griege and unanimously carried.
Mr. Griege made a motion to recommend approval of the Site Development Plan,

Mr. Kaplan and unanimously carried. The Public Hearing is scheduled for June 26, 2000.
E.
DRURY INN
Mr. Thomas E. Cummings, Nextel Communications, requested approval to place roof -
mounted communication equipment on the Drury Inn building located at 11980 Olive Boulevard.
After a brief summary, Mr. Cummings pointed out that the 39 ft. Ameritech tower was
structurally incapable of co- location and, due to the close proximity of the Drury Inn, they were
unable to locate their communication equipment on the Compact Building due to technical
reasons.
Mr. Cummings stated one reason for wanting to locate at the proposed site is to cover
the 270 and Olive Intersection and to offload traffic from their main sites, one at Olive and
Lindbergh and the other near Creve Coeur Mill Road. He presented some photo simulations
showing what the subject property will look like and pointed out the location of the antennas,
which will be painted to match the existing mansard roof. Mr. Cummings was aware that he
needed to document the proximity to residential buildings, but had not been able to schedule a
surveying crew to provide a signed and sealed drawing verifying that the location is greater than
the required 150 feet from the nearest corner of the Drury Building to the nearest residential
structure. He stated that he would be able to supply the City with this drawing before the Public
Hearing.
As noted in the Staff report, all equipment will be located in the equipment shelter. He
pointed out that there is a screen wall at this location which is in excess of 12 feet high, behind
4-

which the communication equipment will be located. The equipment shelter is approximately 10
feet tall and will be located near the center of the building, which will make it invisible from
street level. Mr. Cummings stated there would be no signs or lighting except for a safety light on
the doorstep of the building.
Mr. Cummings was aware of the ongoing dialogue between Staff and Druco
Development regarding lighting and stated they have expressed to him their willingness to
cooperate with the City once the information has been analyzed. Mr. Trejo stated they know the
lighting issue for Drury Inn and the violations in terms of how the Code is interpreted but would
like to be able to address exactly what needs to be changed or accommodated. The owner is also
waiting for the quantification of the violation so that all parties can get together and solve this
issue. Mr. Cummings beseeched the Commission to pursue Option 3, so they can get the parties
together while this Conditional Use Permit process moves forward.
Ms. Bryant explained to the Applicant that a letter dated February 19, 1997, signed by
Susan Murphy, the Planning and Zoning Chairman, addressed to Terry Barnes at Druco,
contained the following verbiage: " By unanimous vote, the P & Z Commission disapproved the
lighting request, in order to maintain consistency in the application and installation of lighting
standards in the City, and some members expressed the opinion that a brightly illuminated
building of that height would essentially serve as signage." Ms. Bryant stated no one seems to
know how the requested lighting was installed when it was clearly disapproved. Mr. Cummings
responded by saying that until they received a letter in March of this year, they were unaware of
any violation. Ms. Bryant pointed out that Drury Inn somehow overlooked the letter they
received in February of 1997, which clearly denied their request for 48 ft. light standards. As a
point of clarification, Ms. Bryant pointed out that Drury was clearly denied brightly
illuminating their building to the point that it would serve as signage; she did not think they
put up 48 ft. light standards.
Mrs. Schupp pointed out Ordinance Number 1830 does not allow communication
equipment within 1, 500 feet of another tower and questioned the setting of a precedent if this
application is approved. Mr. Trejo stated this would set the standard in terms of what is
permitted as co- location and what is permitted from a technical point of view. He was desirous
of more flexibility in a commercial district and pointed out that communication equipment is
similar to mechanical equipment, which is not screened on roof levels. Mr. Trejo favored more
stringent standards for a residential district.
A brief discussion followed.
Mrs. Schupp questioned the possibility of the applicant going before the Board of
Adjustment for a variance based upon the hardship versus ruining the integrity of the ordinance.
Mr. Trejo directed attention to page 5 of his report dated May 15, 2000, a copy of which is hereto
attached and a part of these Minutes, and read from paragraph 2( a), which states that if roof -top
communication is located within 1, 500 feet from one another, the applicant has to provided
information to the satisfaction of the City Council that relocation elsewhere would not be
feasible.
Mr. Bangert asked the City Attorney if taking into account the physical constraint
damages the spirit and intent of the ordinance. Mr. McCarter did not feel it would, but pointed
out that the burden is on the Applicant to prove to the Commission and City Council that they
cannot co- locate on another tower.

Mr. Trejo informed the Commission that the City is scheduled to meet with the
consultant next week so they will know what needs to be addressed, beyond just shutting off the
lights projecting up to the building. In reality, Mr. Trejo felt 30 days should be sufficient time to
resolve the issue.
Ms. Bryant made a motion to defer the Conditional Use Permit to the P & Z meeting of
June 19, 2000 to give the City a chance to work through the Drury Inn lighting issue. Said
motion was seconded by Mrs. Schupp with the vote upon said motion as follows, to -wit:

TEXT AMENDMENT - ' PC' DISTRICT
Mr. Douglas M. Baron, Lowenhaupt & Chasnoff, represented Charles Deutsch &
Company in a request for approval of a text amendment to the 'PC' Planned Community District,
Section 26- 41. 5( a), which would reduce the minimum district size of the ' PC' District from 40
acres to 15 acres.
Mr. Baron stated the amendment will lower the current minimum tract size in the' PC'
District from 40 acres to 15 acres, plus it would also eliminate the requirement that the tract is to
be developed by a single owner or developer. He presented a brief history of the ' PC' District,
which was created in 1969 to accommodate the 66 acre Westgate Development. Mr. Baron felt
it would be wise to reduce the size tract required in the ' PC' District in order to adopt a more
flexible and modern standard of a planned development of mixed uses; otherwise, he felt that
the' PC' District would never be used and the City would lose a valuable planning tools. He
compared the mixed -use developments of Chesterfield and St. Louis County, which he stated
have no minimum acreage requirements, with Maryland Heights requiring a 7. 5 acre minimum.
Mr. Baron pointed out that none of the cities have a requirement of a single owner.

Mr. Baron called on Charles Deutsch to briefly describe a project he plans to propose
for a sophisticated state -of t-he -art senior living facility. Mr. Kaplan felt the project did not need
to be explained when the actual request is for a text amendment. All Commission members
concurred. Chairman Meyer explained that the decision to approve the text amendment would
take place regardless of any proposed project; otherwise, it would appear that the text
amendment is being approved for a particular development. If the text amendment is approved,
Chairman Meyer stated it would be strictly for the betterment of the community.
Mrs. Schupp expressed concern regarding the request that the 15 acre tract would not
have to be developed by a single owner and presented examples of how that might be misused.
Mr. Baron pointed out that the property zoned' PC' would be subject to a Trust Indenture, with a
coordinated Site Development Plan.
Ms. Bryant asked for the definition of a " single owner." Mr. McCarter responded that
he thought a partnership of multiple individuals could be considered a single owner if it is legally
Ms. Bryant asked if 15 acres is reasonable. Mr.
incorporated in compliance with Missouri law.
Trejo replied there is no ideal standard, that Staff had recommended 15 acres based on what was
submitted by the Applicant. He felt the minimum size should be no less than five acres.
Mrs. Jill Kassander, 12121 Royal Valley Drive, asked the Commission to disapprove
the proposed text amendment. She felt reducing the acreage requirement to 15 acres would put
every neighborhood in Creve Coeur at risk, since there are many areas where a developer can
assemble 15 acres and crowd single family residential areas with a planned community district.
Mrs. Kassander expressed concern with the traffic that would be generated by a large
development and stated that it would be a shame if a development of the magnitude proposed by
Mr. Deutsch is allowed to go forward before the Comprehensive Land Use Plan is completed.
Mr. David Kassander, 12121 Royal Valley Drive, expressed concern with the impact
and precedent that a change of zoning will have on the City. He did not feel the City has had
enough time to evaluate the significant impact and precedent setting capability that would result
with the requested text amendment.
Ms. Bryant asked if sufficient notification was given, and Mr. Trejo responded that a
text amendment is citywide and does not require individual notification outside of the two
newspapers. When an actual location is identified, all procedures will be followed in notifying
all residents within 300 feet. Ms. Bryant stated she shared Mrs. Kassander' s concern with having
a land use plan in place, but felt a moratorium was not an option for the City.
Mrs. Schupp made a motion to recommend approval of the text amendment to change
the minimum district size from 40 acres to 15 acres, subject to not eliminating the reference of a
single owner or developer. Said motion was seconded by Ms. Bryant with the vote upon said
motion as follows, to -wit:
Mr. Griege - abstain

Upon a request by the Applicant, Mr. Kaplan moved approval to defer action on the
Final Subdivision Plat and Subdivision Improvement Plans to the meeting of June 19, 2000.

SUMMIT LOFTS
Mr. Robert Saur, President of Conrad Properties, requested a Revised Site Development
Plan for Summit Lofts, 652 Emerson Road. He presented a brief summary of the project to date,
with construction scheduled to begin mid to late summer.
Mr. Saur stated the request is for an amendment to the plan that was adopted by City
Council on April 12, 1999. He had a list of reasons for the amendment, citing excessive costs for
what they proposed, which caused them to revisit the Site Development Plan and salvage the
good urban planning which changed the building form. The benefits of the revised plan are that
the buildings are more easily phased than in the previous plan, which also allows response to a
changing market over a period of time. Focus groups were conducted, and larger units were
found to be desirous. The selling price ranges between $ 300, 000 and $ 500,000.
Mr. Saur presented the amended plan and compared it to the previous plan, which was
known as the Gardens of Creve Coeur. He pointed out that the original plan had 126 units,
compared to 88 currently proposed; the original units were approximately 1, 700 sq. ft. and are
currently 1, 825 sq. ft.; the building height has been reduced from 6 -7 stories to 4 stories; less
parking is required; and the floor area ratio was reduced from 1. 25 to . 89, with the site coverage
slightly less than originally proposed. Garages are contained under the buildings themselves
with one on the east side of the site and one on the west side of the site. Mr. Saur acknowledged
that visitor parking would be provided with surface parking in front of both buildings along
Emerson Road and Decker Lane, and described their plans for a visual barrier to screen the cars.
The center of the site will house a clubhouse, pool and landscaped courtyard.
He presented an
artist rendering of the loft interior and the courtyard, stating the buildings will be constructed of
composition brick and precaste limestone, with 2 -sided elevations.
Mrs. Schupp expressed disappointment to the change in the height of the buildings.
Ms. Bryant referred to Condition 1 of the suggested requirements of approval listed in Mr.
Trejo's report dated May 15, a copy of which is hereto attached and a part of these minutes. Mr.
Saur felt the use of landscaping between the sidewalk and the surface parking area would
provide a softer detail than a wall. Mr. Trejo stated his goal was to require something to hide the
parking and vehicle lights and felt Mr. Saur had provided sufficient details in response to the
suggested condition.

Ms. Bryant made a motion to approve the Revised Site Development Plan, subject to
the eight items in Mr. Trejo' s memorandum dated May 15, 2000. Said motion was seconded by
Mr. Griege and unanimously carried.
This item will go before City Council on June 12, 2000.
I.
CITYPLACE
Mr. Thomas B. Roof, TR,i Architekts, represented The Koman Group in a request to
amend the Site Concept Plan for the CityPlace development located at CityPlace Drive and Olive
Boulevard.
This request is for approval to remove the parcel that is northwest of the Ballas
Extension Drive, which consists of about 11. 1 acres. The site currently contains the City's new
Public Work facility, the Creve Coeur Country Club in the southwest corner of the property, and
the approved site for the Amerisuites Hotel, which has since been abandoned. Their intent is to
propose a separate development from CityPlace, which will help them deal with the different
components as they move through the approval process. Mr. Roof stated they are asking to
revise the parking requirements for the original CityPlace development to meet the City's new
parking ratios that are now before the City Council for approval. He explained that the reduction
of the parking ratios would also involve the elimination of future construction of an additional
level on the east deck; it would include the addition of a potential restaurant parcel located south
of the east deck behind the Amoco Station and some minor modifications to the retail to allow
the Metro Imaging tenant that exists in CityPlace Retail to expand by 400 square feet. Trash
enclosures will be relocated behind the new CityPlace III Building.
Mr. Roof presented a booklet for the Commission' s review, which contained many
photographs taken over a period of time at various hours of the day to give the members an idea
of the non -utilization of parking currently within the development. He explained that the type of
tenant in CityPlace uses a higher square footage to employee ratio and, therefore, the parking
ratios are not as dense, leaving an over abundance of parking. A brief discussion followed.
Mr. Roof explained that there are individual lots within CityPlace, which are managed
by separate partnerships that The Koman Group manages. No Trust Indentures exist for the
CityPlace development. Mr. Trejo explained that the CityPlace site, which is considered a single
entity, is approved under a Site Concept Plan, and Trust Indentures are not required under the
CB' District, which, as an example, is not as restrictive as the Westgate development in the ' PC'
District.
Ms. Bryant made a motion, seconded by Mrs. Schupp, to approve the amendment to
the Site Concept Plan, subject to one item outlined in Mr. Trejo's memorandum dated May 15,
2000.
Mr. Kaplan asked if the recommendation for an access easement along the southeast
corner of the site is on the piece being removed or the piece remaining. Mr. Trejo replied that it
is for the original 26 acres of the CityPlace development and explained that in looking at the
future development east of the site, Staff is requesting continuing efforts of cross traffic or

eliminating the need for traffic access to Olive Boulevard or North New Ballas, to provide an
easement at the southeast corner that will lead eastward that could potentially lead to the lighted
intersection for the West Oak Shopping Center, which will provide another opportunity to get a
better grid system on the site and multiple access points throughout that area.

CITYPLACE WEST
Mr. Thomas B. Roof, TR,i Architekts, represented The Koman Group in a request for
approval of a Site Concept Plan for CityPlace West, located north of CityPlace Drive and North
New Ballas Road.
Mr. Roof stated that the design objectives in the development of the CityPlace West
campus are to attract technology companies through the creation of the mixed use development,
with the intention to retain population on campus during business hours and to enhance the
pedestrian access within both the CityPlace developments and the surrounding community.
They are hopeful to attract incubator -type technology companies to this development which will
compliment the strong technology based tenants that are in the existing CityPlace development.
Mr. Roof mentioned the many campus amenities on the CityPlace campus which will be
incorporated into CityPlace West and reinforced through the pedestrian connection. He
presented a diagram illustrating improvements to be constructed at Olive and I -270, pointing out
proposed modifications to the stop signs that exist at American Legion Drive and the Ballas
Road Extension. Mr. Roof described the strong streetscape element on the cross drive and
fronting along the Ballas Road Extension.
Mr. Roof stated he was taking advantage of the topography by tucking the parking
garage down and into the hill so that it does not obstruct views of the office building and is not
visible from the residential component. He presented sections illustrating streetscape and
landscape elements, along with artist renderings showing the entry element, the water feature,
and proposed restaurant.
Mr. Kaplan inquired about parallel parking on the north side of the condominiums and
Mr. Roof responded by saying that it was to provide visitor parking for the condominiums as
well as the office buildings during the day, in an attempt to reinforce the more urban streetscape
element that does feature parallel parking. Mr. Roof stated that the Director of Public Works
had requested an increase in the greenspace setback between the condominiums and the property
line to the south, which is currently 10 feet. He explained that if the setback is increased, the
parallel parking would potentially be eliminated. Mr. Trejo responded to Mr. Kaplan by stating
that any project that requires a Site Concept Plan or Site Development Plan approval has to
provide off street
parking. He pointed out that this accessway is not public and parking along
this road is allowed. Mr. Trejo stated he was under the belief that the roadway was to remain
private, such as the loop road at Rue De La Banque East. Ms. Bryant pointed out that a classic
urban streetscape contains a strip of trees between the sidewalk and the street, pointing out that
the strip of trees was not on the proposed plan. Mr. Trejo stated that the Site Concept Plan can
be amended or the Site Development Plan required to reflect the proper streetscape. Mr. Roof
explained that when parallel parking exists, concrete is adjacent to the street so the passenger

does not step in grass when getting out of the car. He referred to the City of Clayton, pointing
out that concrete exists entirely from the street to the building with trees planted in tree wells.
The idea is for the cars to provide the buffer between the vehicular traffic and pedestrian traffic.
Mr. Roof stated they were at a very conceptual level and would be happy to work with Staff.
Ms. Bryant asked if the private drive aisle could be closed to the public, and Mr. Roof
responded by saying it would not be practical to close the road because of the need to provide
access for their tenants and residents. Mr. Trejo pointed out that a Public Access Easement could
be required, which would prevent obstruction of access to the general public.
Mr. Hearnes stated the road, whether public or private, north of the parking lot to the
Public Works facility must be open, and Mr. McCarter suggested a condition of approval could
be applied to ensure public access. Mr. Roof referred to Mr. Bhasin's recommendation to delete
access to parking at the condominiums off of Rue De La Banque and bringing the drive south of
the buildings. Mr. Roof stated they did not think introducing pavement for vehicular access
between two sets of residential buildings would be to anyone' s best interest, but he did agree to
delete the curb cuts and restrict access internally. A brief discussion followed. Mr. Koman was
in favor of retaining the curb cuts on the west side of the condominiums.
Mrs. Schupp expressed concern with the pedestrian crossing from CityPlace to
CityPlace West, especially across North New Ballas. She inquired as to whether the pedestrian
bridge should be incorporated in this area. Mr. Roof agreed that the sight lines are definitely
limited, stating they are proposing an on -grade intersection where the signals can control the
stopping of vehicles in all four directions to allow pedestrians to cross. He pointed out that the
possibility of an overhead connection at the south end of the property had been discussed. Mr.
Roof felt that an elevated structure would not be readily used and was amenable to some type of
crossing signal. Mrs. Schupp requested other alternatives to get the pedestrians safely across the
street in this area. Mr. Trejo felt the elimination of one curb cut and the availability of sufficient
vision corners could be one alternative to be worked out with the Applicant. He was confident
both departments could agree upon an alternative to meet the design standard and reflected safety
issues.
Mr. Roof stated that their goal is to be under construction with Building Four in August
Some phasing with the Country Club property must
take place, which will force the development to be phased, beginning with Building Four. The
Club needs about twelve months to wind down their banquet facility commitments. With regard
2000 with a completion date of April 2001.
to the completion of the West Campus, Mr. Koman stated a 36 -month period is reasonable. Mr.
Trejo responded to Mr. Griege' s question by stating that the scheduled construction of the I -270/
Olive Interchange was to commence this fall, but property acquisitions have not been completed.
That project is estimated to take 18 months from start to finish.
Stephen Wolff, Trustee of Courtland Hall Condominium Association, felt the proposed
site plan was great, but had some concerns, one of which was the 10 ft. setback from their
property line. He requested that the structure be built no closer than 30 ft. from the property line
separating CityPlace from Courtland Hall. Screening was another concern, and Mr. Wolff
requested that the caliper and height of the trees be such that over a relative short period of time
they will grow to a height so that each property is less visible to the other. Mr. Wolffs third
concern was the potential disruption and noise that occurs as a result of the construction phase,
0

and he felt construction should begin no earlier than 8: 30 a. m.
Mr. Koman responded by saying
they would make every effort possible to increase the 10 ft. setback and expressed a willingness
to work with Mr. Wolff on a landscaping plan that is adequate for both parties. Mr. Koman
stated that they would work within any reasonable guidelines to prevent union overtime wages.
Mr. Griege made a motion, seconded by Mr. Kaplan, to recommend approval of the Site
Concept Plan, subject to the one condition in Mr. Trejo' s report dated May 15, 2000.
Mrs. Schupp offered an amendment to add a pedestrian access across North New
Ballas, such as a bridge that goes over the street so that pedestrians would not have to cross the
street; the screening issue to be worked out between the Koman Group and Courtland Hall; and
both parties to work together to establish a reasonable time for construction to begin in the
mornings.
Mr. Trejo pointed out several important comments in Mr. Bhasin' s letter to ensure that
there is 24 hour access to the loop road of East Rue De La Banque. The other issues should be
dealt with at a Site Development Plan level, which includes more detailed items in terms of
construction.
Mrs. Schupp withdrew her previous amendment and offered another amendment to
have the developer look into the feasibility of providing a pedestrian access across North New
Ballas Road and a 24 -hour access to the Public Works area. Said amendment was seconded by
Ms. Bryant and unanimously carried.
Chairman Meyer called for the vote on the main motion, as amended, which
unanimously carried. This item will go before City Council on June 12, 2000.

CITY ATTORNEY REPORT
Mr. McCarter had no report. Mr. Griege asked him what the City was doing regarding
the CEP issue, since it is not to be reviewed by the Planning and Zoning Commission. Mr.
McCarter replied that there is a difference of view in the legal community as to whether or not
Chapter 89 requires Planning and Zoning approval of capital projects and, if so, to what extent.
Traditionally, Planning and Zoning has not reviewed, either in this City or any other City, the
capital projects that City Councils approve, and the City Council has decided, with his
concurrence, to continue to follow the same process it has followed for the last thirty years,
which is not to have Planning and Zoning review those capital projects because it includes such
things as street overlays, repairs to the street, and things of that nature. Mr. Griege wanted to
know if the City was going to find out the way the law is suppose to be interpreted, and the City

Attorney replied that he is pursuing that for the City Council, but there is no definitive answer.
Mr. McCarter stated he has presented it to the Missouri Municipal Attorneys Association for an
informal opinion. Until the court makes a decision, there is no answer by which the City will be
bound. Mr. Griege asked the definition of a Charter City. Mr. McCarter referred to Chapter 89,
Section 3 - 310 through 480, pointing out the confusion as to whether or not charter cities are
bound by the provision in Chapter 89. Basically, the rule is that the Charter City has all power
that a city may exercise under law except those specifically prohibited by Missouri Constitution
or Missouri Statute. Mr. Griege asked for the provisions of the Charter, and Mr. McCarter stated
that the provisions of our Charter simply say that the City, may by ordinance, establish a
Planning and Zoning Commission and establish such powers and duties of the Planning and
Zoning Commission as the City Council may determine by ordinance. Mr. Kaplan felt it would
be beneficial if all the Commission members received a copy of the duties of the Planning and
Zoning Commission that are set forth in the Charter. Mr. McCarter replied that those duties are
not in the Charter and referred to Section 26 -110. 5 of the Zoning Code.

Staff Concerns: CityPlace
The CityPlace development, between North New Ballas Road and Olive Boulevard, has developed in accordance to
the original Site Concept Plan adopted by the City. The area has slowly developed into an identifiable node within
the city. The architecture, signage and landscaping have been carefully developed and have maintained and overall
theme and identity to the site. The final stages of the plan, including the walking trail and fountain in front of the
CityPlace III office tower will provide additional enhancements to the site.
The developer has aggressively tried to create a self contained
office environment providing high quality office
space
with compatible
amenities
throughout the
campus.
The goal has been to create a lively pedestrian
environment in which tenants of the CityPlace development can do a wide array of business and personal related
transactions on the campus grounds without having to drive from place to place. A high quality of tenants and
service -oriented establishments have been pursued and maintained. This has allowed the degree of intensity or use
of the office buildings to be lower than comparable developments. These tenants generally provide a higher average
of square feet per occupant than neighboring developments such as WestPort and RiverPort. In addition, the
service- oriented establishments are specialty in nature servicing a more limited and affluent customer base, as
opposed to box -type developments servicing a wider spectrum of customers.
The mix use nature of the campus, average square foot per occupant in the office developments and the limited
customer types of service -oriented establishments have contributed to maintain a lower degree of intensity of the
campus than what could be permitted by Code. What the developer of the campus has aggressively done, is limited
the degree of impact that this development has contributed to Olive Boulevard. Note, that based on the parking
requirements of the existing Zoning Code, this site can potentially contribute an additional 2, 743 vehicles at anyone
time onto Olive Boulevard. The applicant has been seeking reductions in the amount of parking stalls required on
Dilbert\ COMM- DEV\ P & Z Commission \Reports \SCP- CityPlace.doc
Site Concept Plan • •

site by the City. With the revised parking requirements before the City Council, the applicant is seeking to reduce
the parking on site to 2, 180 stalls, or 80% of the initially proposed parking spaces. In addition, the floor area ratio of
the site has been maintained at 0. 533, or 53% of the permitted capacity in the CB district. With the lower far and
the higher average office space per occupant, the CityPlace development has controlled the degree of impact that it
has contributed to traffic congestion.
In addition, the CityPlace development has incorporated an effective transportation network to disperse traffic
leaving or entering the campus. With the North New Ballas Road extension, there are three possible ways to get to
Olive Boulevard, through North New Ballas Road, through CityPlace Drive and through Craig Drive.
Unfortunately, with the overall volume of traffic heading on west bound Olive Boulevard to access I -270 and the
spacing and timing of traffic lights within a 1/ 4 mile of the intersection, the flow of traffic has exceeded the capacity
levels of the I- 270 /Olive Boulevard interchange, causing traffic backup and congestion.
CityPlace has also provided an internal street system within the development allowing access to neighboring sites
without entering onto Olive Boulevard or North New Ballas Road. There are access connections to Borders
Bookstore and the Court Yard Hotel, and there is also access onto the neighboring McDonald's parcel. This internal
street system provides a benefit in reducing an additional traffic burden onto Olive Boulevard.
Staff recommends that this system be preserved as shown in the amended Site Concept Plan and expanded along the
southeast comer near the Phase VI restaurant, north of McDonalds.
An access easement be provided to the
properties to the east, to allow for future coordinated access onto the CityPlace campus and CityPlace Drive when
the properties to the east redevelop. This could potentially provided an access road parallel to Olive Boulevard that
could connect to the lighted intersection on Craig Road that leads to the West Oak Shopping Center an Organized
Living parcel.
Staff Concerns:
CityPlace West
The 6. 5 acre CityPlace West development will take the mix use concept of the CityPlace development one step
further and introduce a residential element into the overall campus plan. Two, 100, 000 square foot office buildings
are proposed, one 4 -story and one 5- story. Each building will provide amenity services, including a 3, 500 square
foot restaurant and an 5, 400 square foot unknown amenity. In addition, the CityPlace West Site Concept Plan will
include 28- residential units located in two 6 -story residential towers.
The CityPlace West Site Concept Plan continues the same efforts of the developer to provide a quality development
catering to tenants seeking high -end office space. The intent is to reduce the degree of impact of traffic onto Olive
Boulevard.
The far on the site is indicated as 0. 94, with 1. 0 permitted within the CB, Core Business District. However, if the
residential component of the CityPlace West development is removed, afar of 0. 62 is maintained, comparable with
the CityPlace Master Plan. For a site of this size, excluding the residential component of this site, the development
is only being built to 2/ 3' s of its permitted capacity under the CB district. In addition, with the residential
component placed on the site, a potential reverse commute element is being added to the site and the potential for
noncommuters who may live and work on the site.
The CityPlace West Site Concept Plan also provides a similar internal street network of providing alternative access
points to lead to Olive Boulevard and Craig Road. This includes the extension and connection of CityPlace Drive to
connect to Rue de la Banque East. Also an additional cross access street connecting Rue de la Banque East with
North New Ballas Road is provided.
Several on -site amenities and pedestrian oasis are provided throughout the CityPlace West campus. This includes
decorative paved areas, fountains and water features, gathering areas and benches and a central court plaza.
A
similar pedestrian network of sidewalks circling the campus is provided. However, the pedestrian connection of the
CityPlace West campus to the CityPlace campus is limited to intersection of CityPlace Drive and North New Ballas
Road. This appears to be the only logical connection between the two campuses in which activity buildings link to
activity buildings. Additional pedestrian access south of the intersection would connect to the CityPlace Two
Parking Deck. An alternative pedestrian connection could be provided here, either at grade level or above ground
which would allow the parking structure to be utilized as convenient and accessible excess parking to the CityPlace
West development.

Staff recommends an access easement along the southeast corner of the site be provided to provide
future cross access to the properties to the east. This will allow for future coordinated access onto the
CityPlace campus and CityPlace Drive when the properties to the east redevelop, potentially providing
an access road parallel to Olive Boulevard that could connect to the lighted intersection on Craig Road
that leads to the West Oak Shopping Center an Organized Living parcel.
Should the Planning and Zoning Commission motion to approve the amendment to the adopted Site Concept Plan
for the CityPlace West development, staff recommends the following conditions:
1.
An additional pedestrian access be provided at the southeast comer of the site, leading from the
proposed cross access drive intersection with North New Ballas Road to the CityPlace Two Parking
Deck.
ACTION
The Planning and Zoning Commission will take action on two separate items, the amendment to the CityPlace Site
Concept Plan and action on the proposed CityPlace West Site Concept Plan.
Action on the amendment to the
CityPlace Site Concept Plan will be in the form of a motion of approval, approval with conditions or denial. This
item will be forwarded to the City Council for final action, with a tentative date scheduled for Monday, June 12,
2000.
Action on the proposed Site Concept Plan for the CityPlace West development will be in the form of a motion of
approval, approval with conditions or denial. This item will be forwarded to the City Council for final action, with a

Dear Mr. Meyer:
The following comments are from the review by the Public Works Engineering
Division for the Preliminary Development Plan Drawing ( PDP -1) of the City Place
Four West Campus, received in this office on May 1, 2000. These plans have been
developed for The Koman Group of One City Place, Suite 540, Creve Coeur, MO
63141 and prepared by TRI Architects.
Comments are as follows:

It is desirable to have an unrestricted access to the City equipment on the
drive, which is proposed to be provided by the
northern most proposed
developer.

All on -site storm water is to be diverted to the retention lake between City. Place
One and City Place Two ( see Amerisuites plans).
The proposed loading dock on the west side of the property that accesses Rue De
La Banque is not adequate enough to contain a tractor trailer ( 40 to 60 feet long)
without blocking the road. The pad shown is not big enough for intended use.
Footprint of complex could be shifted 15 feet to the north with no direct access to
the sublevel garage from Rue De La Banque. This will provide enough room for
a two lane road along the south side of the proposed condominium building with
rear entrance sublevel parking.
CITY CLERK
LAVERNE COLLINS
This will provide a controlled access from Rue
De La Banque to a two lane roadway to the entrance for sublevel garage parking
and one entrance for surface level parking. This approach would be safer for all
vehicular traffic.
L
Provide adequate landscape buffer along the northside of the newly proposed
road from Rue De La Banque approximately 300 feet to the east ending at the
southwest corner of the existing block retaining wall.
Install a detector loop at the proposed road where it joins the intersection at
North New Ballas extension to provide reasonable access to the extension.
It is the owner' s responsibility to comply with EPA, Army Corp. of Engineers,
MSD and DNR and other regulatory agency requirements pertaining to different
aspects of this projects.
All proposed curb cuts along the existing streets must comply with AASHTO
requirements.

RE:
Traffic Impact Study
CityPlace Four & Five
CBB Job No. 062 -00
Dear Mr. Koman:
In accordance with your request, we have prepared the following study pertaining to your
proposed CityPlace Four and Five developments. The mixed -use project would be developed on
the west side of North New Ballas Road, including the present site of the Creve Coeur Country
Club and a site previously approved for a hotel. The City of Creve Coeur recently relocated their
maintenance facilities immediately to the north of this site.
The purpose of this study was to identify the amount of traffic that would be generated by this
project, the ability of motorists to safely access the site, and the impact that these trips would
have on the adjacent roadways. Where necessary, roadway improvements were recommended to
mitigate the impact of the development.
The primary emphasis was the ability of the critical intersections along Olive Boulevard to
accommodate additional traffic. However, it is important to acknowledge that the analyses also
took into consideration the pending improvement of Olive Boulevard between Ballas Road and
Woodcrest Executive Drive, which includes the interchange with I -270.
The analysis also considered the remaining components of the CityPlace development.
Specifically, forecasts for the CityPlace Three office building, which is currently under
construction, were added to the forecasts for the current project. CityPlace Two is completed and
fully occupied, so the existing traffic volumes reflect traffic from that facility.
The site plan for the current development proposes two 100, 000 square foot office buildings
CityPlace Four and Five),
a 3, 500 square foot restaurant, 6, 000 square feet of "amenity" space
The amenity space might contain fitness rooms, meeting
and 50 residential condominium units.
rooms or other ancillary services.

Access would be provided
at two
locations:
one drive opposite the existing signalized
intersection of City Place Drive and North New Ballas Road and one drive connecting to Rue De
La Banque East. It should be noted that Rue De La Banque East also serves as the primary
access for the City' s maintenance facility. It is of further note that no new curb cuts would be
created along Olive Boulevard as a result of this development.
Rue De La Banque East has right -turn only access at its intersection with Olive Boulevard. Left turn access is available at the signalized intersections of Olive Boulevard with Rue De La
Banque West/Center Parkway and North New Ballas Road. However, there -is currently no
public connection between Rue De La Banque East and West.
The relative location of the development site ( with respect to the adjacent road system) and the
availability of multiple access routes would be advantageous in that site -generated traffic would
be dispersed between several different intersections along Olive Boulevard. These conditions
would effectively minimize the impact that the proposed development would have on any
individual location.
EXISTING TRAFFIC AND OPERATING CONDITIONS
Olive Boulevard ( Missouri Route 340) is a major east -west arterial. To the west of New Ballas
Road, Olive has three travel lanes in each direction with a center median and designated turn
lanes.
However, immediately to the east of New Ballas Road, Olive narrows to a five -lane cross -
section.
North New Ballas Road is generally a four -lane roadway with a landscaped median, though
additional turn lanes are provided at the major intersections including Olive Boulevard.
The
intersection with American Legion Drive is controlled by a four -way stop, but most other major
intersections are controlled by traffic signals.
The heavily loaded intersection of these two streets effectively acts as a " bottleneck. Conditions
along Olive Boulevard are further exacerbated by congestion at the interchange with I -270 and
the inability to effectively coordinate numerous, closely spaced traffic signals along the corridor.
As an initial step in our analysis, manual turning movement counts were collected during the
morning ( 7: 00 — 9: 00 a. m.) and afternoon ( 4: 00 — 6: 00 p. m.) peak periods at the critical
intersections near the development site:

New Ballas Road &
New Ballas Road &
City Place Drive (signalized)
American Legion Drive (all -way stop controlled)
Based on these counts, two peak hours were selected for analysis: 7: 30 to 8: 30 a.m. and 4: 30 to
5: 30 p. m. These times represent the peak hours of traffic activity on the surrounding roadways
as well as the peak hours of trip generation for the proposed uses within CityPlace. If the traffic
from the proposed development can be accommodated at these times, it can be reasoned that
adequate capacity would be available throughout the remainder of the day.
The existing peak hour turning movements are illustrated in Exhibit 1. As can be seen, Olive
Boulevard carries approximately 3, 500 and 3, 750 vehicles per hour (vph) the during the morning
and afternoon peak hours, respectively. It must be acknowledged that traffic volumes. on Olive
Boulevard ( as reflected by the counts summarized in Exhibit 1) are constrained by the existing
congestion, particularly for westbound movements in the afternoon.
North New Ballas Road carries as many as 830 vph immediately north of Olive Boulevard and
730 vph just east of City Place Drive. Field observations reveal that, with the exception of the
intersection with Olive Boulevard, motorists on North New Ballas Road experience nominal
delays.
The existing conditions at the critical intersections were analyzed using study procedures outlined
in the Highway Research Report No. 209 - " Highway Capacity Manual," published in 1997. This
manual, which is used universally by highway and traffic engineers to measure roadway capacity,
establishes six levels of traffic service: Level A ( "Most Desirable "), to Level F ( " Fully Loaded ").
Levels of traffic service are measures of traffic flow that consider such factors as speed and delay
time, traffic interruptions, safety, driving comfort, and convenience. Level C, which is normally
used for highway design, represents a roadway with volumes ranging from 70% to 80% of its
capacity. However, Level D is considered acceptable for peak period conditions in urban areas.
Table 1 presents the existing levels of service ( LOS) at each intersection. As can be seen, each
of the intersections currently has acceptable overall operating conditions with the exception of
Olive Boulevard at New Ballas Road. The overall failure of this intersection is isolated to the
morning peak period, when eastbound traffic is constrained due to a lack of adequate signal time.
This situation could be corrected with minor signal timing adjustments that were facilitated by
recent improvements to the south leg of New Ballas Road. In fact, a minor reallocation of time
8 seconds per cycle) to the eastbound movement would improve conditions on that approach
and the overall operating conditions would improve to Level D ( delay times would be reduced to
an average of 30. 8 seconds per vehicle).

Overall operating conditions were found to be acceptable during the afternoon peak period and at
the other intersections.
However, it must be acknowledged that individual traffic movements
still experience operating difficulties, particularly in the afternoon when westbound traffic is
heavily congested. For example, the capacity analyses indicate that east -west traffic has
acceptable operating conditions at the intersection of Olive Boulevard with Rue de la Banque
West, but field observations indicate that westbound traffic is heavily congested in the afternoon.

These calculations fail to reflect the constraints associated with traffic backing up from the
interchange with I -270. Field observations reveal that this " spill- back" effectively blocks traffic
on the side streets and further to the east on Olive. As a result, actual p. m. peak period operating
conditions on Olive Boulevard are worse than calculated. However, the proposed reconstruction
of the interchange will improve traffic flows along Olive Boulevard, thereby removing this
blockage. Furthermore, a fourth westbound through lane will be provided at Rue de la Banque
West,
thereby increasing the capacity of that intersection beyond that reflected by the
calculations of existing conditions.
The reconstruction of the interchange will offer additional benefits in that signal timing and
progression can be improved. Currently, the congestion of motorists turning onto or off of Olive
Boulevard is exacerbated by the prioritization of the traffic signals to serve through traffic.
Consequently, a number of side -street movements receive inadequate signal time. For example,
the southbound through movement on New Ballas Road at Olive Boulevard receives minimal
signal time during the afternoon peak hour and many motorists must wait through more than one
signal cycle before clearing the intersection.
Following the reconstruction of the interchange at I -270, it may be possible to devote additional
time to the turning movements and the side streets without significantly impeding the flows on
Olive. The new interchange will be designed with a " center- point- diamond"
configuration that
will have only one signalized intersection ( as opposed to the two existing signals).
This
reconfiguration will reduce the number of stops, provide improved spacing between the ramps
and the next signalized intersection, and allow for better coordination of the traffic signals along
Olive Boulevard.
Finally, it should be noted that the recent improvements to the south leg of New Ballas Road
provided additional intersection capacity, but the signal timing has not yet been reallocated to
maximize their benefits.
However, it is unlikely that timing changes would be implemented until
after the reconstruction of the I -270 interchange.
FORECASTED TRAFFIC GENERATION
Peak period traffic forecasts were prepared for the proposed development using information
published by the Institute of Transportation Engineers in the Trip Generation Manual. For the
purposes of this analysis, it was assumed that the restaurant would not be open for breakfast, so it
would not generate a meaningful amount of traffic during the a. m. peak hour.
Furthermore, no
traffic generation was calculated for the amenity space because it would be used entirely by
office tenants or residents. Therefore, any traffic associated with the amenity space- would be
internally generated. The forecasted trip generation estimates are summarized in Table 2.

It should be noted that standard trip generation rates were used for the proposed office space.
There has been considerable discussion in the past concerning the operational characteristics of
office buildings in this area due to differences in the number of parking spaces provided and the
number of trips projected during a given peak hour. It must be recognized that multi- tenant
office buildings naturally produce varied schedules for their work forces, so the number of
employees leaving or arriving at any given time is typically less than 40% of the population.
Furthermore, the mixed -use nature of the CityPlace campus promotes more internal trips, many
of which would be made as pedestrians.
In order to validate these characteristics, traffic counts were made at the existing CityPlace One
and Two office buildings during the late afternoon ( 3: 00 to 6: 30 p.m.). These counts showed
that traffic is heavily distributed throughout this period. During the peak hour ( 4: 30 to 5: 30
p. m.), these two buildings ( which are fully occupied) generated 430 trips, or only 1. 04 trips per
1, 000 square feet of gross floor area. This rate is over 30% less than the standard rate being used
for this analysis, which was published by the Institute of Transportation Engineers.
It should be further noted that field observations indicate that excess parking is available at
CityPlace One and Two, apparently because tenant densities are lower than current parking
requirements.
This finding further distances the relationship between parking supplies and trip
generation.
In total, the proposed development would generate between 335 and 360 trips during the peak
hours as shown in Table 2. This traffic was assigned to the road system along with the additional
trips that would be generated by the continued development of the remaining CityPlace
buildings. The forecasted traffic was assigned to the adjacent roadways based on existing travel
Mr. William J. Koman
May 10, 2000
Page 8
patterns and relative location of the major access routes ( i. e., I -270).
The site -generated traffic
was distributed as follows:
To and from the West on Olive Boulevard ............................ ............................45%
To and from the East on Olive Boulevard .......................... ...............................25%
To and from the South on New Ballas Road ...................... ...............................
20%
To and from the Northeast on N. New Ballas Road ........... ............................... 10%
It was noted that many motorists currently utilize Ballas Road to travel to and from the south due
to existing congestion at the interchange of Olive Boulevard with I -270. Once the interchange is
reconstructed, which will begin later this year, many of these trips would be expected to divert
away from Ballas Road. This condition is indicative of motorists behavior in an urbanized
environment where they will seek the " path of least resistance ". In essence, tenants of these
buildings would be expected to utilize alternative routes to access this site in order to minimize
delays.
This reaction further disperses traffic traveling to or from the site and produces a
balancing" of the demands at. consecutive intersections.
Exhibit 2 illustrates the assignment of the traffic associated with CityPlace Four and Five
including the restaurant and condominium facilities). As previously noted, multiple access
routes would be available for motorists traveling to and from this development site.
Consequently, the site -generated traffic would be dispersed between several different
intersections along Olive Boulevard, effectively minimizing the impact that the proposed
development would have on any individual location.
It should be noted that the assignment shown in Exhibit 2 assumes that an improved, public
connection would be created between Rue De La Banque East and West.
Currently, motorists
cut -thru the existing bank facility to avoid the congestion along Olive Boulevard and at its
intersection with New Ballas Road. Therefore, as will discussed in the following section, it is
recommended that a dedicated connection be provided between these two roadways to facilitate
the demand for this movement, as well as disperse the development' s traffic to alternative routes
for access to the site.
FORECASTED TRAFFIC AND OPERATING CONDITIONS
The site -generated trips were aggregated with the existing traffic volumes along the area' s
roadways to produce a forecast of future traffic volumes, as shown in Exhibit 3. These forecasts
also include traffic generated by the previously approved CityPlace Three building and therefore
reflect traffic conditions following the buildout of the CityPlace development.

As can be seen, acceptable operating conditions can be provided at each of the intersections
included in the study. It is important to note that these conditions are based upon revised timing
parameters that could be implemented following the completion of the I -270 interchange

improvements, thereby allowing many of the secondary movements to be better accommodated.
However, it must be understood that modifications to the signal timing along Olive Boulevard
would be at the discretion of MoDOT and that a progression analysis would most likely be
required to ensure that progression could be maintained.
Forecasted operating conditions at each of the critical intersections and, by extension, the impact
of the proposed development are discussed in more detail in the following paragraphs.
Olive Boulevard & New Ballas Road
The intersection of Olive Boulevard and New Ballas Road is already heavily saturated during
peak periods.
Capacity analyses indicate that it currently operates at Level of Service F during
the a. m. peak hour and that the north -south approaches operate at a Level F during the p.m. peak
hour. The morning constraints are related to limitations in signal time for eastbound traffic on
Olive Boulevard, but that could be remedied by timing modifications. In the afternoon,
conditions along Olive Boulevard are exacerbated by congestion at the I -270 interchange and the
inability to coordinate the closely spaced traffic signals.
As previously mentioned, several roadway modifications have been proposed in this area that
will substantially improve operating conditions at these intersections. The most significant of
these is the upgrade of the I -270 interchange to a " center- point- diamond" configuration. This
design will significantly improve operating conditions and will provide improved spacing and
coordination of the traffic signals along Olive, thereby alleviating many of the existing
constraints.
Furthermore, in conjunction with the development of CityPlace Three, Olive Boulevard will be
widened from just west of Old Ballas Road to the Border' s site, thereby extending a third
westbound through lane from the Amoco station at CityPlace Drive all the way to I -270.
This
widening will increase the utilization and efficiency of the third lane at the intersection with New
Ballas.
These improvements would provide additional capacity to the intersection and would allow the
signal timing to be reallocated to the critical movements. In so doing, the intersection would be
able to accommodate the additional traffic associated with the buildout of CityPlace ( Phase IV
and V) with operating conditions that are better or comparable to the existing Levels of Service.
An additional 150 trips and 190 trips would be added to this intersection during the a.m. and p.m.
These additional movements would be limited primarily to the
eastbound left -turn and southbound right -turn movements. The capacity analyses indicate that
the intersection would be capable of accommodating this additional traffic while maintaining
peak hours, respectively.

Level D conditions during both peak hours, though it would still be congested and several
individual movements would operate at Level E. More importantly, delay times for the north south approaches would be greatly diminished in the afternoon, from Level F with more than 65
seconds of vehicular delay to Level E with less than 45 seconds of delay.

An eastbound right -turn lane and a fourth
The eastbound right -turn would facilitate the flow of
traffic onto Center Parkway Drive and the various commercial uses south of Olive Boulevard.
The fourth westbound through lane would accommodate the flow of traffic towards I -270.
As a result, traffic flows along Olive Boulevard would improve, thereby removing the existing

of this intersection would increase to the extent that it could accommodate the forecasted traffic
while still maintaining acceptable operating conditions ( Level C or better).
N. New Ballas Road & CityPlace Drive
Currently, the intersection of New Ballas Road and CityPlace Drive operates at a Level A during
both peak periods, thereby indicating that there is ample capacity to accommodate the anticipated
traffic increases associated with the buildout of CityPlace.
It is expected that as many as 240
additional trips would be added to this intersection following the development of CityPlace Four
and Five.
Our analyses indicate that the intersection would continue to operate at a Level A
following the buildout of CityPlace, so there would be no need for additional physical
improvements beyond the construction of the fourth leg.
As originally proposed, the north leg of this intersection ( which is an extension of CityPlace
Drive) would be two lanes wide ( one in each direction). However, it is recommended that two
outbound' ( southbound) lanes be provided at the intersection with North New Ballas, thereby
accommodating

New Ballas Road & American Legion Drive
The intersection of New Ballas Road with American Legion Drive is currently controlled by a
four -way stop. This location does not satisfy the typical criteria for all -way stop control, though
it is our understanding that the stop signs on New Ballas were originally installed because of
sight distance constraints on the west leg. The retaining walls that created the sight distance
restriction on the west leg were reconstructed several years ago, thereby correcting the preexisting problem.
Therefore, it would be our recommendation that the stops on New Ballas
Road be removed.
The intersection geometrics are adequate to allow partial stop- control without creating adverse
conditions for side -street traffic. In fact, two -way stop control would allow the side street to
operate at Level of Service C or better while eliminating delays to north -south traffic.
It is our understanding that City of Creve Coeur officials may be reluctant to eliminate the all way stop. It should be recognized that, if the all -way stop remains, southbound traffic conditions
would be expected to degrade slightly ( to LOS D) during the p.m. peak hour following the
buildout of the CityPlace campus. This condition would reflect the delay that these motorists
would unnecessarily incur.
Furthermore, the adjacent section of New Ballas Road is currently striped for three southbound
lanes and two northbound lanes. In order to prevent obstructions to through traffic, it would be
appropriate to stripe the center lane to allow two -way left turns with a transition to a dedicated
southbound left -turn lane immediately to the south of this intersection.
Proposed Public Connection Between East and West Rue De La Banque
As was previously mentioned, the assignment of traffic generated by the buildout of CityPlace
assumes the creation of an improved, public connection between Rue De La Banque East and
West. Field observations revealed that motorists tend to seek out a " cut -thru" between these two
roads as ' a means of avoiding the congestion along Olive Boulevard, particularly at the
intersection with New Ballas Road.
These motorists most often utilize the parking lot of the
banking facility to travel between Rue De La Banque East and West.
It is recommended that a dedicated public connection be provided between these two roadways
to accommodate this existing movement, to disperse the traffic from the proposed development
and to facilitate cross -access between the adjacent land uses and collector roads to the north of
Olive Boulevard.
The connection would provide alternative routes for motorists traveling to or
from the development site, thereby minimizing its impact. For example, motorists exiting
CityPlace to travel to the west on Olive Boulevard or to I -270 would have the option of using

New Ballas Road, Rue de la Banque East or Rue de la Banque West to access Olive Boulevard.
Similarly, motorists arriving from the east on Olive could use any one of several curb cuts to
access the development area.
This connection would require the cooperation of the City of Creve Coeur since it would require
the acquisition of additional right -of w
- ay. However, this proposed public roadway would be an
important link for the City since it augments the " frontage road" concept that has been promoted
elsewhere and it would facilitate local traffic movements without forcing motorists onto Olive
Boulevard unnecessarily.

particular emphasis on proposed connections across North New Ballas Road.

An important
concept is the provision of attractive pedestrian as well as
Therefore, it would be necessary to provide pedestrian crossings at the
signalized intersection of CityPlace Drive and New Ballas Road to " link" CityPlace Four and
Five with the remainder of the development.
Since this intersection is signalized, pedestrian
flows could easily and safely be accommodated at this location.
Mid -block crossings of North New Ballas Road would be discouraged. Research indicates that a
large proportion of pedestrian accidents occur at mid -block locations. Grade- separated crossings
could be used instead. However, should the City of Creve Coeur choose to retain the all -way
stop control at the intersection with American Legion Drive, it would be an appropriate location
for a second at -grade pedestrian crossing. Since all of the approaches to the intersection already
have to stop, pedestrian traffic could be accommodated without significantly increasing delay
times for vehicular traffic.
CONCLUSIONS
Several conclusions can be drawn from the preceding discussion, as summarized below. Exhibit
4 illustrates the physical improvements that are recommended to mitigate the traffic generated by
CityPlace Four and Five
Existing traffic conditions along Olive Boulevard are constrained. East of New Ballas Road,
Olive Boulevard narrows to a five -lane section that effectively acts as a bottleneck.
Conditions on Olive Boulevard are also aggravated by spill -backs from the I -270 interchange
and the inability to effectively coordinate the numerous closely spaced traffic signals along
the corridor.

Many individual traffic movements experience long delays due to the prioritization of traffic
flows along Olive Boulevard. As a result, a number of side street movements currently have
insufficient green time to adequately clear and many motorists wait through more than one
cycle of the signal. However, signal timing changes could potentially be implemented after
the
reconstruction
of the
I -270
interchange
to
a
center -point
diamond.
This
new
configuration would provide improved spacing between the interchange and the adjacent
cross streets and it would allow for better coordination of the signals. As a result, additional
time could possibly be devoted to the side streets without impeding the flows on Olive.
The proposed development of CityPlace Four and Five would generate 335 and 360 trips
during the morning and afternoon peak hours, respectively. Multiple access routes are
available for motorists traveling to and from CityPlace. Consequently, the site -generated
traffic would be dispersed between several intersections along Olive Boulevard, effectively
minimizing the impact that the development would have on any one location.
Once CityPlace is built out, acceptable operating conditions could be provided at each of the
critical intersections if the signal timings are revised following the completion of the I -270
interchange improvements. The implementation of these timing would solely be at the
discretion of MoDOT and a progression analysis would most likely have to be completed to
ensure that coordination could be maintained along the corridor.
The intersection of Olive Boulevard and N. New Ballas Road is already heavily saturated
during the peak commuter hours. However, several roadway modifications have been
proposed in this area that will improve operating conditions, including the reconstruction of
the I -270 interchange and the widening of Olive Boulevard to extend the third westbound
lane back to Old Ballas Road. These improvements would provide additional capacity,
thereby allowing the intersection to accommodate the additional traffic associated with the
buildout of CityPlace.
As part of the reconstruction of the I -270 interchange, an eastbound right -turn lane and a
fourth westbound through lane would be provided at the intersection of Olive Boulevard with
Rue de la Banque West. Traffic flows on Olive Boulevard would improve, thereby relieving
the existing congestion that often blocks access to Rue de la Banque West. Consequently,
the forecasted traffic could be accommodated while maintaining acceptable operating
conditions ( Level C or better).
The intersection of New Ballas Road and CityPlace Drive currently operates at a Level A
during both peak periods studied, thereby indicating that there is sufficient capacity to
accommodate the anticipated traffic flows following the buildout of CityPlace. Analyses

indicate that this intersection would continue to operate at a Level A and that there is no need
for physical improvements beyond the construction of the fourth leg serving CityPlace Four
and Five.
It is suggested however, that the signal' s operations be modified to avoid
unnecessary service to CityPlace Drive.
It is recommended that the existing stop signs on New Ballas Road at the intersection with
American Legion be removed.
The intersection geometrics are adequate to allow partial
stop -control without creating adverse traffic conditions on the side street.
It is recommended that a dedicated public roadway connection be provided between Rue de
la Banque West and East to facilitate travel between these two roadways.
This would also
encourage the disbursement of the development' s traffic to alternative access routes. This
improvement would require the City' s cooperation in the acquisition of right -of w
- ay.
However, this proposed roadway would be an important link to the City since it augments the
frontage road" concept that has been promoted elsewhere and it would facilitate the flow of
traffic between the various uses in the immediate area without impacting Olive Boulevard.
Lastly, it is recommended that a pedestrian crossing be provided at the signalized intersection
of New Ballas Road and CityPlace Drive. Should the City chose to retain the all -way stop at
the intersection with American Legion Drive, it is suggested that a second pedestrian
crossing at that intersection. Furthermore, should any mid -block crossings be pursued, it is
recommended that they be limited to grade- separated facilities only.

PC District History
The PC, Planned Community District was created in 1969, under Ordinance 523, adopted on July 14, 1969. The
district was originally known as the ' K' District. The ' K' District was specifically created to accommodate a 66.2
acre development known as the Westgate. As part of Ordinance 523, the rezoning of the 66. 2 acre Westgate
development was included.
The purpose of the ' K', District was to encompass large, compact parcels of property, of not less than forty (40) acres
of contiguous ground; on which can be developed separate environment communities consisting of combinations of
uses in locations where it would be appropriate to the area that office buildings, high rise apartments buildings, town
house buildings, garden type apartments, and complementary retail and service commercial buildings or units
intended primarily to serve the office and residential uses within such district) be constructed under one coordinated
and integral plan under conditions necessary to protect the general welfare including a sufficient landscaped buffer
area to preserve the stability and value of adjoining use districts.
Permitted land uses and developments included, but were not limited, to the following:
Multifamily dwellings, including garden apartments, town houses and high rise apartment buildings;
Commercial office structures for the conduct of any lawful business, professional or personal service;
Stores or shops for 1) the conduct or retail sales business or 2) the furnishing of personal and household
commercial services, provided that the total gross floor area devoted to any one business or serviced does
not exceed 6, 000 square feet.
Contemporaneously with the passage of any ordinance classifying any tract of ground to ' K', Planned Community
District zoning, the City Council shall approve a preliminary master development plan. Such preliminary master
development plan shall prescribe and permanently establish the method of ingress and egress to such tract from
adjacent public roads; the proposed location of public and private roads; the buffer area; the proposed lines of
demarcation between the various land areas within the tract showing the types or types of uses to be permitted
within each area; existing and proposed contour intervals; the number of multiple family dwelling units exclusive of
high rise apartment buildings; the number of dwelling units in high rise apartment buildings; the total amount of
gross leaseable retail sales and service commercial space in each area; and the total amount of gross leaseable office
space in each area. Thereafter, the developer of such tract shall submit a final development plan or plans for all or
part of such tract to the Planning and Zoning Commission for its recommendation to the City Council.
The ' K', Planned Community District may be established by ordinance of the City Council and a preliminary master
development plan may be approved by the City Council where the Council determines that it would promote the
public welfare that a particular tract or tracts be developed under on comprehensive plan allowing greater flexibility
in the combination of land uses within such tract or tracts and within any buildings erected on such tract or tracts
while maintaining at the same time, through the development plan, a greater degree of control of the manner of
In considering any proposed change of zoning to such zoning district and in approving the
preliminary master and final development plans, the Planning and Zoning Commission and the City Council shall
consider the following factors:

The relationship of the areas within the tract to each other;
The relationship of use areas with the tract to existing land uses and the lawful uses of adjoining tracts;
The provision of adequate parking facilities;
The provision of proper means of ingress and egress to public roads;
The provision of effective screening including landscaping and fences ;
Any other factors relevant to the public health, safety and morals, and general welfare of the City of Creve
Coeur.
Whenever the developer files application for approval of the first final development plan for any part of a tract
classified within this district, he shall submit a proposed trust indenture as to all the land within the district which
trust indenture shall provide for the appointment of a Board of Trustees to be selected by the owners of the tract in

district, and which shall provide an equitable means of assessment against all land within such tract ( with the
exception of public lands) to insure that the above described areas and structures shall be maintained in compliance
with this and other ordinances of this City and in such manner that such areas and structures will remain attractive

surrounding areas or be detrimental to property values of land and improvements within such tract or in surrounding
areas. Such trust indenture shall also provide that the conveyance or change in ownership or lease of any part of
such tract shall be subject to the terms of this ordinance and of such trust indenture, and that no right or power
conferred on the trustees by such indentures to comply with the provisions of this paragraph may be abrogated.
Such trust indenture shall be submitted to the City Attorney for his approval as to legal form and shall be recorded
with the Recorder of Deeds of St. Louis County, Missouri, prior to the issuance of any building permit.
Today' s PC District
Under today's current Zoning Code, the intent of the PC, Planned Community district is to provide for the
development of large areas to consist of a mixture of residential, office employment and retail service uses, which
together comprise a community or neighborhood. Permitted land uses include single and attached family residences,
multifamily residences, retail services, financial related services, office uses, health services and public and private
institutional land uses.
The district regulations have been refined.
The Site Concept Plan and Site Development Plan require only the
approval of the Planning and Zoning Commission. Note, any rezoning request to PC, Planned Community district
requires action by the City Council as per Section 26 -113 of the Zoning Ordinance. The minimum district' size for
the PC, Planned Community District continues to be 40 acres.
40 or 15 acres?
The question before the Planning and Zoning Commission is whether 15 acres is appropriate in size to conform with
the spirit and intent of the PC, Planned Community District. At the time of adoption of the PC district, the overall
goal of the City Council was to:
develope separate environment communities consisting of combinations of uses in locations where it
would be appropriate to the area that office buildings, high rise apartments buildings, town house
buildings, garden type apartments, and complementary retail and service commercial buildings or units
intended primarily to serve the office and residential uses within such district) be constructed under on
coordinated and integral plan under conditions necessary to protect the general welfare including a
sufficient landscaped buffer area to preserve the stability and value of adjoining use districts.
This purpose and intent of the PC, Planned Community District was refined in the 1983 to read as follows:
provide for the development of large areas to consist of a mixture of residential, office employment and
retail service uses, which together comprise a community or neighborhood.
In the late 60' s and early 70' s, the abundance of undeveloped land within in St. Louis County was plentiful. The
design standards for developments were based on developments occupying vast amounts of land, graded to
accommodate development proposals and built with the traditional suburban setting in mind, with green lawns and
seas of asphalt parking. The common definition of community at that time did include a mixture of compatible land
uses, but only when seen as part of a big picture. Land uses were still fragmented in the form of clusters, one area
for residential, one area for office and one area for retail. Within these clusters, additional fragmentation occurred
between similar uses, such as single family, garden style or town house residences and high rise apartments. The
concept of neighborhood and community was not defined by areas for pedestrian to congregate and gather, but to
provide easy vehicular circulation and access and reasonable travel distances for vehicles to get to and park.
Westgate, the City's only Planned Community development is an excellent example of the traditional planning
practice of the late 60' s and 70's.
The development made a concentrated effort to create a sense of place and
community to define Creve Coeur. The development even won a national award for its progressive and dynamic
design. This development contains 66. 2 acres of residential, retail and office uses. The retail area is located on the
northwest corner of the site, near the intersection of Tempo Drive and Olive Boulevard.
Dilbert\ COMM- DEV\ P & Z Commission\ Reports \TA- Accolade.doc
The office area is

maintained in the northern half of the site, along Olive Boulevard. The residential area encompasses the remaining
portions of the southern half of the 66.2 acre site. There is a mixture of uses within the 66. 2 acres, but Westgate is
designed in the form of a little zoned suburban city, each use segregate from the other.
By mid 1980, the only large comprehensive development in Creve Coeur was the 30 -acre West Park development,
annexed from St. Louis County prior to development plans being submitted. West Park requested CB, Core
Business district zoning. The CB district provided the uses necessary for the development and had no minimum
district tract size.
West Park was approved under a Master Development Plan ( Site Concept Plan) and also had
recorded indentures similar to those required in the PC, Planned Community district. The West Park proposal and
current make up did not contain any residential uses.
In 1995, the City created the MX, Mix Use district in an effort to provide a more traditional method of mixing
compatible uses in a smaller designated area similar to those of old walkable downtown developments. The intent
of the MX district was to encourage the redevelopment of under developed areas of the City that have been
identified by a City land use plan. With a city fairly well developed, there were no longer opportunities for large
tracts of land for development. The only way to encourage creating community districts or neighborhood centers
was through redevelopment.
The MX district was created flexible enough to encourage its use in rezoning,
requiring a minimum of 5- acres. In addition, the MX district encouraged more comprehensive developments, by
providing an incentive of increased density on a site the larger the lot became.
The use of MX zoning has been applied by the City conservatively, only along the Olive Boulevard corridor,
between Tempo Drive and Questover Lane. One reason for its minimal use has been that only one City plan, the
Northwest Sector Land Use Plan, has identified the use of the MX zoning district.
As a result of today's PC district and MX district, coordinated development has been limited. The PC restriction of
40 -acres has not allowed the opportunity for its use on smaller developments. The MX district was devised as a
zoning tool to be utilized through land use plans and also was not available until after developments like West Park
and CityPlace were proposed. The result has been developments under the CB, Core Business District and GC,
Each district allowing developments on one -half acre lots and without any
requirement to be regulated under a big picture.
General Commercial District.
As long as the City does not have other land use plans identifying MX use as indicated in the Northwest Sector Plan,
coordinated development for developments below 40 -acres may continue to develop as they are today. The request
to reduce the 40 -acre minimum tract size for the PC, Planned Community District is an effective way to foster
coordinated developments under the control of an indenture system similar in use at Westgate. This application can
be provided through the CB and GC districts, but with its historical use, it would be hard to set in place standards
such as those in the PC district.
Other Communities
The City of Chesterfield has a PC, Planned Commercial District similar to that of Creve Coeur's PC, Planned
Community district. Under Chesterfield' s zoning ordinance, a PC, Planned Commercial District may be established
on a tract of land in single ownership or single management control and does not identify a minimum tract size. The
City of Maryland Heights has a PD, Planned District which allows " MUD ", Mixed Use Developments. The
application and use of the " MUD" district places a minimum 7. 5 acre tract size.
Suggested Conditions for approval
Should the Planning and Zoning Commission motion to approve the Text Amendment as submitted by the applicant,
staff suggests the following conditions:
1.
Only the minimum district tract size be changed from 40 acres to 15 acres. The Commission is encouraged not
to eliminate the reference of single owner or developer. Said amendment would read as follows:

Re:
Proposed Text Amendments
Dear Carlos:
As we discussed,
amendments.
we desire to amend our May 2,
2000 application for text
The only text amendment for which we now seek approval is
amendment to the Dimensional Regulation for the Planned Community District
which would permit a minimum tract size to be developed of thirty (30) rather
than forty (40) acres. Because tracts of land of 40 acres or more are nowadays
unusual in a highly -developed suburb such as Creve Coeur, it makes sense to
modernize the standard by reducing the minimum tract size for planned
community districts.
In addition, the Dimensional Regulations contemplate only a single owner of a
tract zoned PC, which owner could later subdivide those tracts for development
by multiple developers. Although at one time it made sense that a single owner
may have a large enough tract to rezone it as a Planned Community District, it
no longer does.
In today's world, a more modern and flexible standard would
be appropriate to permit' several landowners to come together to create a
Planned Community District
Thus, our proposed text amendment would
eliminate the single owner requirement.
The enclosed proposed text amendment would update your code to create
greater flexibility in the Planned Community District and better reflect current
practices and levels of development in the city. Please place this matter for
consideration on the May 15 Planning and Zoning Commission docket. If you
have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
Sincerely,
Charles Deutsch

Re:
Proposed Text Amendments
Dear Carlos:
We desire to further amend our application for text amendments. ( Please
see our prior correspondence on March 2, 2000 and April 11, 2000.) The
enclosed proposed text amendment lowers the current minimum tract size
to be developed in a Planned Community District from forty (40) acres to
fifteen ( 15) acres. We believe 15 acres is more than sufficient to meet the
purpose and intent of the Planned Community District of developing large
areas to consist of mixed uses which would comprise a community or
neighborhood.
This text amendment would modernize the current standard
for planned communities due to the fact that Creve Coeur has become a
highly -developed suburb.
We look forward to the Planning and Zoning Commission' s consideration of
the proposed text amendment on May 15.
Sincerely,
Charles Deutsch

Zoning Commission reviewed and approved with conditions the 3 -lot single family Preliminary
Subdivision Plat on February 22, 2000. The 3 -lot subdivision will redevelop an existing single family residence on a 3. 92 -acre parcel. The property is zoned ' A', Single Family Residential
District. Both the Planning and Zoning Commission and City Council must take action on the
Final Subdivision Plan. Only the Planning and Zoning Commission must take action on the
Subdivision Improvement Plans.
LOCATION AND ZONING DESCRIPTION
CITY ADMINISTRATOR

SUMMARY PROPOSAL
On February 22, 2000, the Planning and Zoning Commission conditionally approved a 3 -lot, Preliminary
Subdivision Plat for the 12529 Conway Road property subject to the following conditions identified in Staffs Report
dated February 22, 2000.
1.
A 30 -foot wide extension of the proposed right -of w
- ay be extended from the cul -de -sac terminus, to the
east boundary line of the subject property to provide access for the most advantageous development pattern
of the Martin parcel.
2.
3.
4.
The cul -de -sac terminus would have to be approved by the City Engineer and Fire Marshall.
The street name shown on the note placed on the plat stating " access to lot 1 shall be from...." be change to
Conway Road.
The applicant shall submit 3 sets of the approved Preliminary Subdivision Plat, including any conditions of
approval set by the Planning and Zoning Commission to the Department of Community Development
prior to the application of a Final Subdivision Plat and Subdivision Improvement Plans.
On March 28, 2000, the applicant submitted a Final Subdivision Plat and Subdivision Improvement Plans. Said plat
and improvement plans did not incorporate any of the above mentioned conditions that were part of the approval of
the Preliminary Subdivision Plat. Section 22A -12. 3 ( c) of the Subdivision and Land Development Ordinance
establishes the following procedures for the Planning and Zoning Commission to review a preliminary subdivision
plat:
Planning and Zoning Commission: The Commission shall consider the merits of the Preliminary
Subdivision Plat and the review and comments of related City officials at its next regular meeting. By
majority vote, the Commission shall approve or disapprove the Preliminary Plat. A vote of disapproval
shall be accompanied by reasons for such action. In approving a Preliminary Subdivision Plat, the
Commission may impose conditions to be resolved in the Subdivision Improvement Plans and Final
Subdivision Plat.
The Subdivision Improvement Plans and Final Subdivision Plat have failed to incorporate conditions 1 and 3 noted
above, and have not resolved condition 2.
Under Section 22A -14. 3, the review procedures for Subdivision Improvement Plans are as follows:
Subsequent to Commission approval of the Preliminary Subdivision Plat, the applicant may submit a
written request to the Zoning Administrator for review and approval of Subdivision Improvement Plans.
The Subdivision Improvement Plans may be submitted for review and approval at the same time or prior to
submission of the Final Subdivision Plat.
The applicant shall submit five ( 5) copies of the complete
Subdivision Improvement Plans to the Zoning Administrator who shall distribute these to the appropriate
City departments for review in a timely fashion. The Zoning Administrator shall coordinate the review and
receive comments form the various City departments, and shall forward the same to the Planning and
Zoning Commission for its review at the next regularly scheduled meeting. The Zoning Administrator, as
assisted by the various City departments shall:
1.
Determined the completeness of the plans and compliance with the approved Preliminary
2.
verify accuracy of information provided;
3.
evaluate the degree of compliance with the technical requirements in the land development
Subdivision Plat;
standards, Article III of the Subdivision and Land Development Ordinance, and other applicable
4.
City regulations;
identify any deficiencies or issues which require further attention and should be considered as
conditions of approval should the Planning and Zoning Commission choose to approve the Site
Improvement Plans.
The Final Subdivision Plat and Subdivision Improvement Plans are not in compliance with the approved
Preliminary Subdivision Plat. The request for the road right -of w
- ay extension from the cul -de -sac terminus, to the
east boundary line has not been incorporated. This has limited staff in review of compliance to items 3 and 4 noted
above and Fire Marshal approval of the cul -de -sac terminus.

Re:
Bel Arbor Subdivision - Request for Reconsideration
of Easement Extension to Martin Parcel Requirement
Dear Commission Members:
Let this letter serve as Taylor-Morley, Inc.' s request to the Commission for reconsideration of the
required easement connecting the private street in the Bel Arbor Subdivision to the adjacent
Martin Tract ( See "Suggested Requirements of Approval ", Paragraph
1, attached to February 23,
2000 correspondence). As you know the Martin tract is not subject to development at this time.
If this tract does develop with a public street, it will be difficult to force the Martin tract owners
to pay for the maintenance of the private Bel Arbor road which only serves three lots.
Furthermore, since approval of the preliminary subdivision plat, we have lost two sales on the
easement burdened lot. Not only is the easement unnecessary, it is diminishing the value of all
of the Bel Arbor lots without any real benefit to the City. Please reconsider the imposition of this
hardship on our development.
Very truly yours,
ill Taylor

On April 12, 1999, the City Council adopted Ordinance 1991, a Conditional Use Permit
application and Site Development Plan for the Gardens of Creve Coeur ( now known as the
Summit Lofts) development located at 652 Emerson Road.
The Summit Lofts is a 227 unit,
3RD WARD
multi -family residential development on a 3. 84 -acre lot located between Emerson Road and
ELEANOR 6LOVINSKY
Decker Lane, north of the Creve Coeur Corporate Center IV. A Conditional Use Permit was

issued to permit a density over 20 units per acre, to permit four, 7 -story structures and to permit
a floor area ratio of 1. 25.
4TH WARD
MARTIN A. BARNHOL77
RICHARD J. WOLKOWITZ
The applicant has submitted an application requesting an amendment to the adopted Site
Development Plans.
Said amendment is to allow for a reduction in the number of units on the
site, from 227 units to 88 units. In addition, the building heights will be reduced from 7- stories
to 4- stories each, and afar reduction from 1. 25 to 0. 89. The Conditional Use Permit will still be
necessary for the site density of 23 units per acre, but the building height and far will no longer
need Conditional Use approval.
In addition to said changes, there have been some site
modifications.
Since the site is located within the boundaries identified by the Southeast Olive/ I -270
CITY ADMINISTRATOR
Development Core Area Plan, both the Planning and Zoning Commission and City Council must
MARK C. PERKINS
take action on said request.
LOCATION AND ZONING DESCRIPTION
CITY CLERK
LAVERNE COLLINS
The subject property consists of 167, 270 sq. ft. (3. 844 acres) located between Emerson Road ( to
the west) and Decker Lane ( to the east), directly across from Studt Road. The property is zoned
CB, Core Business District.
The CB, Core Business District is intended to guide and control
private development and redevelopment of the major business districts in coordination with
related public improvements and services. Specifically, the CB district is intended to:
a)
Relate the development of retail, office and multifamily residential uses servicing both
a citywide and subregional service area to an adopted development plan for the major
business areas, including land use, phasing and public improvement elements.
Site Development Pl

b)
c)
Encourage site consolidation and an orderly, phased pattern of development.
Accommodate the use of existing residential structures for offices in the interim period between their
present occupancy and ultimate redevelopment.
d)
Induce and ensure high quality future development through the used of Site Development Plan approval
procedures which provide for the specific consideration of access, parking, drainage, landscaping and
design factors.
There is a mixture of uses surrounding the site all under the CB, Core Business District zoning designation. To the
north are some single -family residential structures. To the south is the Creve Coeur Corporate Center III and IV
campus.
To the east the site is bounded by Decker Lane and to the west the site is bounded by Emerson Road.
There are addition office buildings west of the site and a small office center and surface parking lot east of the site.
PROPOSAL SUMMARY PROPOSAL
The applicant is proposing to construct 4, 4 -story residential structures containing 88 residential units. The site will
be equally divided, with two of the residential structures along Emerson Road and the other two along Decker Lane.
The center of the site will house a club house, pool and landscaped courtyard. The residents will be provided with
underground parking. The parking structure will be divided into two components, one under the two buildings along
Emerson Road and one under the two buildings along Decker Lane. There will be surface parking reserved
primarily for visitors in front of both buildings along Emerson Road and Decker Lane.
The buildings will be masonry structures, incorporating a variety of brick and stone on the elevation details. Each
structure will be four stories in height, approximately 53 feet in height. Lower units will maintain private lawns
with upper units with balconies facing east or west. The central courtyard area will contain a pool and clubhouse.
The area will be landscaped along the perimeter, with an open axis view facing north, towards Trojan Drive. Access
to the garages will be on the south side of the campus.
PREDOMINATE CHANGES
The major change to the adopted Site Development Plan is the unit density. The original plans approved indicated a
potential density of 227 units. However, it is important to note that it was never the applicant's intent of construct
227 units. The building layout of the former plans indicated the highest and best use of the site, but the applicant's
intent was to design and build these units serving their client' s needs. The actual estimated density of the site was
indicated to be about 150 units. The plans submitted indicate a revised density of 88 units in the four structures.
The building heights have been reduced from 7- stories to 4- stories, resulting in the decrease in the number of units.
Once again, these units are based on an assumption they will be designed build to the client's needs. With the
reduction in units, the parking required on the site has been reduced. This has eliminated the need to have a
continuous underground garage structure stretching from Emerson Road to Decker Lane. The underground garage
structure has now been divided into two components, one on the east side of the site and one on the west side of the
site. This has allowed the architect' s of the site to propose a standard structural system based on a simple grid. To
accommodate the structural grid system, the buildings have been aligned equal distance from the road right -of w
- ay.
The previous design had the buildings staggered. The buildings and the underground parking structure are now
under the same footprint.
The building realignment has expanded the size of the central courtyard. This has allowed the developer to
eliminate the dividing garage access drive on the south, and link to the Creve Coeur Corporate Center IV property.
The clubhouse has been centered and centered on the site to serve as the focal point of the central courtyard. This
has maintained the axial visual linkage with Trojan Drive and Center Parkway Drive.
STAFF CONCERNS
The initial Site Development Plan was approved prior to the adoption of Ordinance 2030, which reduced building
setbacks in the CB, Core Business District to a maximum of 15 feet for 50% of the street facing building elevation.
Staff has determined that the applicant has a vested interest under the old ordinance, and therefore, the existing
building setbacks adopted in the original Site Development Plan may be maintained. The plans submitted indicate a
building setback of 92 feet. Within the area between the street and the building, there is the street sidewalk,
landscaping, off street
surface parking, additional landscaping and then the building footprint. Staff encourages the
Commission to consider the placement of decorative wall fence or dense landscaping between the sidewalk and the
surface parking area. This will be in conformance with the Commission's goal of creating an urban streetscape
within the defined " towncenter" area.

The pedestrian walkways leading from the street sidewalk into the proposed development are divided by the drive
aisle of the off street
parking lot. Staff recommends that the sidewalk surface continue over the drive aisle rather
than having a hatched pedestrian crossing on the parking surface.

SITE COVERAGE AND PARKING REQUIREMENTS
Under the PO, Planned Office site coverage regulations and Section 26 -93. 2 General Parking
Requirements, the following table compares existing site conditions with the Zoning Code
requirements:
Minor Site Plan
Tippin's Restaurant
Page 2 of 2
Maximum Site Coverage:
63%
Existing Site Coverage:
88%
Required Parking based on 1 stall per 50 square feet: (
107 stalls
Existing Parking
6, 495 sf. 50
/ sf.)
130 stalls
Parking as per proposed text amendment to Section 26 -93. 2: 94 stalls based on a 202 seat, seating capacity
Note that the site is over the permitted site coverage in the PO, Planned Office District and does not provide the
necessary parking required under Section 26 -93. 2.
STAFF CONCERNS
Since the proposed alterations to the site are minor in nature, the applicant may maintain the existing nonconformity,
but is not permitted to increase the existing degree of nonconformity as defined under Section 26 -70. 5 Site Related
Nonconformities. This allows the applicant to make minor alterations to the site such as including an outdoor
seating area, so long as the 88% site coverage is not exceeded. Therefore, the proposed green space being added
must be equal or greater than the amount of open space being removed. Currently, the plans as proposed, have more
green space being removed than added. The applicant will have to provide additional green space on the site,
possibly through the removal of a couple of more parking spaces.
The parking on the site, 107 stalls, is below the parking currently required by Code, 130 stalls. However, with the
proposed changes to the general parking requirements, the applicant would need to maintain a minimum of 94 stalls.
This would allow the applicant to remove a couple of parking spaces and convert them to green space.
The
Commission may grant a tentative approval subject to no permits being issued for the site alterations until the
amendments to Section 26 -93. 2 are adopted.
SUGGESTED REQUIREMENTS OF APPROVAL
The Planning and Zoning Commission will take action on the accompanying Minor Site Plan for a 684 square foot
outdoor seating area at the Tippin's Restaurant. Should the Planning and Zoning Commission motion to approve
said request, staff recommends the following:
1.
The amount of green space provided on the site must be equal to or greater than the amount of green space
2.
being removed for the outdoor seating area. The overall site coverage on the site may not exceed 88 %.
No permits may be issued for said site improvements until the proposed Text Amendment to Section 2693. 2 is adopted by the City Council.
ACTION
Action on the Minor Site Plan will be in the form of approval, approval with conditions or denial. No action by the
City Council is required.

RE: VoiceStream Wireless Application for a Conditional Use Permit at 11330 Olive Blvd.
Dear Mr. Trejo:
This letter accompanies an application for a Conditional Use Permit to place antennas on the rooftop of the EBE
building at 11330 Olive Boulevard Creve Coeur, MO 63141, for use as a PCS base station.
VOICESTREAM AND PCS
VoiceStream is committed to providing PCS services to the Greater St. Louis Region. In 1999, VoiceStream was granted
a license by the Federal Communications Commission to operate a PCS wireless phone system in this area, as well as
numerous other markets across the United States.
PCS is one of the newest emerging low-power wireless technologies. PCS stands for Personal Communications Services
and will truly allow businesses, individuals, and government services to communicate in an entirely new way. Although similar
to traditional cellular systems, PCS will look, sound, and work better, with the added advantage of having the capability to
provide fax service, paging, computer data, and video transmission in just one portable phone. PCS wireless is digital so it
transmits with more clarity than the analog cellular systems. Also, PCS is secure. VoiceStream has chosen GSM technology to
support their system This technology has been in use in Europe for many years and has proven reliability. User verification
systems eliminate cloning problems and encryption prevents calls from being overheard. These are just some of the features
PCS can offer.
PROPOSED USE
VoiceStream is proposing to construct a PCS base station on the HBE Building rooftop. This site is located in the CB,
Commercial Business Zone. VoiceStream will have three directional antennas ( approximately 56" tall x 8" wide x 2.75" deep)
mounted on the bowl of the tank
The antennas will transmit and receive low power radio signals.
One unmanned
prefabricated equipment cabinet measuring approximately 63" high x 53" wide x 25" deep will be located on the roof as well.
This equipment cabinet is connected to the antennas by narrow cables.
ZONING AND SPECIAL USE REQUIREMENTS
As a condition of our FCC license, there are firm FCC mandates for technical and operational standards of a PCs system
The requirements for our license consist of a high level of voice quality and level of service that must be provided across the
0
allotted coverage area. In order to accomplish this, antenna sites must be spaced' in such a way that the signals overlap but do
not interfere with each other.
For that reason, VoiceStream ensures that every site is carefully selected. The site that is chosen must provide coverage to
its service area and be as compatible as possible with the community where it is placed. VoiceStream prefers to locate' on
existing structures whenever possible; this may include rooftops, existing towers, or even billboards if they are of a sufficient
height. However, the most important factor for siting a PCS base station is the ability to send and receive radio signals. It is
essential that PCS antennas meet a " line -of- sight" transmission to the area being covered. The height required to accomplish
this is determined largely by topography and other environmental obstructions, such as buildings and trees, which can block a
radio signal. When there are no existing structures of a sufficient height to meet the needs of VoiceStream's system, a new
tower must be constructed to support the antennas. The HBE Building meets the current design requirements of our
technical system
The proposed use will not impair the use and enjoyment of surrounding property nor impede its normal development.
The use will require little maintenance ( approximately four times a year) so it will not be distracting to surrounding property
uses. No personnel will be stationed at the site. The equipment cabinet is not equipped with water or sewer facilities, nor is it
large enough to house employees. The cabinets are intended only to enclose and protect the radios and electronics. The
proposed use will have no impact on wetlands, watercourses, or other ecologically valuable lands. No signs will be posted on
this facility except applicable warning or equipment information signs. The base station will not be lighted. Traffic will not
increase due to the use and it will not create unsafe access on related streets.
Additionally, there is no information which
indicates that the construction of this site would diminish or impair property values within the area.
The proposed use will not be detrimental to the public health, safety, or welfare. PCS wireless uses low power to insure
that the signal stays within the designated coverage area and does not interfere with neighboring sites. An additional feature of
this PCS facility is that no ionizing radiation is created by the radio transmissions.
There are no activities associated with this use which would produce airborne emissions, odor, vibrations, heat, glare,
radioactive materials, or loud noises. All equipment and materials needed to operate the site are located within the equipment
cabinets, including heating, ventilating, and air conditioning provisions. Since this site does not have water or sanitary
facilities, it will generate no wastewater. Current levels of all government services are adequate to meet any needs of this use.
This site can act to enhance public safety and welfare because it will enable VoiceStream to bring PCS technology to the
City Creve Coeur. The advantages to the business or individual using a PCS phone will be clear to them But PCS can also
aid those who do not choose to own a portable phone. Police officers are aided in their public safety efforts by being able to
use PCS wireless fax machines to obtain immediate information about potential suspects.
Firefighters can receive faxed
blueprints of a building, while en route, to more safely and quickly fight fires. Ambulances can transmit vital patient data to
hospitals, allowing for the more personalized preparation of emergency rooms to meet the needs of their patients. At spill
sites, hazardous material information can be obtained by accessing computer databases throughout the country. Stranded
motorists without mobile phones benefit from the passing motorists who are able to call for help. These are just a few
examples of how PCS technology can work to enhance public safety and welfare. Additionally, the presence of another
competitor in the marketplace works to drive down prices for services from all wireless companies and ensures continued
efforts to achieve better quality and service.
VoiceStream respectfully requests that the City approve our Conditional Use application for this use. If you have any
questions, please contact me at ( 314) 368 -8330.
Sincerely,
I

To whom it may concern:
Omnipoint Communications is developing a system to provide PCS wireless technology to the Greater St. Louis Region. The
design of our system is based on careful site selection, in which each antenna site is spaced in a non -uniform pattern. Prior to
obtaining any specific sites, the network is designed by taking into consideration the topography of the land, population density,
expected use levels, and, whenever possible, the location of existing structures. Next, a search " ring" is identified for each
antenna site. The technology that VoiceStream is utilizing to develop this PCS system allows for some flexibility in base station
placement, but generally, the search ring, in suburban areas averages about two-tenths ( 2) of a mile in diameter. Specific sites
are then obtained through the leasing and zoning process. In order to maintain contiguous coverage between cell sites, as sites
around a particular area become fixed, flexibility is lost for shifting sites in the remaining rings. We consider it important to
provide high quality service in Creve Coeur. High quality means: it is our goal to provide a dependable radio signal level allowing
successful call completion and hand over between adjacent sites. The location of a site with respect to the adjacent sites is of
prime importance in the design of our system. Since the system works in continuity, the height and location of the sites are
chosen such that they handoff to adjacent sites successfully. In analyzing candidates, four major technical factors are
considered. They are: the height of structures versus surrounding PCS frequency obstructions, the ground elevation above mean
sea level, the coverage accomplished by a site and the proximity of the site to the search ring center.
The candidate at HBE Building was selected to meet our coverage objective for this ring, which is to cover Olive Blvd and
surrounding area. It fulfills our requirements, while other candidates considered for this ring were either not viable, or available,
for meeting our needs. Other sites evaluated were Ameritech, SW Bell and Sprint Towers. The selected site will handoff to our
other proposed site in Creve Coeur on Olive that is due West of this proposed site.
The proposed cabinet chosen for the site is manufactured by Nortel, which is a leader in the telecommunications industry. The
model number for the cabinet is S8000. This cabinet will support the tri- sectored antenna configuration. It will be located on the
roof of the HBE Building and inside the penthouse enclosure. EMS Wireless manufactures the antennas chosen for this site and
the model is RR65- 18 -02DP. The antenna cluster will consist of three sectors and there two directional antenna proposed per
sector to be used for both transmit and receive. These are high -gain directional antennas, which provide maximum radio signal
coverage.
If there are any questions, or need for additional information, please do not hesitate to call me at 317 -5307.

Dear Mr. Trejo:
VoiceStream wireless is proposing roof -mounted telecommunications antennas on the
HBE building at 11330 Olive Blvd.
We are aware that there is an existing Sprint tower at the Creve Coeur Country Club and
of the City of Creve Coeur' s Ordinance Requirements for proposing towers within 1500'
of an existing tower. The Sprint tower at this time does not meet our RF requirements,
however we could co- locate on if it was a possibility for us to extend the tower to meet
the RF requirements. We would also need additional ground space for our equipment.
Please advise on whether an extension would be permitted on that site.
Thank you for your time.
Sincerely,
k,

SUMMARY PROPOSAL
The applicant is proposing to install three ( 3) antenna bands on the sloped gable roof parapet on the Drury Inn &
Suites building rooftop. Each antenna band has attachments for three ( 3) antennas, with a total nine ( 9) individual
antennas. These antennas will be attached to the north, east and west sides of the rooftop gable. One antenna band
will be on the north side of the building, facing Olive Boulevard. The second antenna band will be facing west,
along the southwest corner of the building. The third antenna band will be facing east, along the southeast side of
the building. The antennas will project above the lower roofline of the parapet gable, but will not extend above the
high end of the rooftop. The communication equipment shelter will be placed within the walls of the parapet walls.
The height of the equipment shelter is below that of the parapet wall.
There are no other telecommunication providers located on this site.
STAFF CONCERNS
The placement of roof mounted
communication equipment is regulated by two sections of the Zoning Ordinance.
Section 26 -52. 4 which establishes the standards for the placement of roof mounted
communication equipment in the
CB, Core Business District and Section 26 -88. 2 General Criteria for Communication Towers and Roof mounted

The Site Development Plans submitted indicate that the rooftop communication equipment will be in compliance
with subparagraph ( a) above.
The location of the site, however, is across the street from a building already
containing roof mounted
communication equipment and within 1, 500 feet from another site containing
telecommunication equipment. There are two additional sites located within a 1/ 2 mile radius of the Drury Inn &
Suites building. Under subparagraph ( b) above, the applicant must document their efforts to locate their
communication equipment on an existing communication towers within the City or in close proximity to the City.
Such documentation shall also indicate why collocation on any existing tower is not feasible or not desirable.
Due to the residential properties south of this site, the applicant needs to verify the distance between the nearest
roof mounted
communication equipment structure to these residences. Because of the close proximity staff request
that this distance be provided by a registered surveyor or' engineer within the State of Missouri. A note needs to be

provided within the enclosed Site Development Plan that no signs, lighting, other than safety or hazard signs or
lighting, shall not be placed on any roof mounted
communication equipment.
In addition to the conditions of Section 26 -52. 4 of the Zoning Ordinance, Section 26 -88. 2 sets additional criteria for
the placement of roof mounted
communication equipment. Said criteria is attached to this report, titled Ordinance
1830: Regulations over communication equipment. The plans submitted indicate compliance with a majority of
said section. The only items not addressed are the collocation requirements mentioned above and verification of
adequate separation from surrounding residential uses.
COMMENTS OVER LIGHTING AT THE DRURY INN & SUITES SITE
The City has sent a correspondence to the Drury Inn & Suites building owner expressing that the on -site lighting is
in violation with the lighting standards in Section 26 -77 of the Zoning Ordinance. The construction manager has
submitted correspondence back to staff disagreeing with staffs interpretation. Staff will contact the manager to
further discuss resolving this issue. In addition, the City has obtained the services of a lighting consultant to audit
several sites including the subject property. The applicant has been made aware of this issue and that this issue
might hold approval of the requested Conditional Use Permit. Staff proposes three alternatives for the Commission
to consider in regards to the lighting issue:
1.
2.
Defer action on the Conditional Use Permit request until the lighting issue is resolved.
Defer the scheduling of a Public Hearing or Council action until the lighting issue is resolved.
The
applicant will have to consent to a time extension should this option be approved.
3.
Defer the issuance of any building permits for the installation of the telecommunication equipment until the
lighting issue is resolved.
Staff encourages option three, so long as the applicant and building owner are willing to cooperate with staff in
resolving the lighting issue.

City of Creve Coeur
Attn.: Carlos Trejo
City Planner
300 North New Ballas Rd.
Creve Coeur, MO 63141
May 11, 2000
Dear: Mr. Trejo:
This letter comes to your attention pursuant to our conversations regarding the proposed rooftop
telecommunications facility to be located on the Drury Inn & Suites at 11980 Olive.
In compliance with the City' s zoning ordinance, Nextel has reviewed all telecommunications facilities
within a one half ( 1/ 2) mile radius of the proposed site to determine whether the existing sites are suitable
for collocation. The following sites were each examined by contacting the property owners /lessees and by
performing Radio Frequency ( RF) engineering studies to determine projected signal coverage from the
subject properties:
Ameritech Stealth Pole: ( northwest corner of 270 &
Olive) The structure is a thirty nine
39) foot tall pole only capable of supporting one user. The structure is approximately
one half ( 1/ 2) the height necessary to meet Nextel' s RF needs for the area.
The " Compaq Building": ( 721 Emerson --southeast corner of 270 & Olive)
is immediately adjacent to the proposed Drury Inn & Suites location, but is
The structure
approximately forty (40) to Fifty (50) feet shorter than the height necessary to meet
Nextel' s needs in the area. It has also been determined by Nextel' s RF engineers that due
to the close proximity to the Drury Inn &
Suites, and the height differentials between the
two buildings, that a facility at this location would not allow for satisfactory RF coverage
to the east of the subject property ( see attached RF studies).
Nextel then surpassed the ordinance requirements by considering two ( 2) locations outside of the one half
1/ 2) mile area, to see if these properties would meet Nextel' s technical requirements:
Ameritech Monopole: ( at the City firehouse) The property is approximately 0. 3 miles to
the east of the proposed Drury Inn & Suites location. Due to the presence of existing
equipment on the monopole, a height sufficient to meet Nextel' s needs is not available .
Because of the property' s location, its Above Mean Sea Level ( AMSL) elevation ( 670'),
and because the available height lower than that needed to meet Nextel' s requirements,
the property would not provide Nextel with adequate coverage to the west of the
property. Because of this coverage degredation, the required traffic to be offloaded from
surrounding cell sites will not be met.
Southwestern Bell Self-Supporting Tower: ( behind Millstadt Lawn Equipment) The
property is even further east than the Ameritech Monopole ( 0.4 miles), and is at a lower
AMSL elevation ( 655').
All of the factors that make the Ameritech Monopole ineffective
are even worse with this property. Additionally, the ground space is limited, which
makes collocation almost impossible. Nextel' s system capacity requirements will also
not be met here, since the appropriate offloading cannot occur.
After careful consideration of the available communications facilities in the subject area, Nextel is left with
only one ( 1) viable option for the location of its proposed communications facility —the Drury Inn &
Suites
location.
Please direct any questions that the City may have to my attention at the address listed above, or I may be
reached at ( 314) 692 -6508.

RE: EXISTING AMERITECH CELLULARTM TOWER
12101 OLIVE BOULEVARD
Dear Tom:
You recently requested information on potential co- location on our existing Stealth tower
at the rear of the above property (in unincorporated St. Louis County). This tower is only
39 ft. tall and is designed for one user to allow it to mimic a light standard. Therefore, we
cannot accommodate your request for co- location.
Please inform the City of Creve Coeur of this situation. Direct any questions to me at
314 -920 -4793. Thank you.
Sincerely,
