Ellisville postpones land use, zoning bill
By DIANE E. SAMSON
The Ellisville City Council voted to postpone the reading of a bill which would have amended land use and commercial zoning districts in the Ellisville city code.
The Council approved the first reading of the bill with all members in favor except Mayor Adam Paul, who shared a presentation outlining his problems with the bill.
The primary issue Paul had with the bill is that it, in his opinion, puts the Great Streets Initiative, a working document, into Ellisville’s city code. He also said that some of the language of the bill was confusing and seemed inconsistent even with the Great Streets Initiative.
Ada Hood, director of planning and community development, said that Paul’s questions are pretty basic and easily interpreted. She offered to discuss the issues further with the mayor.
Councilmember Michelle Murray (District 3) requested that Paul’s presentation be forwarded to Ellisville staff so they can review the information.
The Council decided to table the issue and move it back into a future work session.
