O’FALLON – The O’Fallon Planning Commission discussed a proposed site plan for a new medical office building to be located along Regency Park.
The 30,882 square foot medical office building will be built 175 feet from the north entrance of St. Elizabeth’s hospital and 200 feet south of the Enjoy Church entrance. The building will house two medical offices, which the applicant, Justin Floyd of Green Mount Enterprises LLC, believes will meet a need for public use and compliment nearby land uses.
Assistant City Planner Justin Randall said that the site plan has the potential to provide cross access to the parcel that would exist to the south.
“The parking requirements for a medical building of this size requires 139 parking spaces and all spaces must meet dimension requirements,” Randall said.
Randall said that a landscape plan has provided, which includes the planting of trees along the street and a parking lot island.
“They are proposing some signage on the front entrance and back,” he said.
The commission made a motion for the cross access easement and connection to the vacant property to the south to be “evaluated closer” at a future meeting.
