No one asked Maria Alvarez any questions when her project was considered by the city of Ste. Genevieve Planning and Zoning Commission last Thursday.
The virtual meeting was held on Zoom and lasted a little more than four minutes.
Alvarez and co-owner Mauricio Banderas Aguirre were requesting that their property on Highway 32 be rezoned from R-1 Residential to C-1 Commercial.
The land had been annexed into the city of Ste. Genevieve earlier this spring. It will be the new site of Plaza Azteca Family Grill [formerly known as El San Felipe restaurant], which is moving from its current location at 634 Ste. Genevieve Drive.
A motion to recommend approval was made almost immediately and seconded. It passed 6-0 with three absent.
The annexation had passed 7-1 at the March 12 Board of Aldermen meeting, following a public hearing earlier in the meeting.
