Magruder Limestone, Inc. of Troy, Mo. has applied for a conditional use permit (CUP) with the Village of Sunrise Beach to operate an asphalt plant at 12729 N. State Hwy. 5.
The move comes after the board of trustees did not grant the company a merchant license for the business on the grounds that the property's commercial zoning does not allow for industrial use.
The CUP request will be before the Sunrise Beach Planning Commission at its 6 p.m. Dec. 3 meeting at City Hall.
The agenda item will open the case, but is not the public hearing portion of the CUP procedure, according to village planner Roger Corbin. The hearing will likely be part of the commission’s January meeting.
This is one of the first CUP applications the village has had. The zoning ordinance was implemented in 2009.
An asphalt plant formerly operated at this location as a nonconforming preexisting use, but lost its "grandfathered" status by ordinance after being out of operation for six months or more.
Magruder is seeking to open an asphalt plant in the area after being awarded a contract by the Missouri Department of Transportation to resurface around 28 miles of Route 5 in Camden and Morgan counties and nearly three miles of Route 54 in Camden County. The road work will be done during the 2013 construction season.
