MARYLAND HEIGHTS, MO/March 17, 2017 (STL.News) Plans are in the works to build a new Quik Trip in Maryland Heights.

The proposed development is still in the zoning process with the Maryland Heights Planning and Zoning Committee. The plan calls for building the Quik Trip at 12200 Dorsett Road. A public hearing on this QT proposal is expected in April.

If approved, there’s no word yet on when construction would begin.

Meanwhile, efforts continue for plans to develop the Maryland Park Lake District. City officials have created Stakeholder Advisory Committee. The goal of the committee is to determine the best use of the 2,000 acres of land along the Missouri River. Los Angeles Rams’ owner Stan Kroenke was one of the developers interested in the project. Last year, Kroenke and business partner, St. Louis attorney Alan Bornstein, withdrew their offer in the development.

Maryland Heights City leaders revived efforts for the development of the Maryland Park Lake District after development proposals received last year did not meet the City’s vision for the area.

“Our partnership with the Stakeholder Advisory Committee provides the City access to the best expertise and planning tools available to make the Maryland Park Lake District the best it can be,” said Wayne Oldroyd, Community Development Director for the City.

“While there will always be concerns about any re-use of this area, we believe the greater public good will be served by making this area a premier catalyst for regional growth and development. And with all key stakeholders at the table, we believe the public will get behind our approach and our vision for this area.” added Oldroyd.

The Committee is tentatively scheduled to hold its first public meeting in the spring. The City anticipates its plans for the Lake District will be completed by late 2017.

More information about the proposed development of the Maryland Park Lake District is available online at www.mplakedistrict.com.
