Local Impact of Hoffmann Commercial Real Estate CUP21-15
Application CUP21-15 requests a conditional use permit for a helipad on the south side of Highway 94 in between Church Road and Jackson Street, next to Augusta, MO. Many local residents and organizations in the area are there because it is a quiet, rural area, zoned as rural residential. Helicopters do not fit the quiet and peaceful character of the area, and would interfere with our enjoyment of the area. The noise would cause tremendous stress, and would even drive people away. Many residents, and also businesses focused on tourists, would be harmed by this helipad.
St. Charles Co. Zoning ordinance Section 405.510(B) states: “…that the conditional use will not be injurious to the use and enjoyment of other property in the immediate vicinity….” The noise of helicopters coming and going would be injurious to use and enjoyment of other people in the area.
We are strongly opposed to granting a use permit for a helipad.
