Meramec Aggregates is seeking a conditional use permit to mine sand and gravel near St Clair, Missouri.
This is the third time since 2014 that Meramec Aggregates has been before the commission. This time, however, it is for a different site.
In April 2014 the company sought a permit for property just north of North Virginia Mines Road near St Clair. That permit was denied by the commission.
Late that year, in November, Meramec Aggregates provided a more thorough application for a permit for the same site that the plan board approved in April 2015.
This new request is for an approximately 180-acre site less than a mile north of River Bend Road. Meramec Aggregates is proposing to use 10 acres on the site.
