The Jefferson City Council heard zoning requests that would lead to a Dairy Queen restaurant and a hotel locating in the city at a meeting Monday night.
Action on both requests will be on the agenda when the city council holds its regular monthly meeting at 6 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 27, at the civic center.
At the work session Monday, the council heard a request from David Gillespie for two variances to locate a Dairy Queen on Hwy. 129 and Panther Drive. Gillespie is asking to reduce the 50 feet of required corridor buffer to 25 feet and for seven additional parking spaces to be allowed.
In other zoning requests, Jefferson Hospitality Inc. is asking to annex 0.94 acres at 5221 Hwy. 129 North to locate a hotel and retail shops. No one was at the work session to speak on this request but it is expected to be acted on at the Oct. 27 meeting.
