A contractor testifying that a proposed Mansard roof overhang was costing Club Dog owners more to build, and debate over a stone facade, sent the plan back to the Chesterfield's Architectural Review Board Monday night.
The city's Planning Commission voted unanimously, 8-0, for the return. There was debate over the placement of decorative stone around the building.
General contractor Pat McLean said he was filling in at the last minute for the Club Dog project architect, who couldn't make the city meeting.
"Why does it have to have a Mansard, across the back, when none of the others in the area have it," McLean asked the commission. He said it cost more to build.
A planning commissioner who was familiar with the Architectural Review Board discussion responded.
"They just flat didn't like the roof," Commissioner Robert Puyear said.
Commissioner Micheal Watson moved to send the project back for review, while the contractor said he didn't want to hold up the project.
The contractor left the public hearing prior to the Commission's vote. The city inspects construction on projects periodically, officials said.
Club Dog is to be located in Spirit Trade Center, zoned a "light industrial district." It's a half-mile southwest of Chesterfield Airport Road and Trade Center Boulevard.
A resident described Club Dog as a kennel.
