A popular firearms business is moving down the street a few miles to a new location. Piasa Armory has received approval for a zoning change from the Alton Plan Commission and now needs only Alton City Council approval to complete the move to a former car dealership.
The Alton Plan Commission voted unanimously in favor of allowing Scott Pulaski to relocate his business from the downtown Alton area to 3685 East Broadway, which was the one time site of the Auto Centers Nissan location and other businesses. Pulaski says he will develop the building into a firearms sales location and indoor shooting range. The Plan Commission approved a special use permit in the heavy commercial district and recommended the full council do the same. Anticipating city council approval at its meeting on September 14, Pulaski is already making the needed updates to the building, including an extensive security system, 14 lanes for shooting and updates for the sales room in the front of the building.
