Shopping Development In Maryland Heights Under Question
MARYLAND HEIGHTS, Mo. (AP) — Plans for a big shopping and entertainment center near Creve Coeur Park in northwest St. Louis County have hit a roadblock, with city officials saying the proposal is contrary to Maryland Heights’ comprehensive plan.
The city’s community development director, J. Wayne Oldroyd, told the Planning Commission Tuesday that it could either approve the plan with changes, deny it, or change the city’s comprehensive plan.
The commission could decide at its meeting on Oct. 11.
About 40 people showed up for the meeting. Some are worried the development could ruin Creve Coeur Park, and that the region already is oversaturated with shopping centers.
