TOWN & COUNTRY, Mo. (KMOX) — Plans for a controversial senior living community in Town and Country have been scrapped.
Allegro Senior Living LLC abruptly withdrew its plan for the $30 million project, after fervent opposition from a number of neighbors and a rejection from the Planning and Zoning commission.
The 150 unit community was planned at Mason and Clayton roads, near Mason Woods Village shopping center.
“They (Allegro) proposed a development that has a density factor and a traffic factor that just does not justify its development,” said Town and Country Mayor Jon Dalton.
KMOX News was there as the Town and Country Planning and Zoning Commission voted against the project on July 24, after a litany of residents complained.
Dalton said Monday that the development, as proposed, was not a good fit for the site, although his expectation was that Allegro would alter their plans and try again. The Board of Aldermen was scheduled to consider the development at its September 23rd meeting.
The Mayor said he expected Allegro to perhaps choose a different site in west St. Louis County.
St. Louis-based Allegro has eight senior living facilities in Florida and one in Kentucky.
