County Council to Consider Oakville Development Tonight

CLAYTON, Mo. (KMOX) – A controversial low-income senior housing development in Oakville comes back before the St. Louis County Council Tuesday night.

A few weeks ago, the County Planning Commission denied a request to halt the project, saying it understands residents are concerned that they weren’t properly notified about the construction but the location is ideal for seniors because of access to public transportation and grocery stores.

Now the County Council will have an opportunity to derail the plan or take the commission’s recommendation and let construction continue.

The concerns of residents include increased traffic, trash, and the complex’s fence being feet away from the fence of a school.

Halting the project could cost St. Louis County a lawsuit from the developer, National Church Residences, but residents opposed to the project have vowed their own lawsuit if it continues.
