ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – North St. Louis County residents say they’re worried about what the closing and redevelopment of Jamestown Mall will mean for their neighborhood.
Residents met with St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley on Monday evening, and asked questions regarding his plan for the mall, which includes a mixture senior housing, office space and new retail space.
Many in attendance were upset and some voiced concerns about redeveloping the shuttered mall. Residents said they want security in the new plan, and not just another shopping mall in its place.
“My biggest concern I guess is, I hope that this plan that we were presented with then does not just fall by the wayside,” a resident said.
Some residents are worried stores like Target or Wal-Mart won’t be successful in its place.
“Here they are—they’re going to redevelop this, but they just opened two down in Chesterfield,” another resident said. “Once again, we’re forgotten.”
Dooley’s plan will come before the St. Louis County Council tonight.
