St. Louis County Councilman Wants to Halt Project
ST. LOUIS (AP) - A St. Louis County councilman said he'll try to halt development of an apartment complex for low-income seniors. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports County Councilman Steve Stenger told a crowd Friday at Oakville High School he'll present a proposal to the council Tuesday to end construction on the complex.
Construction began May 16th on the building, which would have 44 one-bedroom units. The apartments are being built by Ohio-based National Church Residences, a nonprofit senior housing developer, which didn't attend the meeting.
Stenger said there was a breakdown in notifying residents about the complex. But the St. Louis County Planning Commission said it mailed 200 postcards to residents and businesses within 1,000 feet of the project, and information was posted on the county's website and at the apartment site.
