   A group home for people with eating disorders is getting the go ahead in Town and Country.  

   The Board of Aldermen Monday night unanimously approved a conditional use permit for a McCallum Place residential treatment center in a single-family home the 13,400 block of Conway Road.  

   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the city had little say over the plan because it met with conditions set by state law.  

   The home, which sits alone on 18 acres near Maryville University, would serve up to eight people.  The paper reports that other than some striped parking spaces, there would be no changes to the site.

   McCallum Place operates other eating disorder treatment facilities in Webster Groves and Kirkwood.

   One more obstacle to the proposed Ellisville Walmart is out of the way.  An appeals court has sided with the developer after a resident had sued the city for issuing a conditional use permit to for construction of the 155,000 square foot retail store.  

   Thomas DeBold had sued claimed that city officials had ignored resident's concerns and that the Walmart will negatively impact traffic, overtax utilities and city services.  Circuit Court Judge David Lee Vincent had sided with the city, and the appeals court upheld Vincent's ruling.  

   But it may be too little too late, since the permit expires September 5th and the Ellisville City Council last week declined to extend it.

   The development of a new Walmart in Ellisville will move forward despite the developer's failure to win a permit extension from the city council.

   Walmart’s director of public affairs Chris Neeley told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that the extension was sought to give the builders breathing room, but that the company will continue to work to see the project through.  

   Sansone's current permit runs out in just over two weeks. 

   The Ellisville City Council voted 3-3 Wednesday night to deny Sansone Group's request for a 180 day extension of a conditional use permit for construction of the project. 

   The Post reports that Mayor Adam Paul, whose campaign for office was based on his opposition the tax-supported project, and Aldermen Linda Reel and Mick Cahill rejected the request.

   Aldermen Matt Pirrello, Cindy Pool and Roz Acup backed the extension.

   Alderman Gary Voss was absent.
