A 150 unit luxury senior living center proposed on a 12 acre site at Clayton and Mason Roads in west St. Louis County is unlikely to happen.
The Town and Country Planning and Zoning Commission Wednesday night voted unanimously to turn down a proposal by Allegro Senior Living.
About 200 people had attended the meeting and dozens spoke against the project. Most cited concerns over traffic and property values.
The zoning commission will recommend that the Board of Alderman reject the project. They'll list "no evidence" the community needs such a facility among their list of seven reasons.
This is the second proposed senior housing development to cause controversy in St. Louis county recently. The other is a low-income development already under construction along Telegraph Road in South County. Opponents are trying to get county officials to halt that project.
