The St. Louis County Council is doing something it seldom does -- reversing itself on a senior housing development already underway in the Oakville area.
The move follows an uproar from people who live near the planned 45-unit low-income apartment building in the 6000 block of Telegraph.
Last year the council had unanimously approved the development by Ohio-based National Church Residences.
Tuesday night, the county council voted 5-2 to send the issue back to the planning commission so that area residents can weigh in on zoning permits issued for the development.
Several council members who sided with the residents say they don't expect the zoning to be revoked.
