   The St. Louis County Council will decide the ultimate fate of a controversial low-income senior housing complex being built in unincorporated south county near Oakville.  

   On Monday night the St. Louis County Zoning Commission voted 6-1 to recommend that the council uphold the county's 2012 approval of the 45 unit facility along Telegraph Road.  

   National Church Residences began construction on the project in May.  An NCR spokesperson says the non-profit has already spent more than $1 million on the project.

   Some Oakville residents had asked that the issue be reopened because they felt the county had failed to properly inform them of the process before signing off on the project.  

   Critics complain that the building is too large for the lot on which it's being built.  They say they will keep fighting to shut to project down.

   St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley has said he strongly favors the project.

   Oakville residents say they will take their opposition to a large, senior housing complex in South County to court if necessary.  That was the message delivered by residents who packed a St. Louis County Planning Commission meeting Monday night.  

   The three-story, low income housing project already under construction at Telegraph and Erb by National Church Residences had been approved by the St. Louis County Council.  But residents demanded county officials revisit the issue, claiming they hadn't been told about the project ahead of time.  

   An attorney for National Church Residences says construction on the project will not halt, and his clients are also ready to take the issue to court.
