Formal Protest Filed Over Delmar Gardens Rezoning Request

The project remains on Monday's Creve Coeur City Council agenda.

Formal Protest Filed Over Delmar Gardens Rezoning Request

There are new developments to report on in efforts by Delmar Gardens to have property near Interstate 270 on Ladue Road rezoned for a major assisted/independent living facility and single family housing project.

The project, which was rejected by the Creve Coeur Planning and Zoning Commission last month, is scheduled to have that recommendation heard Monday at Creve Coeur's City Council.

But according to council documents released Thursday night, residents near the proposed project have filed a protest which under state law would require the project to pass by a 2/3 majority of the city council as opposed to a simple majority.

In a letter dated Monday, December 3, Delmar Gardens Executive Vice President Howard Oppenheimer asked the city to delay any action on the project for 3 months "to allow time for the applicant to analyze and address issues raised by the Planning and Zoning Commission at the last meeting," Oppenheimer wrote.

The project was praised by several members of the P&Z panel, who said they still voted against it because the proposal was at odds with the city's Comprehensive Plan and figured to continue to be in conflict with it even if Creve Coeur leaders review and update the Comprehensive Plan in the near future.

Patch will be reaching out to city officials and Delmar Gardens representatives ahead of Monday's City Council meeting.
