For the second time in less than two years, the St. Charles County Planning and Zoning Commission voted Wednesday night to reject the Missouri Bluffs housing development near the Katy Trail. This decision is expected to be reversed by the St. Charles County Council.

At the meeting, Dan Burkhardt of the Katy Land Trust weighed in: “The project is still in exactly the same wrong place. It will still destroy an old-growth hickory forest and place dense suburban development in a place where it’s never been before.”

The Katy Land Trust, Magnificent Missouri, the Missouri Sierra Club, TrailNet, and other local environmental groups have voiced strong opposition to the housing plan. Read the story at St. Louis Public Radio.
