Delmar Gardens Update: P&Z Decision Delayed To November 19

The city says the developer wants more time to pour over an evaluation of their traffic study.

The Creve Couer Planning and Zoning Commission's decision on granting Delmar Gardens a change in zoning to move forward with a plan for single family housing along with assisted, skilled and independent living facilities on 28 acres will not come prior to November 19.

Monday, the city's Director of Community Development, Paul Langdon, told Patch that Delmar Gardens requested a continuance for the November 5 meeting so it could review and respond to a city traffic consultant's review of Delmar's traffic plan for the project. 

Langdon said in an email that the city's report was not yet complete but was expected "any day," and would be made available to the commission at the same time it is made available to the public, sometime later this week.

Residents in the area have spoken out against the proposal because of the traffic it would generate, along with concerns that the project would damage the residential character of Ladue Road.

City planners have praised elements of the project but have said it is not in keeping with Comprehensive Plan's goals for the city and does not meet the standard necessary for rezoning the property.
