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.

Creve Coeur City Council members urged public works staff to move forward with the safety measure Monday.
In a few weeks, drivers and pedestrians along Conway Road will notice a new device meant to ensure pedestrian safety at Laduemont Drive, even if residents in the area don't want it there. After hearing last month from residents opposed to the installation of a traffic beacon, like the one pictured here near Spoede Elementary, council members said they would visit the area and render a decision. Residents in the nearby subdivisions questioned if the device was incorporated into sidewalk construction in the area as a way of helping the city "score well" on grant applications as opposed to being something truly needed. The beacon's flashing light operates for 20 seconds when a button is pressed and then the solar-powered light shuts off. …

Request will go before the city's P&Z panel later this month.
Sometime in the not too distant future, a trip to Silky's or Jimmy Johns in Creve Coeur's Bellerive Plaza might be a little easier. The DESCO Group, owner of the property located west of Interstate 270, is asking the city to let it adjust its development plan for the site in order to add a left turn lane heading onto Olive Boulevard westbound. City Planner Whitney Kelly told Patch the proposal means getting rid of the existing median, which means adding greenspace elsewhere on the property. Kelly said under the arrangement, which would also include MoDOT, DESCO would cover the cost of new light signals at the intersection to account for the new turn signal. A representative from The DESCO Group declined immediate comment Thursday by phone…

Creve Coeur-area commuters will see smoother sailing this summer.
Trips from West County to Page Avenue and the Maryland Heights Expressway should go more smoothly after July 1.
