   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.

   A 150 unit luxury senior living center proposed on a 12 acre site at Clayton and Mason Roads in west St. Louis County is unlikely to happen.

   The Town and Country Planning and Zoning Commission  Wednesday night voted unanimously to turn down a proposal by Allegro Senior Living.  

   About 200 people had attended the meeting and dozens spoke against the project.    Most cited concerns over traffic and property values.  

   The zoning commission will recommend that the Board of Alderman reject the project.  They'll list "no evidence" the community needs such a facility among their list of seven reasons.

   This is the second proposed senior housing development to cause controversy in St. Louis county recently.  The other is a low-income development already under construction along Telegraph Road in South County.  Opponents are trying to get county officials to halt that project.

A hearing is scheduled for tonight in Ballwin to determine the future of an indoor shooting range.

The American Arms and Supply Company will ask the zoning commission to change the city codes to allow for the indoor range to be built on the site of a former Rothman Furniture.

The Planning and Zoning Commission meeting will be held at the Ballwin Golf Course Clubhouse starting at 7 p.m.
