Jefferson County residents oppose construction of new apartment complex

JEFFERSON COUNTY, Mo. — Jefferson County residents are upset about county officials’ plan to build a new apartment complex near Arnold.

The project will propose a 150 unit apartment complex near the town of Arnold. Residents said the county had not upgraded infrastructure to accommodate the new project. They said the streets were too narrow and the sewers weren’t big enough to handle more people.

The Jefferson County Planning and Zoning Department has not yet voted on the project, and the first vote will take place Thursday. Residents said they would be present at the meeting to try to get the measure resolved.

The city of Arnold also has concerns about the project. Arnold City Manager Bryan Richison said Jefferson County did not notify the city of the project. He said city officials found violations of fire codes because streets were narrow to adequately support fire engines.

If the Jefferson County Planning and Zoning measure passes, it would next go to Jefferson County Council.
