At the St. Peters Planning & Zoning Commission [P&Z] meeting on June 3, the first agenda item under Old Business was the rezoning request discussed at the P&Z meeting on May 6. At that meeting, P&Z had considered a proposed rezoning of 9.09 acres of land at 724 Spencer Road, known as the “Dallavalle Tract.” P&Z voted 5-4 [with two members absent] to send the rezoning request to the Board of Aldermen with a recommendation of denial.
When the June 3 P&Z agenda item was called, the chairperson noted that the developer, Luetkenhaus Properties, had withdrawn the rezoning request from both the board and P&Z. The commission members then voted unanimously to formally withdraw the request.
Current zoning of the Dallavalle Tract is A-1 Agricultural. In May, Luetkenhaus Properties had requested rezoning to PUD – Planned Urban Development, in order to build Park Place Townhomes, a proposed residential development with 49 units on one street with a cul-de-sac. The townhomes would be sold individually, along with the land each unit occupied.
Contacted directly by Mid Rivers Newsmagazine, developer Bill Luetkenhaus said he intends to revise the site plan and discuss it with area residents, just as he wanted to do before the COVID-19 pandemic thwarted his meeting plans. He said he will re-submit his revised rezoning request and site plan in late summer or early fall when everything is ready.
