O’Fallon has an inter-governmental agreement with Lake Saint Louis to establish the South Ridge Shoppes on Old Route N, which currently dead-ends in a field.
To support the agreement, O’Fallon Ward 3 council members Dale Kling and Nathan Bibb sponsored Bill No. 7200 to authorize city staff to assist with the acquisition of land, rights-of-way and easements to extend Old Route N to the southwest, link it to Sommers Road and open up the area for better traffic flow. Funding will be covered by Lake Saint Louis and the developer, South Ridge Shoppes LLC.
The bill was passed by a vote of 10 – 0 at the July 9 City Council meeting.
