Boarded up apartment building sparks fear in Ellisville
ELLISVILLE, Mo. (KPLR) – An apartment building in Ellisville that is on land that could be part of a controversial Wal-Mart project has been boarded up.
Residents in the area fear it is a sign of things to come.
“I also live on land that could be part of the project, and I am on social security, so I do not want to have to move,” Michael Hoff said.
Ellisville Mayor Adam Paul has been against the project from the start.
“I said this was going to happen,” he said. “People are going to get pushed out of their homes.”
Some apartment building owners said that they did not know if they were going to sell, but that the boarded up building is a bad sign.
However, Ray Massey, who is an “associate” of the building owner, said the board has nothing to do with the project.
