CLAYTON, MO (KPLR) – South County residents opposed to the construction of a 230-unit apartment complex made their concerns known at the St. Louis County council meeting Tuesday.

If built the complex would sit at the intersection of Tesson Ferry and Bauer Road on a lot surrounded by single-family homes.

Residents who oppose the apartment complex are worried about how much traffic it will bring to an already crowded section of Tesson Ferry, and the impact of additional students to the Mehville school district.

The St. Louis County Council voted 4 to 3 in favor of the apartment complex in a perfection vote, which means they will have a final vote on this next week.

Councilman Mark O’Leary who represents South County on the County Council voted in favor of the project.
