FENTON, Mo. – After recent landslides, residents of a Fenton subdivision said they don't want any more development in the area. But on Thursday, the Jefferson County Planning and Zoning Commission approved a new, neighboring subdivision.

Residents in the Winter Valley subdivision were worried about a mudslide getting bigger. They wanted the problem fixed and asked members of the commission to make sure others don’t have the same problem.

Homeowners and representatives of Rolwes Construction of St. Louis addressed the commission at Thursday's meeting.

And although the planning and zoning commission approved the development, construction is subject to a final vote by the Jefferson County Council.
