June 01, 2023This past November, I expressed concerns about the explosive growth in St. Charles County, including the explosion of apartment buildings by over 300% in the past two years.
Recently, a request for rezoning was submitted to the St. Charles County Planning and Zoning Commission to develop an approximate 600-home subdivision near Frontier Middle School on Highway DD to Schwede Road. In this request, the property is being rezoned from Agricultural District to R1A (1-acre minimum lot size) and R1E Residential District (7,000 square feet minimum lot size).
For the third year in a row, the New Melle Chamber decided to recognize an individual member who has gone above and beyond in serving both the Chamber of Commerce and the community at large. This year, that person was Kyle Shell. He was surprised with this award at the NMCC Scholarship Banquet, May 18.
