Commercial development, new subdivision sent to City Council for consideration

The site plan for the proposed commercial project to be located at the northeast corner of Old Collinsville Road and Milburn School Road. The 13,100 square foot building to the left is assumed to be designed to attract a national pharmacy, such as CVS, while the 4,800 square foot building to the right is seemingly built to suit a drive-thru restaurant. Both Planning Commission officials and City Council Members both expressed concern at the thought of fast food going in on that corner considering the prices of homes in that area. City Staff assured both committees that the developer is looking more at a fast-casual type of establishment, rather than a fast-food location. (Submitted Photo)

O’FALLON – Two developments, a new subdivision and a commercial project, were considered and pushed on for review by the full City Council at the Community Development Committee meeting Monday night.

The first project submitted by developer Denny Blumberg is a 33.4 acre subdivision located along Taylor Road north of Fire Department Engine House 4. The project, known as Park Bridge Station, includes 67 lots ranging from 10,000 square feet to 48,000 square feet in size.

The portion of the project considered by the committee was only the residential component of the total site, as Blumberg will be coming back or a neighborhood commercial project on approximately 3.50 acres at the corner of Venita Road and Taylor Road.
