SHILOH – The Shiloh Board of Trustees approved rezoning 26.44 acres of property from R-2 and B-3 to multifamily. The approval came in a somewhat confusing and contentious meeting.

The Savannah, a luxury residential apartment complex, proposed by developer Crevo Capital, asked for the rezoning. Conditions, in an amendment to the final motion to approve the rezoning, include having only 300 total units, which would then allow for some of the buildings on the east side of the project to be two story and not three, additional fencing and screening on the rear and southeast sides abutting adjacent property, and a public utilities stub for future connection to Hideaway Hollow.

As relating to traffic concerns, when 100 units have been leased, the proposed traffic light at Tamarack Lane and Cross Street will need to be installed and operational before any more units can be approved, and construction traffic must enter and exit from Old O’Fallon Road.
