Wentzville Planning & Zoning to Consider Senior Living, Daycare Facility on Highway Z

Location of new development

Wentzville’s Planning and Zoning Commission will consider a proposal to build a senior living facility and a daycare facility on 12.51 acres on Highway Z at Perry Cate Boulevard.

The Morgan School Daycare facility would occupy Lot One of the site.

Boulevard Senior Living, which includes one building for assisted living (28 studio units and 12 one-bedroom units) and memory care (16 studio units) and another building for an independent living facility (10 studio units, 40 one-bedroom units, and 80 dwelling units), would be constructed on Lot Two. The site would have to be rezoned, as the current Planned Development – Commercial designation does not allow residential uses.

Development on Highway Z

The plan includes open space, a courtyard, parking, and storm water and landscaping improvements. The applicant has requested reductions in parking and covered parking requirements as well as density. Although the city allows eight units per acre, the development plans 13.05 units per acre.

According to city documents, city staffers are waiting for a MoDOT review of a traffic impact study and more information about plans for signalization at Highway Z and Perry Cate.

Location of new development

City staff have proposed that trails internal to the development be connected to a public trails system, however, “the applicant has indicated at this time, they are not in favor of this trail connection,” a staff report said.

The applicant has also requested a lot size reduction, as the city requires that a residential planned development be at least 10 acres.

Planning and Zoning meets Tuesday, April 5 at 6 p.m. at Wentzville City Hall. A complete agenda and supporting documents are available on the city’s website.
