The St. Louis County Planning Commission voted to recommend approval of a new multifamily complex in unincorporated Fenton at its executive session this month.

The commission voted 6-2 at its March 6 executive meeting to recommend approval of a plan for multifamily residences at 1719 and 1725 Smizer Station Road, 63026, calling for 19 2-story residences with 44 parking spaces. The petition is in the Rockwood School District and 3rd County Council District of Councilman Dennis Hancock.

According to petitioner Azur Meskovic, the target group of renters for the units would be young professionals and would rent for $2250 to $2500 per unit.

The commission held a public hearing on the petition Feb. 13.
