Fences, landscaping go in along Ballwin Schnucks perimeter
By: Kate Uptergrove
The 10-foot fences that Clarkson Crossing residents were promised in June were put into place over the last several days along with landscaping designed to shield homes on Eagles Glen Court and Cypress Trace Drive from the sights and sounds of the soon-to-be-completed Schnucks store at Clarkson and Kehrs Mill roads.
During the June 18 Board meeting, Mr. David Fontana, vice president of real estate for Schnucks Markets, presented the change of height request to the Board and noted that a 3-foot berm was required in the site development plan ordinance that was approved for the project.
At that time, he explained that there was some miscommunication with the engineers, and that a plan was submitted that did not have the berm everywhere at that height. A correction was made and the berm was raised to three or four feet throughout the project.
The fences, which sit atop the berm, are erected on the store’s property.
When the landscaping and fence project is complete, Schnucks has offered to conduct a “walk-through” with residents.
The store, described as a “boutique” market is scheduled for a fall opening, although the exact date of the opening is yet to be determined.
