About this Article

Neighbors of the proposed Corporate Reserve project on St. Charles' far west side didn't pull any punches regarding their main reason for rallying against the proposed residential development Monday night: They don't want to live next to apartments. They won't have to, as aldermen killed the project in a unanimous committee vote. The decision rejected a new version of the plan that scaled back the apartments to the smallest number yet proposed for the site.
