Festus HWY 61-67 development plans

(Festus) For several months, area residents may have noticed lots of movement, and land clearing along Highway 61-67 on the south end of Festus. One of those areas is directly across from St. Pius X High School. Festus City Administrator Greg Camp says while work to clear that area for developments continues, nothing has been committed for those lots.

Camp says the other area a little further north on 61-67 has been earmarked for a large apartment complex.

The apartment complex will not be ready for residents until much later this year or more likely in 2024.
