Festus rezones property for future development

(Festus) The City of Festus has rezoned an area of property near the intersection of Veterans Boulevard and Highway 61-67. City Administrator Greg Camp says the area will be developed into a large apartment complex.

Camp says this development gets things moving in that stretch of town.

DeBrecht Properties is the developer behind the project and operates out of St. Louis. Camp says the process of clearing that area could begin as soon as this fall.
