On Monday, June 11, the City of O’Fallon officially withdrew its proposal to annex the nearly 7,000-acre August A. Busch Memorial Wildlife Conservation Area – a move that would have been necessary for the city to achieve its intended goal of annexation of the Missouri Research Park.
The controversy over the proposed annexation peaked while O’Fallon officials raced with their counterparts from nearby Weldon Spring to approve competing involuntary annexation proposals. These proposals are aimed at attracting corporate relocations to the Missouri Research Park area located in St. Charles County. Apparently, unlike O’Fallon, Weldon Spring could annex the Research Park without having to also annex the Busch Conservation Area.
Following additional discussions regarding the difficult road ahead of them in attempting to annex the Busch Conservation Area – an area currently owned and administered by the state – O’Fallon officials announced their decision to withdraw their proposal. NRA and the region’s hunters and sport shooters applaud this decision that will preserve this pristine wildlife conservation area for current and future generations.
