Windswept Farms development would create more than 1.25 million union work hours

Eureka, MO – Jefferson County Labor Club President Chuck DeMoulin is calling on all union members to attend the Monday, Aug. 14 Jefferson County Council meeting to show support for a proposed subdivision that would create more than 1.25 million union work hours.

Windswept Farms is a 550-lot subdivision located at the intersection of Highway 109 and Highway W just south of Eureka. McBride & Son Homes and Fischer & Frichtel are the developers of the proposed neighborhood.

The homebuilders are part of the St. Louis Union Homebuilding Partnership’s Neighborhoods Built by Your Neighbors Program which guarantees work on the homes will be 100 percent union.

The County Council introduced a measure to approve a rezoning request and development plan for the 173-acre subdivision at its July 24 meeting. The bill is expected to be read for a second time at the Council’s Aug.14 meeting.

Because the development is so important to the residential union construction industry, the club has canceled its Aug. 14 executive board and general membership meetings and is asking its members to attend the Council meeting.

“This project will create over 1.25 million union man-hours,” DeMoulin said. “This is very important for our members that work in the residential industry, and it will provide great tax revenue for Jefferson County.”

The council meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Jefferson County Administration Center at 729 Maple St. in Hillsboro. DeMoulin is recommending members arrive at 5:30 p.m. to get a seat in the Council Chambers.
