ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. (KMOX) – An emeregency ordinance introduced during Tuesday night’s meeting of the St. Louis County Council would seek to restore some of the greenery that’s already been removed for a proposed 40-acre ice hockey complex.

The measure’s sponsor is council chairman Sam Page, who initially backed the ice plex measure but has since changed his mind on the subject.

“I don’t support the ice complex as it’s been proposed in Creve Coeur Lake Park,” Page confirmed while speaking with reporters following the meeting. “I regret that I supported it in the beginning, but this is where we are.”

Page admitted that a strong show of opposition during a meeting late last month in which more than 100 people addressed the council helped to sway his opinion about the proposal.
