Each week, we highlight a vacant commercial space and ask: What business would you like to see move into this area?
We want Wentzville Patch to be a place where you can not only find out what's going on around town, but a place where you can share your thoughts and ideas with neighbors. Our newest feature—Visions for Vacancies—aims to help residents take an active role in planning and building their community. Each week, we'll highlight a vacant commercial space and ask what you would like to see move into this area? If you know of an area you'd like to see highlighted, tell us in the comments. This week, we are taking a look at the new strip mall along Wentzville Parkway right in front of Target.

Improvement project to be finished by November.
Construction crews will begin working on the Wentzville Parkway/Pearce Boulevard intersection by mid-March in hopes of completing the project in time for the new Sam's Club opening in late-October, Wentzville officials say. The city plans to spend $1.8 million to improve the intersection, which is already one of the most trafficked in Wentzville and gets congested at peak driving times. Add in the new Sam's Club and a developing hotel, which is in the works near the intersection, and the area could become a huge traffic snarl for a majority of the day. Wentzville Director of Public Works Scott Smith said additional left turn lanes will be added to all four legs of the intersection and two new right turn lanes will be added to the east and …
