Warson Woods Board of Aldermen Meeting April 15, 2014

Notes courtesy of Pat Flood

Warson Woods Board of Aldermen Meeting April 15, 2014 -- 
Next Meeting May 20, 2014  7 p.m. City Hall

A reporter from the Webster Kirkwood Times was in attendance. You are encouraged to go to their website to read more about these issues.

The Mayor welcomed approximately 40 people to the meeting.  He said that the entire Board was glad so many citizens wanted to participate.

1. St. Matthew’s Update:  It was reported that the initial “stakeholders” meetings had taken place with the Consultant to get an idea on what citizens wanted to happen to the property.  Six such people were interviewed. A citizen said that at the last meeting the Board had agreed to enlarge this number but the Mayor said that if that had been agreed to it had not happened.  Two or three “living room” sessions have also taken place with residents hosting meetings in their homes to get citizen feedback. People are invited by the home owners to these meetings. There is no public notification.  It was hoped that such a meeting could take place in Ward 4 soon.
 Again the main concern among citizens was the lack of information available to citizens, especially on the website. The Aldermen stated that they would try to get more info out including minutes of the living room sessions.  A citizen asked when the “oversight committee” called for in the Consultant’s contract would be meeting and would the public be able to attend.   The Mayor said that the Board was the oversight committee and that it would meet in open session.  The St. Matt’s development would also be discussed at the planning and zoning committee meetings.   It was noted that the time period for looking into possible development options set out in the memo of understanding with Grace Episcopal, the successor to the St. Matt’s property, is nearing an end. A citizen asked if there had been a  traffic study and was told there was no need for one at this time.
It was also reported that someone from Grace had come and removed shrubbery from the St. Matt’s property leaving holes that could be a danger.  The City will look into this.

2.  Discussion of  banning the parking of  commercial vehicles on the streets:  The city attorney presented three options for discussion on this topic. The Board was not ready to discuss this matter and continued it to the next meeting.  It was hoped that the options would be put on the website so everyone could familiarize themselves with them before the May meeting.

3.  Street Repair:  The City is entering into a contract to repair damaged slabs soon.
