You are invited to a public hearing to review and comment on the proposed route of the McKelvey Woods Trail that would link the Maryland Heights Community Center to Creve Couer Park.

Public Hearing: Proposed McKelvey Woods Trail Route
Thursday, May 6
6:30 p.m.
Maryland Heights Government Center
11191 Dorsett Road

The Great Rivers Greenway organization will present Phase I of the McKelvey Woods Trail with a proposed route for the trail. All community members and residents are invited to attend the presentation and comment on the proposed trail route.

Please support the Maryland Heights Parks & Recreation Department in creating a more walkable, bikable community by participating in this process. Your opinion matters! We hope to see you there at the first look of where the trail might go.
The St. Louis County Department of Highways & Traffic and KCI Construction Company are holding an informational session for the public to learn more about the construction project linking the Maryland Heights Expressway to Olive Boulevard. This is a key connection from the extension of Highway 141 to the Maryland Heights Expressway and the final piece of county roadway to create a full north-to-south route west of I-270.

Information Open House: Page-Olive Connector Project
Monday, May 3
4:00-8:00 p.m.
Parkway Central High School

Individuals will be given an opportunity to view construction plans for the Page- Olive Connector Project which will extend the Maryland Heights Expressway from River Valley Drive south to Olive Boulevard (Route 340), a distance of approximately two-and-a-half miles.

Attendees will be able to view exhibits showing preliminary construction information. Representatives from the KCI Construction Jacobs and the St. Louis County Department of Highways & Traffic will be available to answer questions. 

See you there!
If you have questions or concerns about the recent changes to our trash pick-up schedules and the new 95-gallon bins, plan to attend the Ward 2 community meeting on Monday, April 19, at 7 p.m. in the Maryland Heights Community Center.

Ward 2 Councilmembers Judy Barnett and Ed Dirck will lead a discussion of the new automated trash collection system. Guest speakers will be Tony Lamantia of Allied Waste and Gary Gilliam of Resource Management, the company that accepts all the city's recyclables

Residents from all wards in Maryland Heights are welcome to attend.
We invited newly elected Ward 3 Councilman Chuck Caverly to join us at the St. Louis Bread Company at Westport where we hold our monthly community meeting called ‘Second Saturdays.’  On arrival, he promised us a good 30 minutes.  An hour later, as we all extracted ourselves from the lively discussion to go on with our day, he said he looked forward to coming back.  Such is the pull of the Second Saturdays.

Caverly shared his motivation for running, his experience on the Planning Commission (where he has served 10-12 years), and some of his priorities as councilman.  Importantly, we think, one of his priorities is listening.  “Sometimes, people just want to be heard,” said Caverly.  “We have a great system [of government] where people have the opportunity to show up and tell the Planning Commission or City Council ‘Here’s what I think about that.’  And that’s great, we should be listening to everyone.”

We couldn’t agree more.  We look forward to hearing more from Councilman Caverly, and to being heard – whether it’s at Second Saturdays, the Planning Commission, or City Council.

We plan to invite other members of Maryland Heights’ government to stop by for open discussion at Second Saturdays. Please come and meet neighbors and special guests at the next Second Saturdays meeting on May 8, from 9:30 to 11 a.m., at the Westport St. Louis Bread Company.  See you there.
Please join us from 9:30 to 11 a.m. this Saturday, April 10, at the St. Louis Bread Co. in Westport.  We've asked some of our newly-elected council members to join us for one-on-one conversation.  Plus, we'd like to hear your thoughts on new development interest in Howard Bend and the city's discussion of the Page/270 intersection -- and what ever else is on your mind!
