According to the Maryland Heights City Planner's Report dated November 4 Pacific Development has filed an application with the City of Maryland Heights to develop Maryland Pointe. 

Maryland Pointe is a request for a Planned District on a 191 acre site on both sides of Maryland Heights Expressway, north of River Valley Drive. Over 1,400,000 square feet of regional retail development is proposed.

The City Planner is in the process of analyzing the consistency of the request with the Comprehensive Plan and Zoning Code. Once that analysis is complete, a hearing on the Conceptual Development Plan will be scheduled. This hearing is expected to occur in January.

Please visit our new Facebook Community Page, Maryland Heights Residents for Responsible Growth.  Along with our website we hope to keep members of our group and the community updated on happenings in the greater Maryland Heights area.

Join us this Saturday morning, Nov. 13, between 9:30 and 11:00 at the St. Louis Bread Company in Westport Plaza for the next in our continuing series of community meetings.  Rob McLean, editor of the soon-to-launch Maryland Heights Patch website will be our special guest.  He’s looking to meet area residents like you, find out what’s on your mind, what you would like to see in local news, and learn about area organizations and activities.  Scout groups, church members, neighborhood leaders, business owners, residents of every description – all are welcome to stop for 10 minutes (or more) and meet someone who can help you get your message out.

If you are unfamiliar with Patch, check out one of the sites recently launched in our area, Chesterfield Patch.  A project of AOL, Patch sites are cropping up around the country as websites focused on providing local news and information – filling a gap in media that has occurred with the decline of print newspapers around the country, and certainly locally.   If you don’t go online for news now, Patch just might change your mind.
