We need your ideas and help to make our 5th Annual Trivia Night a great success on Saturday, Feb. 4, 2012!
We spent down a large portion of our reserves this fall with mailed notices and educational outreach on the Maryland Pointe development skirmish with Planning & Zoning.
Now we need to refill the coffers so we can continue to fight when Maryland Pointe developers bring their initial design plan to the city.
Our first planning meeting for Trivia Night will be featured at Second Saturday this weekend. We're looking for volunteers to organize, publicize, solicit prizes from local businesses, and help us run the event. We also need supporters to recruit players for the fun evening we have in store.
It doesn't matter if you have experience or not, we're all in it together. Sharing our knowledge and having fun!
Save It, Don't Pave It! Here's how you can help:

Look for our Logo Sign:
At our monthly Second Saturday community meeting yesterday, Ward 2 Council member Kim Baker and Ward 3 Council member Chuck Caverly discussed development options near Creve Coeur Park with residents. Caverly spent about a decade on the Planning Commission; while Baker is new to some of the issues, her husband, Darrell Baker, has been a Planning Commissioner at least as far back as 2008.
What would, for example, a Wal-Mart store in Howard Bend do to businesses along Dorsett and McKelvey? How do we avoid a new retail center from sucking under business from other parts of Maryland Heights? Is it possible to attract unique stores, not available elsewhere in the metro area? Something that adds to the area, rather than just moves business-as-usual around?
Pay close attention to these issues and discussions, as they will affect the future of Maryland Heights as we know it.
Join us this Saturday morning 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.
We'll be discussing the city's planning scenarios for the McKelvey Dorsett area and what it means to be a "sustainable" city. Or -- whatever else is on your mind! Maryland Heights just celebrated its 25th anniversary; what would you like to see in the next 25 years?
Join us the Second Saturday of every month to discuss the latest development news affecting life in Maryland Heights.
