You can print out the petition form and take it to neighbors, family, friends and business owners.
- Anyone can sign the petition, provided they are at least 18 -- voting age -- even if not registered.
- They can reside anywhere, but Maryland Heights residents are especially wanted because they VOTE. Park users come from all over the region, over one million of them each year, according to the St. Louis County Parks Department. People who use the park should have a say in something that will affect their experience so dramatically.
- Yes, you can go door-to-door without permission from City Hall. You are not soliciting, not selling anything. You are simply a neighbor trying to inform another neighbor about something that will affect them directly.
- Some people may ask, "Don't landowners have the right to sell to whomever they want?" YES they do! But that does NOT mean that the buyer can put up whatever they want. Your neighbors can't sell their house and put up a tavern or establish a goat farm. That would be against the city's planning code. In the same way, Maryland Pointe is not consistent with the city's planning code. They want an exemption.
- If anyone wants more detail, tell them to call our number and we will be glad to go more in-depth.
