Memorial Walkway Dedication

Memorial Walkway In May 2010, the City of Kirkwood dedicated a Memorial Walkway in memory of the public servants who lost their lives on February 7, 2008. The Walkway is located along the north perimeter of Kirkwood City Hall, adjacent to the train tracks. A plaque for each individual, along with a lighted pole and nearby bench, were dedicated for Mayor Mike Swoboda, Police Officer Thomas Ballman, Police Sergeant William Biggs, Councilmember Connie Karr, Councilmember Michael H.T. Lynch, and Public Works Director Kenneth Yost.

Street Tree Planting Request Form:
Having trees on the street and in right-of-way areas is a great way to provide cooling shade for on-street parking, which reduces the heat island effect and auto emissions and can help with stormwater runoff.  Learn more about that here, in this "Benefits of Street Trees" article from the Arbor Day Foundation.  The City and the Urban Forestry Commission would like your input on where to plant new street trees.  Please click here to fill out the Street Tree Request form.
