New Customer Service Form Allows for Anonymous Comments to City
A new customer service form, the Neighborhood Caretaker Alert form, is now available to residents who prefer a hard-copy form and/or one that is anonymous to notify the City of problems or issues of importance. The new form, which allows residents to communicate concerns, is an extension of the Citizens' Action Center, accessible here on the Website. The hard-copy form, which includes a unique tracking number and two copies (one for the resident and one for the City), will allow residents to make anonymous comments and then check the Website, on this page, using their tracking number, to follow up on the outcome of their concern or complaint. The forms may be picked up at City Hall, the Kirkwood Community Center, and the Kirkwood Public Library. For additional information, please call 314-822-8506.
Public Comments Are Invited on Emmenegger Park
The Missouri Department of Conservation is inviting public comment regarding Russell E. Emmenegger Nature Park (in Kirkwood) and Possum Woods Conservation Area to aid staff in developing a 10-year management plan. Interested persons or groups, including recreational users, neighboring landowners, conservation groups, elected officials, and government agencies, are invited to view the proposed management plan at mdc.mo.gov/areaplans. The plan includes a link for supplying comments and input.
The plan will remain available for public comment during the entire month of August. The public comment period for the Russell E. Emmenegger Nature Park and Possum Woods Conservation Area plan will close August 31, 2014.
Russell E. Emmenegger Nature Park and the adjacent Possum Woods Conservation Area provide 134 acres of natural area for Kirkwood residents to enjoy. The nature park provides expanded interpretive and recreational opportunities in a riverine environment. Visitors can traverse through diverse natural communities, such as dolomite glades and woodlands, and riverfront forests. MDC and the City of Kirkwood share in the operation of the park through a management agreement between the two agencies.
The first step toward the redesign of street lighting for downtown Kirkwood happened last week at a Design Charette conducted by Ross & Baruzzini. Click here to download a copy of their presentation. To read the notes from the Charette, click here. Additional public meetings will be scheduled.
