Proposition P Progress
After a long winter, construction season is finally here. And, I’m especially excited this year because we’re going to see Proposition P storm water projects move from the planning stage to the construction stage. City staff has done a lot of work to gather designs and meet with neighborhood associations to come up with projects that will greatly reshape the way that our community manages our storm water system.
Made possible by the passage of Proposition P in 2012, these storm water improvement projects will transfer the burden of care of our community’s green storm water systems away from neighborhood associations to the City of St. Peters. Our professional staff members met with residents last year to set the groundwork for this transfer.
We’ve already completed a project for Turnberry Bluffs/Turnberry Gardens at Ehlmann Road and Soenker Circle. Many more projects are expected to begin this year at Country Crossing/Country Crossing Estates, Ohmes Farm, Crescent Hills/Springwood, Applewood, Enwood, Highlands, McClay Valley, Henry Street Sewer, Homestead Estates, Pegasus Farm, Willott Square, Englewood, Country Creek, Canyon Creek, Country Lake and St. Peters Villas. As of this writing, we already awarded bids for Country Lake and St. Peters Villas, and construction should begin soon.
In all, the City of St. Peters has identified 100 storm water projects in our community costing nearly $120 million in order to fix storm water issues as well as meet federal guidelines for water quality. Passage of Proposition P in 2012 authorized a four-tenths of a cent sales tax to pay for storm water and parks improvements and maintenance. St. Peters voters previously authorized up to $40 million in bonds to pay for storm water improvements, and the Board of Aldermen has issued $4 million of those bonds so far to help pay for the first round of storm water improvements. The City is issuing storm water bonds as needed, and paying off those bonds with revenues from the Proposition P sales tax that went into effect on Jan. 1, 2013.
Proposition P is a new promise for the future of St. Peters. We’re making good on that promise to residents and meeting this challenge together!
