TURNBERRY STORMWATER IMPROVEMENT PROJECT (P-2)

Cost: $100,000
Contractor: Lamke Construction

Completed: The Turnberry Stormwater Improvement Project was the first storm water project completed with Proposition P funding. Completed in October 2013, the project stabilizes eroding drainage channels that discharge stormwater into the Turnberry detention basin. Storm sewer pipe extensions were installed in order to stabilize erosion at three locations where existing storm sewers discharge into the basin. The erosion was so severe that ends of pipes had fallen off into the drainage ditches. Check the slideshow below to see the overview map with photos of the project.

PARKS PROJECTS

 

 

 

Story in Summer 2014 My Hometown magazine printed in May 2014

 

 

 

St. Peters’ Proposition P was approved by more than 68% of voters in August 2012, and in January 2013 the City started collecting an extra four-tenths of a cent sales tax on purchases made in St. Peters. 

 

Because of Proposition P, visitors to our Senior Center are playing cards and eating lunch at brand new tables, and working out on some new fitness equipment. 

 

Over at the Rec-Plex, swimmers and divers in the natatorium receive information on a brand new state-of-the-art scoreboard, and skaters can appreciate the new sound system in the ice rink.

 

The Parks Department does a great job providing a place for our residents to relax and play. And, now, thanks to Proposition P, our Parks staff is busier than ever.

 

A new scoreboard and field lights have been installed at the football field at Brown Road Park, and children visiting Shady Springs Park get to enjoy new playground equipment.

 

Field 18 at City Centre Park has new sideline turf along with an irrigation system. The soccer fields at Woodlands Sports Park received lights on fields 2 and 3, and parents will be grateful for a much-needed restroom facility to be built near fields 26, 27 and 28 in the northwest portion of the park. A new restroom with concession stand is also planned for Sports Center Park.

 

Thanks to Proposition P, 370 Lakeside Park is continuing to grow. An archery range is now complete at 370 Lakeside Park with both ground and elevated archer positions open to the public.

 

Construction began on the corporate pavilion complex at 370 Lakeside Park along with additional parking. Our talented City staff takes on as much of the work as possible on the projects throughout our parks and recreation facilities. This helps to keep project costs as low as possible.

 

These parks projects are just the beginning; there are plenty more to come.

Proposition P Approved by Voters;

Stormwater & Park Projects Coming Soon

Story from September 2012 UpFront newsletter

 

City of St. Peters leaders are anxious to deliver on our election promises after the Proposition P ballot measure was approved on Aug. 7, 2012, by more than two-thirds of St. Peters voters (68.1%). (Download the election results. Proposition P is on page 25 of this PDF document.)

 

In January 2013, the City of St. Peters will begin collecting an extra 4-tenths of a cent sales tax to tackle critical stormwater management projects and make improvements to our extensive parks and trails system. This new source of revenue allows St. Peters to issue $40 million in bonds previously passed by voters to fund stormwater projects.

 

The following is a list of the initial stormwater projects we will tackle, and when you can expect them:

 

  • Country Creek retention basin (fall 2012)
  • Canyon Creek detention basin (fall 2012)
  • Crown Colony detention basin (2013)
  • Henry Street storm sewer (2013)
  • Enwood detention basin (2013)
  • Applewood detention basin (2013)
  • Country Crossing & Country Crossing Estates stream stability & riparian renovation (2013)
  • McClay Valley retention basin (design in 2013, construct in 2014)
  • Pegasus Farms stream stability & detention basins (design in 2013, construct in 2014)
  • Englewood stream stability & riparian renovation (design in 2013, construct in 2014)
  • Crescent Hills & Springwood stream stability & riparian renovation (design in 2013, construct in 2014)
  • Misty Valley, Orchard Hills, Spencer Creek East, & Carrington
  • Estates stream stability & riparian renovation, culvert replacement (design in 2013, construct in 2014)
  • Highlands & Highland Estates Stream Stability & Riparian Renovation, Detention Basins (design in 2013, construct in 2014)
  • A few projects were added during the discussion with residents leading up to the Proposition P ballot issue. Those projects will take place in 2013 in the areas of Church Street to Grand Teton, Country Lake Estates and Turnberry Gardens.

 

This is just the beginning. Right now, we’re targeting 100 stormwater management projects costing $119 million so that we can address erosion, pollution and flooding issues, and meet federal regulations to make our streams “swimmable and fishable.” Even waterways that aren’t in poor condition need constant upkeep so that we don’t have the same problems in the future.

 

For parks, the first round of improvements from Proposition P funding will include:

 

  • New playgrounds at Shady Springs Park (spring 2013), Brown Road Park (spring 2014), Laurel Park (spring 2015) and Community Park (spring 2014).
  • Ball field improvements—practice football field lights (summer 2013) and new football scoreboard (fall 2012) in Brown Road Park; some restrooms for baseball fields at Woodlands Sports Park (summer 2013) and infield turf for American Legion field in City Centre Park (fall 2012); and lights at two soccer fields at Woodlands Sports Park (spring 2013).
  • Concession stand and restroom at Sports Center Park (spring 2014).
  • New natatorium scoreboard (fall 2012) and ice rink sound system updates (fall 2012) at the Rec-Plex.
  • Senior Center exercise and recreational equipment plus dinner tables (fall 2012).
  • 370 Lakeside Park improvements, beginning with an archery range (spring 2013), a dog park (first phase fall 2013, second phase fall 2015), and three pavilions and courtyard (summer 2013) with the flexibility to accommodate both corporate events and smaller groups.

 

Other proposed improvements to 370 Lakeside Park include an entrance sign to the park, more playgrounds, a second comfort station for the campgrounds, sand volleyball, an amphitheater, and a boardwalk through the park's wetlands.

 

Proposition P also will allow us to consider many more park projects in the coming years.
