Enjoy Our Wonderful Parks & Rec-Plex
We hopefully have said goodbye to winter and hello to a brand new spring season. The budding of the trees and flowers offer a fresh new season to enjoy the outdoors. Did you know that our City has 25 parks that are open year-round? Our wonderful Parks Department does a great job of keeping our grasses mowed and our landscaping throughout the City award-winning!
We get rave reviews on the beautiful flowers that welcome visitors to our Rec-Plex & City Hall. Take advantage of our 24 miles of trails and our 25 parks with 1,283 acres of parkland this season & enjoy Mother Nature’s finest season.
I also want to recognize a very significant anniversary that our extraordinary Rec-Plex is celebrating this year ... 25 years! I was fortunate to be a member of the board along with Mayor Pagano, Alderman Hollingsworth and Alderman Aytes when the dream became a reality.
Two determined young teens appeared at a City Board of Aldermen meeting asking their City leaders to search for places they could go to meet, have fun and not be chased off as happened frequently when groups of youth congregated at our local mall.
Their foresight and willingness to address a need in our community led to the wonderful treasure we celebrate today 1/4 of a century later.
We have hosted thousands of events and welcomed people worldwide to our City’s crowning jewel. I hope you get a chance to stop by our Rec-Plex in the coming months. The programs are excellent and there is something for everyone no matter the age. So, happy birthday, Rec-Plex. The years have been good to you! Here’s to many, many more years of families enjoying your amazing events, classes and old-fashioned fun right here in our Hometown.
Please do not hesitate to contact me anytime with any concerns or suggestions. I am privileged to be your voice at City Hall. Have a Happy Spring … stop and smell the roses!
PREVIOUS MESSAGE FROM ALDERMAN BATEMAN:
A Great New Year!
Welcome, 2019! I imagine many of us have forgotten our New Year’s resolutions, or may still be trying to justify why starting in February is the new normal! I have to admit I promised to start eating healthier but then again March is almost here, so … I hope if you have made any resolutions that you can have the conviction to stick with it. Do not get too down on yourself if you are a slow starter as long as you make a plan. As the saying goes if you fail to plan you plan to fail. Good luck on a healthy, happy and encouraging 2019.
Homeowners Associations are very important for our neighborhoods and our community. The City wants to make sure our neighborhood associations have access to important information, so we’re hosting our first-ever Homeowners Association Seminar on Monday Feb. 11, 6:30. p.m. at the St. Peters Justice Center, 1020 Grand Teton Dr. The panel we have lined up will be an attorney discussing legal issues facing associations, City staff, and a representative from our Police Department. Many of our subdivisions have homeowner associations that govern regulations pertaining to their particular neighborhoods. The seminar is open to subdivision trustees, and hopefully they will gain some meaningful information. We are sending invitations to all of our trustees in the various subdivisions to get the word out to attend this informational seminar. Our community prides itself on our proactive citizens who take an active role in serving their subdivisions in a sometimes thankless role as a subdivision trustee. Hopefully this seminar can help our great volunteers learn from each other and discuss ideas on things that have worked for them and share their successes. Please plan to attend if you serve as a trustee or, if you know your subdivision’s trustees, please check with them to make sure they are aware of this important seminar. Or, if you are planning to possibly start up a homeowners association, you may want to attend to learn more about these topics and get contact information from the City about who to talk to when you get your group organized.
Hope to see you there at the Justice Center on Feb. 11, 2019, at 6:30 p.m. The event is in the Training Room. Parking is across the street at the Mid Rivers Mall parking lot.
