Amazing Growth & Parks
St. Peters is an amazing town and I am so honored to be a part of helping it to prosper, grow, and thrive. We have a lot of great things going on here including fantastic amenities, schools, parks, resident activities and a wide range of shopping and dining venues. We also have excellent job growth here that doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. Everything you could possibly want is here. Ward 3 continues to be an area of booming economic growth. We have many businesses that have recently opened or will be in the near future. Some of these are FedEx, Amazon and Central States Manufacturing (just to name a few). There are certainly too many to name in a short article and much more to come.
I also want to talk specifically about our parks. As many of you know I am particularly fond of our gorgeous parks and outdoor spaces. Even through the flooding the Parks Department has worked tirelessly to make improvements as well as clean up from the flooding. There are some major improvements and projects that the Parks Department is working on or has recently completed. The Water’s Edge Banquet Center and Golf Club are sure to be a wonderful addition to our City. The Parks Department also completed the new playground and resurfaced and restriped the basketball court at Spencer Creek Park. Construction is expected to begin on the new accessible fishing pier at Laurel Park pond in the fall. There are additional park projects that will be going on soon as well. These new and planned projects, along with the recovery and repair efforts from the flooding this year, have kept our team very busy but the results have been wonderful for our residents. We also received “Tree City USA” distinction for the 21st consecutive years and the Growth Award for the 19th consecutive year. Before I finish for this month, I have a fun fact for you—did you know that 77 percent of St. Peters residents live within a half mile of a park or trail and 92 percent live within a mile of a park or trail. I think that’s amazing! What a wonderful place we live in—St. Peters, “My Hometown!”
PREVIOUS MESSAGE FROM ALDERMAN REIMER:
Take the Green Cup Challenge!
I’ve had the privilege these last few months of working with the St. Peters Green Team as the Alderman Representative. The team is comprised of wonderful individuals who are passionate about what our City is currently doing and what our residents can do now and in the future to keep our beautiful City environmentally clean, healthy and safe. The little things we do can have a huge impact on our community and even worldwide. The Blue Cart Crew campaign has been and continues to be very successful. We have many residents that are recycling and I am extremely optimistic that with time, more will recognize the need and follow suit.
The Green Team has been brainstorming and we are coming up with some very exciting ideas for the future. Spring is just around the corner and with that comes many possibilities of outside activities we can focus on that residents will enjoy participating in. Have you heard about the Green Cup Challenge? If you are interested in participating with others in our area to keep St. Peters clean and green, please sign up at www.stpgogreencup.org. This website will keep you up to date on what St. Peters is doing as well as connect you with people with the same desire to do their part to help. It is also an excellent resource for providing additional environmental information and ideas on what you can do (small or large) to help as well as money saving tips.
I have had many people express to me personally about their interest on this this topic and I’m hopeful that the Green Cup Challenge will be successful and helpful to our wonderful community. Please feel free to reach out to me personally if you have any questions and would like to be part of our efforts. We welcome you to be a part of the solution.
