Planning and Zoning
Hearing Slated for September 26: Mayor
Douglass said he and the Building Commissioner met this month to discuss going
forward with changing the building code from BOCA 1999 to the 2003 International
Building Code. This and several
other items will be heard September 26 and the recommendations brought to the
Aldermen for their vote on October 3, 2006.
Mayor Douglass announced that a draft of occupancy permits and occupancy
inspections should be ready this month for the Board’s review.
Further stating that if we had these in place, we could avoid some of the
difficulties with which we are currently dealing.
Alderperson Schultz stated that since the maintenance of the Clarkson
Road berm was handed over to Forest Hills Club Estates, they made further plans
to take over maintenance of the southern-most corner of property at Forest Club
Drive and Clarkson Road. He said
that through investigation, they found the property on that corner belonged to
MoDOT, who has no problem with their maintaining it.
