City Calendar Notice/Agenda

Agenda With Details/Drawings/History of Structures

In Lafayette Square Historic District, 7th Ward, 1025 Dolman @ LaSalle – Construct 2-Story Single-Family House – Staff Recommends approval with conditions

In Lafayette Square Historic District, 6th Ward, 2201-45 Hickory @ Missouri – Construct 14 Single-Family Houses – Staff Recommends approval with conditions

In Benton Park Historic District, 9th Ward, 3315 & 3327 Missouri – Construct 2-Story Single-Family house; complete alterations to adjacent single-family; construct various site improvements including garage & parking pad between the properties – Staff Recommends approval with conditions

In Benton Park Historic District, 9th Ward, 2864 Lemp – Appeal of Administrative Denial to construct 2-Story Two-Family building – Staff Recommends overturning Administrative Denial with conditions

Also on Agenda (see Agenda for details )…

3 Appeals in Central West End, all in 28th Ward

National Register Nomination for Standard Stamping Company Factory @ 2000 N Broadway, Near North Riverfront, 5th Ward

National Register Nomination for United Railways Spring Avenue Substation/Trouble Station @ adjacent Rumbold Park, Jeff-Vander-Lou, 4th Ward

And the Agenda includes the legally required notice for closed session…

“Roll call vote in open session to hold a closed meeting pursuant to the following: Proceedings involving legal actions, causes of actions or litigation or confidential or privileged communications with attorneys or auditors as provided by Section 610.021 (1)RSMo. and/or Section 610.021 (17)RSMo.”

I do not recall ever seeing that on Preservation Board Agenda. It’s one of the most transparent government entities, possibly most, in City: agendas posted online way in advance of meetings, very detailed agendas, meeting minutes posted online.

I’m told the Closed Meeting is required to receive updates from City Counselor’s Office and Cultural Affairs Staff on lawsuits to overturn decisions by Preservation Board.
