Save Longview Farm Park
We, the residents of Town and Country, are opposed to the city's plan to cut down old-growth trees and pave over green space to build 17 additional parking spaces at a cost of nearly $100,000 in Longview Farm Park.
Although the park was dedicated less than 10 years ago, the city has already reneged on its promises to keep the park passive by building a massive farmhouse addition it plans to use as a commercial banquet center and has already expanded the existing parking lot size at least twice with no halt in sight to the continuing encroachment of the small, 30-acre neighborhood park.
At a public hearing last April, residents were overwhelmingly opposed to building an additional parking lot, yet the city plows ahead with its plans to pave over the park. We oppose the use of taxpayer funds for this development and we will send this petition to the St. Louis County Municipal Park Grant Commission and urge them to deny giving the City of Town and Country any of our funds to continue building on our park land.
