Dielman Road Improvements (80% Federally Funded for ROW & Construction)

The City applied for Federal Funds for Dielman Road Improvements in February 2019 and learned that the application was successful. The City executed a program agreement with MoDOT, then hired CMT to perform the engineering for the project after following a Qualifications Based Selection process.  City Council approved the engineering contract with CMT at their April 27, 2020 meeting and design has been underway since that time.  Dielman Road is one of two remaining roads identified for sidewalks in the 2012 Sidewalk Implementation Plan.  Six-foot-wide sidewalks will be installed on the west side of Dielman between Ladue Road and the northern municipal boundary near Tamarack.  Improvements to the pavement will also be part of the project.  The sidewalk will connect to sidewalks that have been installed in Olivette on Dielman Road.  Federal Funding will pay for 80% of the right-of-way and construction costs.  The design phase began with survey in Summer 2020, environmental clearances were obtained in March 2021, and preliminary plans have been prepared and were submitted to MoDOT on March 31, 2021.  The well attended public meeting was held on July 13, 2021 at 4:00 pm. The right-of-way plans were submitted in September 2021 to MoDOT for approval  and have been approved.  At the December 2021 City Council meeting, the agreement for easement acquisition with OR Colan was approved.  Easement acquisition is in process and there are twelve properties with easements.    Construction is scheduled for 2023.  The City’s Project Manager is Anne Lamitola,


Deer Creek Preserve; formerly known as Edie’s Mulch Site

The City applied for and obtained a Municipal Park Planning Grant to develop a master plan for the 12.5-acre site which is currently being utilized as a transfer station for the City’s leaf and mulch program on approximately 3 acres of the site.    Public meetings were held in 2019 along with a community input survey and a Master plan was adopted by City Council in September 2019.  The master plan for the property includes a trail and a small parking area as priority amenities.  The property is located off S. 40 Drive and is along the Deer Creek corridor.  The property is currently being impacted by MSD’s Deer Creek Sanitary relief sewer project which will be under construction through May 2023.


The City applied for and was successful in obtaining funding through the Municipal League to begin development of the priority amenities.  The City entered into an agreement with the Grant Commission in December 2021 and also entered into a design contract with SWT for the project design.   The survey phase has been completed and preliminary design ha begun.   Construction implementation will take place in Calendar Year 2023. The City’s Project Manager is Anne Lamitola,
