COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT BLOCK GRANT - HOME IMPROVMENT PROGRAM

Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) – The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Community Block Grant program provides annual grants on a formula basis to entitled cities and counties to develop viable urban communities by providing decent housing and a suitable living environment, and by expanding economic opportunities, principally for low- to moderate-income residents.

The City entered the CDBG agreement on September 1, 2021 with the St. Louis County Office of Community Development. The brochure and agreement can be found within the packet. The requirements that must be met by the City are also included within the packet. It is an extensive list of requirements.

The City will participate in the Home Improvement Program (HIP) program. The program provides financial assistance and technical advice to qualified homeowners for system upgrades, repairs and replacements necessary to maintain minimum housing code standards. The Community Development Block Grants are part of a Human and Urban Development (HUD) program that offers funding to counties with a population greater than 200,000. Of the $5,000,000 annual allocation, the City would be eligible for $20,000.

The funds could be used to help low to moderate income homeowners make repairs to owner-occupied homes. These include roof repairs, plumbing, electrical work, and tree removal. He noted that things such as painting and replacing windows and doors are not covered. If the resident remains in the home for five years, the loan would be completely forgiven. There would be a pro-rated debt if the resident moved sooner than five years.

Funds are limited to $5,000 per household and recipients may only participated in the program one time. To qualify, homeowners must be current on mortgage payments and property taxes, and gross household income from all occupants must meet federally established low-moderate income guidelines.

According to HUD, the Median Family Income for St. Louis County is $97,200. For instance, the Income Limit Category for Low (80%) Income Limits for a family of 4, as per HUD, is $75,900. A table is available within the meeting packet.

Missouri American Water -- Water Line Replacement Project


This Project will affect all streets in CLP eventually. The first CLP streets will be East Drive and Divot Drive. This project will start on Monday October 17th.


They are replacing the water main along East Drive and along Divot Drive (from the cul-de-sac to the dead end.) They will excavate the west side of Divot and the east side of East Drive. This will be a 6-foot wide excavation. Steel plates will cover up the holes when work is not being performed.


The main replacement will be done in 2 weeks or less, but hooking up the meters and the service lines will take much longer: a couple of months depending on the weather. The new meter pits (your new water meter) will be 5 feet off the back of the curb.

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: LOCK IT OR LOSE IT – 9PM ROUTINE!


We are encouraging residents to take steps to protect their property and prevent crime by not presenting crimes of opportunity. This is to serve as a reminder to lock your vehicle doors and remove any valuables, even when parking in your driveway.

Criminals look for easy targets. You can make it more difficult for them by following the #9PMRoutine! Many vehicle burglaries, and to a lesser degree, stolen vehicles, occur as a result of vehicles being left unlocked. Criminals walk through neighborhoods, trying vehicle door handles, hoping to find an unlocked vehicle. The best way to prevent vehicle burglaries is to remove all of your valuables, lock your vehicle’s doors upon exiting and take the keys to the vehicle inside your residence.

The Frontenac Police Department strives to promote active participation amongst residents to report suspicious activity when it is observed. The public is a valuable partner in the prevention and solving of crime. We ask the residents of the City of Crystal Lake Park to be aware of any suspicious activity and to report it to Police immediately. If you observe something that seems suspicious, we ask that you call 911 or the Non-Emergency Number @ 314-737-4600 so an officer can be dispatched to investigate.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED


The City of Crystal Lake Park is seeking volunteers to serve on the Board of Adjustment (BZA) and Planning & Zoning/Architectural Review Board (P&Z/ARB). These boards only meet if an application has been filed with the city or when there are agenda items to address. If you are interested in serving on either board, please contact the city administrator, Angela McCormick at city.administrator@crystallakepark.org or 314-993-1160.

BOARD OF ADJUSTMENT (BZA)

The BZA meets on the 4th Thursday of the month, but only if there are Variances or other issues to address.


Board of Adjustment (BZA)--The Board consists of five residents of the City and three residents who serve as Alternate members. All are appointed by the Mayor and approved by the Board of Alderpersons. The BZA hears appeals from City residents who have a unique property adjustment request. When a resident wants to build a new building or add on to an existing building and the property does not comply with the planning and zoning code, the person may file an application for a Variance. The Board meets on the fourth Thursday of the month, but only when a Variance request has been submitted. Members are appointed to five-year terms by the Mayor with confirmation by the Board of Alderpersons.


The standards for granting variances are: the variance requested arises from a condition which is unique to the property in question and which is not ordinarily found in the same zoning district, and is not created by an action or actions of the property owner or the applicant; the granting of the variance will not adversely affect the rights of adjacent property owners or residents; if the variance is not granted, the property owner may suffer extreme hardship or severe practical difficulty; and the variance desired will not adversely affect the public health, safety, order, and convenience, or general welfare of the community. The BZA will not grant a variance unless an application is filed addressing, in writing, all of the variance standards.


The Board of Adjustment is scheduled to meet on the fourth Thursday of the month; however, there will be no need to meet until there is a request for a Variance from our current building codes. For information regarding the BZA please contact Ellen Rottjakob (314-488-6043).
