A volunteer effort led by Shane Hoxworth, Travis Evans, Alderman David Hoffman, Kathy Hamre and Ruth Smith created a wonderful environment for a community event that showcased our residents and unity. Sean and Katelyn Hamre set the festive mood by honoring us with a sample of their musical talent. Residents provided a variety of delicious food that was enjoyed by all.
Congratulations to the co-winners of the Volunteer of the Year award Katie Pfoehler and Jeannie Bruns who were honored for 25 years of service working on the islands and plantings around the fountain.
The following residents received Most Improved House awards from our Building Commissioner Paul Doerner: Huey Hawkins, Travis Evans & Shane Hoxworth, Joseph & Erica Pagano, Joseph Forrestine and Jan Jenkins. Mr. Doerner came-up with this idea as a way to honor residents who have made significant improvements to their homes this year.
In the spirit of the season, our selected charity - The Little Bit Foundation, received cash donations of $340 as well as clothing and supplies for the area children that they serve. Pasadena Hills resident Teresia Simmons will be delivering these gifts to the foundation later this week. If you were not able to make a donation yesterday and would still like to contribute, please drop-off your gift at City Hall Tuesday morning or Thursday morning.
On behalf of the volunteers, employees, appointed officials, elected officials and the City of Pasadena Hills - Happy Holidays and New Year. I hope the holiday season brings you closer to family and friends.
As you may know, our community has been awarded a $277,500 grant from the Parks Commission for improvements to Roland Park.
This grant will allow us to restore the pond to a depth that will prevent growth of unsightly and smelly algae and will also provide funds to rebuild the decking which has deteriorated and reached the end of its lifecycle. The purpose of the Parks Grant program is to create community gathering spaces so some funds will go towards satisfying those requirements.
The pond committee will be hosting a Town Hall Meeting on Thursday, February 19th at 7pm at Jefferson School to discuss the grant and answer any questions or concerns about the project. I apologize for the short notice but we are on a very tight schedule – all work associated with the grant must be completed by December 31st. Following the Town Hall Meeting, there will be a Special Meeting of the Board of Aldermen which will include a proposal to authorize the use City funds to get started.
I hope to see you there. If you are unable to attend but have questions or concerns, please include them in a reply to this email or drop them by City Hall before Thursday. I will reply by email to any emailed queries and will also read and provide answers at the meeting so everyone can be informed.

This year, the city of Pasadena Hills was one of 5, 24:1 municipalities to receive an award of up to $10,000 from the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) through its Tree Resource Improvement and maintenance (TRIM) cost-share grant program for a community tree inventory. Beyond Housing wrote grants in coordination with 13 municipalities for this year’s TRIM grant cycle. 24:1 refers to the 24 communities within the boundaries of the Normandy Schools Collaborative Geography for one vision of strong communities, engaged families and successful children. 24:1 is a place-based community initiative convened and facilitated by Beyond Housing. As part of this initiative, a majority of the 24:1 area municipalities are working together to provide more effective and efficient service delivery.
As a result, this year Pasadena Hills will receive $3950 from MDC with a match of $2513. Our match may include efforts made by members of this community working on our common areas. The grant is to enable us to have an inventory of the trees conducted in our public areas and provide a detailed summary of their condition. The grant money includes a 3-year subscription to the TreeKeeper 7.7 software to maintain the data that will better allow for effective forestry management. Next year, we will be in a position to apply to MDC for tree maintenance grants.
TRIM is a competitive grant that helps communities provide safe and healthy trees. Investment in trees provides lasting improvement in cleaning the air, soil and water. The participating municipalities jointly bid the work to make state and local taxpayer dollars go farther. This year, Beyond Housing estimates the municipalities saved close to $60,000 by bidding this and other grant-related the work together.
Many thanks to 24:1 and Beyond Housing for their efforts to bring Pasadena Hills, Bel-Ridge, Northwoods, Norwood Court and Wellston together to help ensure the natural beauty of our neighborhoods.
The inventory of our trees will begin in early March. Davey Resource Group will be conducting the inventory and you may notice arborists gathering data into mobile devices. All employees of Davey Resource Group will be wearing identification badges as well as fluorescent vests. They will be working only on public trees.
We anticipate they will be in our area no longer than 5 days. They will give us a 2-day lead time prior to starting the inventory.
Please extend a warm welcome to these arborists but understand that they have a limited amount of time to do a very large amount of work.
Our municipal court administration is now handled through the City of Normandy. For information about traffic/court related issues, please call 314-385-3300.
