The expenditures encompass six projects at three facilities and include new signage, bleacher covers and a VIP deck at the amphitheater.
Parks in the city of Chesterfield are set to receive a raft of improvements this spring after the city council approved approximately $361,000 in upgrades last week. The funds will pay for a list of projects at the Chesterfield Valley Athletic Complex, Chesterfield Central Park and the city’s amphitheater: Parks Director Tom McCarthy said he was happy to receive the “thumbs up” from the city council to get started. “It’s great. These are things that we have wanted to do for a long time,” he said. One of the larger expenditures, the $75,000 bridge is an item that McCarthy is particularly glad to see approved. It will be constructed over the spillway at the northern edge of the park, completing a loop around the pond, and likely be finished …

Connie Fults and Derek Grier voted against the license at a city council meeting last week, saying that it shouldn't be allowed for a facility that primarily serves underage youth.
Chesterfield has approved an additional liquor license for the Chesterfield Valley Athletic Complex over the objections of two city council members, who said alcohol shouldn’t be sold at a venue that attracts so many underage youth. Council members Connie Fults and Derek Grier each voted against the license allowing the sale of wine at a meeting Feb. 20. The request passed 6-2 and is in addition to an existing license for the sale of 5 percent beer by the drink. “I have never voted for the liquor license down in the Valley and I don’t intend to change that course now,” Fults said in an explanation of her dissent prior to the vote. “I understand there are several tournaments that require that we have those refreshments available, but I’m …

Several big city projects are just about done at Chesterfield Central Park and the Chesterfield Valley Athletic Complex. Take a peek!
It's a big year for Chesterfield parks. Several projects that have been in the works for years will be completed in the next few months. The city's dog park at Eberwein Park should open by the end of summer. Planned improvements, including new fields and concession stands, at the Chesterfield Valley Athletic Complex are being wrapped up as little leaguers start to hit the fields.

In a brief meeting Wednesday, city council approved a zoning change that will allow an adult day care center to open in Chesterfield and several construction bids.
Plans for an adult day care center in Chesterfield can move ahead now that city council has approved a zoning change. The change, which was unanimously approved, allows day care facilities in the Four Seasons development at the corner of River Valley Drive and Olive Boulevard. Lutheran Adult Day Services plans to get a building permit to refurbish the interior of what used to be Denmark Travel and turn it into a day care service. Art Sommer, owner of Lutheran Adult Day Services, said he hopes to open the day care in April. He previously told Patch plans for the facility include installing a sports bar and an outdoor patio. The aim is for the center to feel more like a country club than a nursing home. City council also unanimously …
