It appears, from the agenda for the upcoming council meeting, that Richmond Heights city officials may be willing to work with developer Joseph Cyr who has asked for tax abatement for his planned apartment complex at Dale Avenue and Boland Place.
At the February 22 Richmond Heights council meeting, city officials gave Cyr a six-month extension to break ground on his planned apartment complex. Later in the meeting, in closed session, Cyr told the council he needed tax abatement to make it possible.
One of the items in the city manager’s report for the March 6 meeting is: “Preliminary Funding Agreement – between P & M Holdings, LLC – for Residences at Boland Place.” See the full 3-6-17 council agenda.
Demolition has begun on the site.
City Manager Any Hamilton is also scheduled to give an update on the Joint Fire Command Staff cooperative study.
Under the plan proposed last year, the fire departments of Brentwood, Clayton, Maplewood, Richmond Heights and Rock Hill would each have their own fire departments and fire stations, but would share a joint fire command staff structure.
