Timing could influence trail vote

Great River Greenway (GRG) has given the city of Maplewood until April 30 to decide if it wants to be a part of its trail system in St. Louis. The election to fill the vacant Ward 1 seat is April 3.

After Maplewood told GRG it would proceed with the group’s plan for a trail along Greenwood Boulevard, with stipulations, and GRG said the city’s demands forced them to pull the plug on a $1.6 million federal grant — GRG gave Maplewood until April 30 to agree to the plan, for next year’s budget.

If the council considers GRG’s proposal after the election — if it does at all — the new council member could swing the vote.

Running for the Ward 1 seat are: Owen Skoler, Kyle Oberle and Sandi Phillips.
