Maplewood city council moves forward on Burgess parking restrictions


The Maplewood City Council voted on Tuesday evening to approve an ordinance restricting parking on Burgess avenue. This ordinance will restrict parking on Burgess avenue to resident-only parking in front of three houses between 5 a.m. and 5 p.m. The ordinance will be put to a final vote at the council meeting on January 22.

The council also voted to purchase a second street sweeper, which they anticipate will help improve the timeliness of the leaf pickup.

The council additionally approved a new design for the Maplewood Square sign. This new sign will prominently feature the Schnucks logo, with spaces for six additional tenants. The issue was originally contested due to an issue with the size of the sign, but the council approved the design on the condition that the size of the other signs was reduced. Now that the council has approved it, construction on this limestone and concrete sign will begin soon.
