Maplewood nuisance law meeting pulls a crowd


On Wednesday the ACLU Missouri and Equal Housing and Opportunity Council hosted a discussion on on Maplewood’s nuisance ordinance laws at the Salvation Army in Maplewood.

The law allows the city to revoke a tenant’s occupancy permit for “more than two instances within a 180-day period of incidents of peace disturbance or domestic violence resulting in calls to the police,” according to the ordinance, in part.

St. Louis Public Radio, KSDK, KMOV, 550 KTRS and Fox 2 were among the outlets covering the meeting.


  1. Does anyone know the process to get this ordinance stricken from our current local law? This is bad news for Maplewood residents. This is also bad for Maplewood’s reputation as a progressive city.
