St. Charles City Council: Submit Your Questions for Candidates

Patch will send questionnaires to the 11 candidates running in the April election for five seats on the St. Charles City Council. What questions should we include?

Eleven candidates have filed to run for two seats on the St. Charles City Council in the April 2 election. As we approach the election, Patch will send each candidate a questionnaire to help empower voters to cast their ballots for the candidates they believe in.

And we would like to include all of you in the process. 

What questions do you have for the candidates? Do you have a question about a particular issue? Or would you like to know the candidates' viewpoints on a more general question for the whole St. Charles City? 

Please share your questions in the comments section at the bottom of this article. We'll include as many as we can in our candidate questionnaire.

We ask that you please ask questions that are on point and deal with the issues — this is not a forum for personal attacks on one candidate or a specific issue.

This is your election—what information do you need before heading into the voting booth? Please submit your questions by noon on Friday, March 1.

What will you do to encourage high density mixed use development within the existing city limits and particularly along the main corridors of Main, First Capitol, Fifth, Elm, Randolph, KHwy, Booneslick, and Clark? What will you do to attract high-skill employers to St. Charles? When will you eliminate the minimum parking spaces requirement from building development codes? What will you do to improve the city's use of its creeks as water assets that enhance quality of life? Will you work for a city recreation center, as Rec Plex is only useful to people living between Cave Springs and Mid Rivers Mall? Will you push toward a form based development code so we don't end up with more suburban style garbage like University Commons and Streets of St Charles? Will you work to redevelop the massive eyesore that is bounded by Duchesne, W Clay, and Droste into a high density, city-like extension of the street grid? That's what I want to know.

I guess who ever The Missourian is, doesn't know about New Town at St. Charles.

^ I've been to New Town. It's vastly better than pretty much all suburban development, but poorly located and disconnected from the city.

What will you do to encourage development of public transportation in the county? Each city seems to have their own, but they are not connected by county services.
