Members of the council were for the bike-walk master plan, but said it needed work.
A majority of the seats were filled at the University City City Council meeting Monday night for a hearing and council discussion about a citywide bike-walk plan. Trustees of two of the largest subdivisions in University City–University Park and University Heights Subdivision No. 1–had problems with the 90-page Draft University City Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. Bike routes proposed by the plan run through the subdivisions, but no one from either were notified. Morton Hyman from University Heights Subdivision No. 1 and Dennis Fuller from University Park were concerned about liability and cost if the plan went through. Second Ward Councilwoman Paulette Carr said neither trustees of the private subdivisions or University City …

To see impact of new developments in the area.
The University City City Council approved a measure Monday directing City Manager Lehman Walker to see an RFQ (request for quotation) to do a comprehensive traffic and parking study in the Delmar Loop and surrounding neighborhoods. The idea was proposed by Councilman Michael Glickert and was approved 5-0. Mayor Shelley Welsch and Councilman Byron Price were not at Monday's meeting.

A citizen's questions for the University City CIty Council.
Thursday, May 17, 2012
At the May 14 meeting of the City Council of University City it was obvious that city officials still don't have answers to many questions about the proposed Loop Trolley, a project that could have a significant impact on both the Loop and the city. The Cross County MetroLink Extension Project should serve as a warning for what can happen with these projects. Though not on the same scale, it demonstrates how so many things can go wrong. The extension, from Forest Park to Shrewsbury, started at a cost of around $325 million and then went to around $550 million when the tunnels and other costs were added. After many more problems were encountered, combined with a considerable amount of incompetence, the construction cost went to $675 …

The University City City Council voted to turn the lights back on Monday.
Over a year after the lights on the driving range at Ruth Park Golf Course were turned off, the University City City Council voted Monday to reverse that decision. The lights were turned off after residents near the University City driving range complained that they were too bright. Before the policy change, the range lights would stay on until 9:30 p.m. The council voted 4-3 to turn the lights back on while the Park Commission and Traffic Commission review a report on additional options for the driving range. The issue was raised by Ward 1 Councilman Terry Crow. Michael Glickert, Stephen Kraft and Mayor Shelley Welsch voted against the measure.
