At at recent Manchester Board of Aldermen meeting, aldermen voted 6:0 to move forward with a plan for Henry Avenue road repairs.
As previously reported by Patch, aldermen plan to apply for a federal grant in conjunction with the City of Ballwin for repairs to Henry Avenue. The road runs through both Manchester and Ballwin. The majority of the road runs through Ballwin with an approximate 62/38 percent split, according to Manchester City Engineer Ed Blattner.
The two cities will likely apply for an East/West Gateway Grant in February 2013. Blattner said the grant, if awarded to the cities, would go toward projects, including street overlay, stormwater and sidewalks. The project is estimated to cost $2.48 million for the approximate 11,300 feet of the road, which is a little over 2 miles and runs between Clayton and Manchester roads.Blattner said the grant only covers 80 percent of design and construction costs. The two cities would then have to fund the remaining portions of their part of the project with Ballwin picking up the larger portion of the tab due to the location of the road.
If approved in 2013, Blattner said the earliest work could begin on Henry Avenue would be in 2014.
Aldermen also voted 6:0 on moving forward with the the development of a new neighborhood on Manchester's Hanna Road. As previously reported by Patch, the just south of Parkway South High School. The small subdivision would sit on the approximate four acre site which currently has one existing home. The development is being built by McBride and Sons and is called The Arbors at Hanna.
