Webster Groves voters will now see Prop 1 on the ballot this August. Prop 1 will ask voters in Webster Groves to vote if they are for or against the amendments made to the existing zoning code. These amendments allow for additional opportunities to increase housing stock within the community.
The City Council approved the A4 zoning amendment change (Ordinance 9145) in May in effort to advance housing options for Webster Groves residents, however a petition from citizens was filed to repeal this ordinance. The Council revisited the ordinance at the June 1 City Council meeting and the vote to repeal failed by a vote of 2-5. The City Council has ordered the ordinance subject to referendum to the election on August 3, 2021. On the ballot, voters will see:
PROPOSITION 1: Shall Ordinance Number 9145, set forth by title below, be rejected?
“An Ordinance Amending Chapter 53, the Zoning Code of Webster Groves, By Amending the Use and Dimensional Regulations for Single Family Attached and Two Family Dwellings in the “A4” Seventy-Five Hundred Square Foot Residence District in Sections 53.070 Et. Seq.; Section 53.100 and Amended Definitions Related to Those Uses in Section 53.020 and Matters Related Thereto.”
A "Yes" vote is to reject the ordinance.
A "No" vote is to accept the ordinance.
