Yes. However, at some point, as the City’s projects progress, the City may contact you and seek to acquire rights in your property (either ownership or easement rights).
The City does not necessarily know which properties have flooded over the years and which have not. You should ask the current owner about historical incidents of flooding. You may also find the following websites helpful. (The St. Louis County site is an interactive map which has layers showing 1% Annual Chance, also known as 100-year, and 0.2% Annual Chance, also known as 500-year, regulatory flood zone locations.) Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Flood Map Service Center (allows regulatory flood map lookup by address)St. Louis County (“Special Flood Hazard Areas” and “Other Flood Areas”)
Maps showing the preliminary designs of the projects are subject to change.
The notice excerpts a Missouri statute describing your rights. See Section 523.250 RSMo. You may also contact the Missouri Office of the Ombudsman for Property Rights for more information.
No, neither the City nor the City’s attorneys can give you legal advice. You should consult a lawyer of your own choosing to help you understand the condemnation process and what rights you have.
Manchester Road, or Highway 100, is a state highway controlled by the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT). MoDOT is responsible for much of the upcoming work along Manchester Road, including its resurfacing. The City is improving and beautifying Manchester Road in Brentwood at the same time, so the City has overlapping projects with MoDOT. It is possible that you may be contacted by both representatives of the City and MoDOT at some point.If you have questions about the Manchester Road Project, please contact Jenn Becker at MODOT, 314.453.5099.
The specific location of your parcel is critical to solving the flooding issue that has been problematic for the City for decades. Stormwater flooding has inundated the Manchester & Hanley intersection and properties in the area 26 times since 1957 creating significant public safety issues and property damage.The City has been working with its engineering firm, Jacobs (formerly CH2M), to implement the designs to solve the flooding problems along Deer Creek affecting Manchester Road between Hanley Road and South Brentwood. The plan is a combination of improvements to the channel, levees, and overflow areas to hold excess water in periods of flooding. All or part of 22 municipalities contribute nearly 37 square miles of watershed into the segment of Deer Creek that flows through Brentwood, which is also a fairly flat section of the creek.Map of the contributing watershed and location of the Deer Creek Flood Mitigation Project:
The City of Brentwood currently has funding to perform the Deer Creek Flood Mitigation Project - Phase 1 and the Manchester Road Improvement Project.
The project timelines are listed here.
It is a six-month period that began on July 16, 2018, during which the City will not accept, consider, or act upon rezoning applications, variance requests, or conditional use permits that would change the current, actual use of property in the area.
More information: Ordinance 4845
The City is exploring the redevelopment of the area and studying land uses to determine what land uses should be encouraged in the area in the future.
No. Even if the City changes future land uses in the moratorium area, as long as you continue to use your property for its current use, without interruption, your current use will be “grandfathered” in to the plan.
The current owner or landlord is responsible for arranging a housing inspection. After the unit has passed the inspection, the new tenant or owner completes the application for Residential Occupancy Permit and pays a $45 charge. The application must be completed and payment must be made before the permit certificate is issued. If you are financing the home purchase, most lenders will require you to have the occupancy permit prior to closing the loan.
You make a structural change in the building (e.g., you want to move a staircase).
You make a change to the light and/or ventilation (e.g., you want to make a window smaller or larger).
You want to change the ingress/egress of the unit (e.g., you want to close off a door to the outside).
Yes. Please arrange for an appointment by calling 314.963.8612 or email email@example.com.
Fire pits and contained-backyard fires are permitted within the City of Brentwood within these conditions: You may not burn trash; open burning other than for recreational use requires a permit (from the Planning and Development/Building Department at City Hall); the burn area cannot be larger than 3 feet in diameter and 2 feet high (if not contained within a fireplace or BBQ grill); recreational fire must be attended at all times with a garden hose or fire extinguisher present until fire is completely out. Additionally, recreational fire must be at least 25 feet away from area combustibles and structures; any fire-spread condition must be eliminated, and open burning may not endanger any adjacent property or structure.
As long as you have an updated occupancy permit, all you need to do is stop by The Heights with your driver's license or other photo ID and an unpaid utility bill. If you need to make changes to your occupancy permit, stop by the Planning and Development Department at Brentwood City Hall.

If the problem lies outside of the house, between the house and the sewer main, a service man will open the line temporarily, and advise the City of the blockage. The City will then TV the line to verify the location of the blockage, and will either cable the line with a heavy duty cabling system, or excavate and replace the damaged or blocked pipe section. We will not excavate until we have the underground utility lines located. This normally takes 2 or 3 days. In most cases, you will have use of the sewer line during this wait. The repair is done at no charge to you. The City is not responsible for replacing any landscaping disturbed during the repair process. We will fill the excavation with compacted topsoil and sow grass seed. We will return in a few months if the dirt has settled, and you call to report the settling. This call should be made to Jim Nahmensen at 963-8643. If the blockage is determined to be in the sewer main (operated by MSD), they will be notified and will clear the pipe of any blockage, again at no charge to you.
