A Message from the Mayor

The following message is reprinted from the most recent issue of City News (PDF).

Another Year Gone By
     Another year is coming to an end. This time of year seems to go by so quickly because there is so much happening. It is a good time, however, to take a few minutes to look back at this past year. As always, a lot has been happening in Saint Charles this year. We have continued working on many road projects. I hope you have had a chance to drive down Droste Road to see the
beautiful improvements to that area. That is just one of many projects that have been completed recently.
      The Prop P projects are showing progress across the City as well. I hope this summer you were able to enjoy the newly renovated Wapelhorst and Blanchette Aquatic Centers. We had
record attendance and the new amenities were well received. Again, THANK YOU for your support of Prop P that made the projects possible, as well as so many stormwater projects across the
City that are being completed.
     In addition, we continue to see new business growth all around the City and we are pleased to welcome all the new businesses to our area.
     I hope you and your family are able to get out and enjoy all Saint Charles has to offer this holiday season. Whether you come down to Main Street for Christmas Traditions, shop at our many
unique shops for the holidays, or take in a show at the Family Arena, Foundry Art Center or the J. Scheidegger Center for the Arts at Lindenwood, get out and enjoy!
     Then, we are looking forward to continuing the celebrations into next year for the 250th Anniversary of the establishment of our great City. As you can read in this issue, there are some great things in the planning stages for the celebration and we lookforward to sharing our rich history and heritage with everyone.
     Stay tuned to our website and social media for all the details as webegin 2019. We hope you will join us in celebrating our Sestercentennial. After all, "If It's Happening...It's Happening In
St. Charles."



Sally A. Faith, Mayor
