Yes. You do not need the City’s permission to buy the property.
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 Ryan Pearcy at MODOT, 314.453.5086.
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 and 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 Boulevard. The plan is a combination of improvements to the channel 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:

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. In January 2019, the Board of Aldermen approved an extension of the moratorium. The moratorium expired on April 1, 2019.

The City has been 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.
