    Saw this on Facebook... Good work!

    If you pull it, you use it. If you pull it and you don't use it, you've done some thing wrong and you might not get another chance. Think about it before you pack it!

    With th enumbers of OCers in the STL area this is a can do! Some one would need to go to MODOT and do the leg work.
    Go for it if you are willing. Again, a few of us talked about it but no one would step up. You'll have to do it all....

    I emailed MoDot over the weekend and the lady in charge of the Adopt appears to be on vacation until the 15th. I'll wait to hear back.

    It looks like they provide all the materials. I will have more info when I get a response from them!

    Figures the Adopt lady comes back from vacation just as turkey season starts...

    I'm sure she will respond during the week. Will keep y'all posted. Just curious how many others would join me.

    I think it would be a good thing to do this where OC is legal. That leaves a few of the places here in Wildwood and Chesterfield OUT!

    CREVE COEUR/LADUE ARE HALF WAY POINTS BETWWEN NORTH AND SOUTH COUNTY AND NOT TOO FAR FOR ST. CHARLES PEOPLE TOO!

    Examples:
    MO 100 (Manchester Road) (Adoptions only between the Franklin County Line east to Ruck/Strecker Rd) NOT LEGAL
    MO 340 (Olive / Clarkson) - Not legal in Chesterfield. Olive in Creve Coeur would be OK
    Route BA (Babler Park Drive) - Wildwood - NOT legal)
    Route CC (Wildhorse Creek Road) - wILDWOOD OR cHESTERFIELD, not LEGAL
    Route D (Page) - Maryland Heights/Overland - NO GO!
    Route T (St. Albans Road) - WILDWOOD - NOT LEGAL


    MY CHOICES - MO 109 - Eureka is good! (MY VOTE) Not Wildwood!
    Route AB (Ladue Road) Between MO 141 and I-270 - IF IN CERVE COEUR LEGAL - My vote
    Route F (in the Pacific, MO area) - LEGAL AND GOOD FOR ME
    Route JJ (Ballas Road) (Between Conway and Country Aire) - PROBABLY CREVE COEUR, NOT SURE
    I'd volunteer happily, but I'm not happy about driving up to North County. You'll find we have a lot of people who won't do the drive either North or South.
    I'd probably be there anyway, but it has to be an OC friendly City or NO GO, what would be the point?

    I'll look for others to make their cases...

    thanks, the OC was kind of implied but i should of said so.

    i think a central area would be the best. lets focus on that. i will email her and see if she can narrow down the list for creve coeur and ladue

    Sounds like a plan. It would also give us a lot of visablility in west St. Louis Co. I know this will take a while to get rolling, and that's OK!

    mid St. Louis county is a bit of a drive for me. can we do it in Ste. Genevieve or St. Francois counties?

    but seriously, something tells me that the pick up fun will be on the weekend and that doesn't fit with work for me. or i guess i could roll solo on a Monday.

    It is but you must have a CCW permit from the state or from another state that Missouri recognizes.


    A. A person commits the offense of unlawful use of weapons if he/she knowingly:
    6. Openly carries a firearm or any other weapon readily capable of lethal use within the City limits;

    Subparagraphs (1), (6) and (7) of Subsection (A) of this Section shall not apply to any person who has a valid concealed carry endorsement issued pursuant to Sections 571.101 to 571.121, RSMo., or a valid permit or endorsement to carry concealed firearms issued by another State or political subdivision of another State.

    She is checking with the maintenance super for a go-ahead.

    I am looking at the intersection of Ladue and Royal Gate Drive. The cleanup would go westward, but it should not go past the county line into Town and Country.

    You can go here http://maps.stlouisco.com/propertyview/ and view the property lines.

    I will hear back Monday and go from there. This would be a 3 year contract so ya'll better show up!

    I've glaired over the map, can't see Royal Gate. Can you give us a better idea where Royal gate is in reference to a bigger street?
    How long of span would clean up entail/wher would it end?

    If you get the go ahead we'll get people via the Facebook/OC site. They better show up, we have more than one way of getting OCers to cooperate!!!!
