Readers Relay Wish List for Maryland Heights in 2013

On Wednesday, we asked what your New Year's resolution for Maryland Heights would be. Here's what you had to say.

This time of year, folks of all kinds are making resolutions. And why should Maryland Heights be any different. 

While most of you are likely vowing to shed some weight, eat healthier or spending more time with family, we wanted to know what you would change about Maryland Heights in 2013. 

So we asked—on Maryland Heights Patch and on our Facebook page. And you answered. 

Here's some of what you had to say:

Samantha Schaefer, a Maryland Heights Patch reader, said, "I would want less interference for property owners- scaled back codes, less complaining about what people do on their own property."

Eric Schneider, a Maryland Heights Patch Facebook friend, said, "A deli and shops at the vacant land behind Serras."

John Lupia, a Maryland Heights Patch Facebook friend, said, "More Bike Paths!!"

Karen Kaden McNaughton, a Maryland Heights Patch Facebook friend, said, "Improvement: better speakers at Aquaport to replace the tin can sounding ones. Resolution: still say 'hi' and sound pleasant to the multiple neighbors who keep stopping to let their dog pee on my mailbox daily...and maybe someday they'd actually stop letting their dogs do it."

I would love to have another grocery store. Going to Schnucks on the weekend or after work is ridiculous. A nice ice cream/coffee shop would be nice - nothing fancy just friendly. Regarding the comment above about more freedom, less rules for property owners - if everyone was concerned with their property looking good then I would agree but that's not everyone. I live on a street with a family that parks their cars everywhere with no concern for their neighbors. They also had a pick up truck full of trash and old remodeling leftovers parked on the street for months- total eyesore. It was like Sanford and Son lived there. Rules/guidelines are made for these people.

We need more good restaurants, not more burgers and Chinese. Shopping..I'm tired of taking my money to other communities. We have lots of land to develop stores like, Target, Shop N Save, Lowes etc.
