Dream of owning land on Park Point or expanding your ownership there? St. Louis County is working to sell 73 parcels of tax-forfeited land it has acquired in the past few decades.

County has been holding all too much land in “conservation” per city request. Let’s place it back on tax rolls..

There is nothing wrong with holding land and using it conservatively. Places like Park Point are important to the region and we must be sure that development doesn’t ruin that…
At the same time, there is no sense in not using the land where it makes sense.
What I’d like to know is, where is there an open 28 acre parcel on Park Point!?

You say, “Places like Park Point are important to the region”, explain…?

I would imagine that wildlife habitat would be one reason.

I would guess an acre of land on Park Point or an Acre of land near Miller Hill Mall has no great or less relative value to animals as a whole. Some birds may prefer The Point while bears and deer may prefer the land further inland. My point is that humans really have no idea what animals prefer. They just want some land where they can be left alone.

It is likely the parcel next to the park at the end of the point. Most people think it is part of the park, but is not. They tried this a few years ago, but public dissent forced them to drop the issue. It will come up every few years until they are eventually successful.
