A Message from Mayor Moeller - April/May

On May 9, the City of Maryland Heights will turn thirty-seven years old. Much like a human approaching the “over the hill” mark, I believe in our past years of being a city, we have learned a lot about who we are and how we function.

    One example of an annual tradition that has grown throughout the years is WorldFest. Originally named “Celebrate the World: An International Arts Festival,” this event first took place at the old Community Centre on February 17, 2002. A crowd of approximately 2,000 people visited the Centre that day to experience international culture and cuisine. This was the first event hosted by the newly established Cultural Arts Commission - a group of citizens/residents that are appointed. The members of our commissions are not compensated and utilize a lot of their time attending meetings. The folks that serve our community on these commissions and boards provide us with a great source of informed opinion and public participation to help shape our policies and programs. The success of WorldFest is directly related to the City’s creation of the Cultural Arts Commission and for that we are grateful. If you are interested in applying for a Board or Commission, please click here.

You may have noticed that our newsletter has also received a much needed face lift. We are excited for the new layout and would like to remind everyone that the mail delivery of the newsletter will now be on a bimonthly schedule. If you would like to get monthly news from the City, please sign up for our E-Newsletter at marylandheights.com/mhlife. Let our Communications Division know what you think of the new layout by dropping them an email at mhlife@marylandheights.com.

Now that Spring has officially sprung, it’s time to get out and experience all that Maryland Heights has to offer! Read all about WorldFest here and don’t miss the opportunity to meet your local police officers at their Open House on May 14. More information about this event is here

Happy Spring!
