Missouri: Cities of O’Fallon and Weldon Spring Seeking to Annexing Conservation Areas!

Friday, June 8, 2007

Recent reports indicate that on Friday, July 6, the cities of O'Fallon and Weldon Spring are both considering plans to involuntarily annex the Missouri Research Park off of Highway 40. Earlier this week, the City of O'Fallon alerted area property owners that the city intends to annex the 700-acre Research Park, as well as the nearly 7,000-acre August A. Busch Memorial Conservation Area and a portion of the 400-acre Weldon Spring Wildlife Management Area. 

While O'Fallon City Administrator Robert Lowery, Jr. stated the city "has no plans" to alter the preserves or their programs, such a statement should not put to rest the concerns of area hunters and sport shooters. It may be true that O'Fallon and Weldon Spring currently have no intention of altering the preservation areas, however, we have learned from experience that such as policy is subject to change -- and such changes rarely, if ever, benefit hunters and sport shooters. 

As the July 6 public meetings approach, we will continue to keep you informed of any changes or to any specific action you can take to help protect these critical hunting and sport shooting resources. However, in the meantime, please contact the elected officials in both O'Fallon and Weldon Spring to let them know that you oppose any involuntary annexation proposal that includes either of these critically important conservation and management areas. 

Also, please forward this message, as well as the contact information below, to your family, friends and fellow sportsmen and urge them to contact these elected officials!
