A Message from the County Executive: Community Organizations

This post was originally published on this site

I recently attended a fundraiser for a non-profit organization in our community and was reminded, again, how fortunate we are to have so many organizations in St. Charles County that help those in need. From adults and children with disabilities, resources for troubled youth, assistance for those with housing needs, and food pantries, to programs for helping individuals with social, educational and financial challenges, our county is truly blessed with so many organizations and individuals who help others.
While many, if not all, of the organizations have their own fundraisers to supplement the costs of their programs, staff, supplies, etc., and while many are eligible for funding from state and national grants, you, through St. Charles County Government, assist as well.
More than 40 years ago, St. Charles County voters approved a tax of up to 16 cents per $100 of assessed property valuation to provide community-based programs and support for citizens with developmental disabilities. Staff of the Developmental Disabilities Resource Board of St. Charles County (DDRB), along with a nine-member board of directors, oversees funding from the tax – making certain that money is being spent appropriately, and in the best way possible, so that those who need assistance are fully included in our society. The DDRB does this by providing funding to agencies in St. Charles County that serve individuals with developmental disabilities, and by providing case management to individuals 16 and older.
Similarly, in 2005, voters approved a 1/8-cent sales tax to fund the Community and Children’s Resource Board of St. Charles County (CCRB). The CCRB Board provides funding to non-profit organizations in St. Charles County that programs that impact children’s mental health, outpatient children’s substance abuse treatment, and/or the prevention of child abuse and neglect services.
With this funding, and through volunteers and donors who give time, talent and gifts to all of our organizations, we are making a difference in the lives of so many of our citizens. This is just one of the many reasons St. Charles County is a great place to live, and just one of the many reasons I am proud to live and lead this great community.

Amenities to Enjoy at Riverside Landing

This post was originally published on this site

I’m so excited that the County park in my district – District 6 – has become popular with boaters and campers! Riverside Landing is located at the confluence of Dardenne Creek and the Mississippi River and is the perfect spot for launching your choice of watercraft for recreational boating, fishing, kayaking or canoeing. It’s also a great place to camp!
The St. Charles County Parks Department has done a tremendous job with this park, and Parks Director Ryan Graham tells me the number of visitors is increasing and the park is becoming extremely popular. Since May, the park has had 530 visitors either camping or renting watercraft! In August alone, 94 rented canoes or kayaks and 91 used the park’s camping facilities!
The boat ramp, with a nearby scenic overlook plaza, provides free access to the Mississippi and the Dardenne and serves as an entry point to the newly opened Dardenne Creek Blueway – the first phase of a five-phase Blueway plan for St. Charles County. Kayaks and canoes can be rented at the iPaddle Station located in the park and taken for a 3.5-mile ride from Riverside Landing to 370 Lakeside Park in St. Peters.
The Parks Department has added amenities for those who love the out-of-doors. Parking is available for 59 boat trailers, and the 7.73-acre park has 13 large and five small campsites with electrical hookups and a dump station for RV sanitary lines. A playground for kids recently was completed.
I was at the park in May when the Blueway opened and had the opportunity to tour the waterway, so I can attest to the beauty and peacefulness of this park and its surroundings. Check it out! You’ll be glad you did!
