Integrated PlanningFacilitated Discussion ResultsStella, Missouri

November 17, 2006

1 options variety
1. Options/Variety

  • Provide different kinds of housing and housing locations

  • Market rate housing seems appropriate – the may not be a big need for low-income housing – affordable housing is important

  • Be sure to accommodate the housing needs of current residents

  • Water accessible views

  • A variety of housing prices is appropriate – intermix housing types

1 options variety1
1. Options/Variety

  • Higher density housing in prime locations – access to community features (the creek) open to everyone

  • A more commercial district near the creek might be best. Too much dense housing near the creek could impair access.

  • Elderly folks may be interested in condos or apartments – make it handicap accessible

  • The community wants to attract folks to live their that are willing to make an investment and have pride – not transients

  • Ranchettes seem good – block housing

2 long range changes to infrastructure
2. Long-Range Changes To Infrastructure

  • Gray water systems, sewage systems evolution in the long run

  • Sports courses and public areas can be irrigated with gray water (water from sinks and showers)

  • This area of Missouri is classified as “sensitive” because of the Karst nature of the geology and thin topsoil layer – the community should be educated on appropriate care and use (MDNR can help/regulate)

  • Consider septic system alternatives

2 long range changes to infrastructure1
2. Long-Range Changes To Infrastructure

  • Wind turbines – perhaps the city to own – some people oppose – must be beneficial to land owner – what are impacts to wildlife?

  • National Renewable Energy Laboratory has information and resources on applying wind turbines

  • Crowder College is planning tests to see if wind energy if feasibility

3 development strategies sequences phasing
3. Development Strategies/Sequences/Phasing

  • Allow flexibility for the community to grow (or shrink) over future generations

  • Strengthen riparian corridor, fields, parks, Frisbee golf

  • Start tree planting in areas that are not actively grazed - be cautious of grazing and foraging animals damaging trees and plants – fences may be required

  • Cattle need water, but ranchers know to limit access to the creek to avoid erosion

3 development strategies sequences phasing1
3. Development Strategies/Sequences/Phasing

  • Make improvements now

    • Use existing resources to create a youth center/”hang out”

    • Housing: fix up existing houses, increase density in core area

    • Consider interim uses of existing housing

    • The school needs housing for teachers

3 development strategies sequences phasing2
3. Development Strategies/Sequences/Phasing

  • 25% tax credit available for upgrading historic buildings

    • Must be eligible

    • Tax credit on income

    • Credits can be sold

  • Taylor Tax Service upgrade as a good example

4 additions changes improvements
4. Additions/Changes/Improvements

  • What will happen to Ozark Street if the walking center is created?

    • Stella residents recall a cohesive downtown block

    • Ozark Street does have historical significance

    • Consider creating two “fronts” to the store

    • Maintain Ozark Street look, but it will serve as access.

    • Downtown on Ozark Street has no view of creek

    • Parking on Ozark Street can be a problem

  • The Senior center is somewhat separate from the town

  • History – use hospital site centrally

4 additions changes improvements1
4. Additions/Changes/Improvements

  • “Don’t tear down the Historical Society Building” – a concept that is important to the residents

  • New development and maintaining history are not mutually exclusive, but phased changes can get managed

  • Where’s the service station – near the parking lot?

  • Where’s the hospital/clinic?

  • The old hospital site could be a water bottling business or housing or ??

  • Have both – walking area and the main street

  • Consider a wheel-spoke design – easy to get to shops, etc.

5 implied changes to local administration
5. Implied Changes To Local Administration

  • Who’s going to help the city government implement this?

  • The city has a great “committee” – good, educated people

  • The city just needs time

  • Intermediate step – have clear vision to guide development and get County to agree that proposals for development will go through Board of Trustees to meet the vision.

  • Form a beautification team of local residents and work on one property at a time to improve the look of the community

  • HUD money may be available through the state for façade upgrades, energy efficiency, etc.
