A parks and stormwater sales tax is a dedicated sales tax applied to retail sales made within city limits. All revenue is dedicated to providing funding for local parks and stormwater control in Creve Coeur.
The proposed parks and stormwater sales tax rate is ½ of 1%—in other words, ½ of one penny for every dollar spent within the city limits. For example, the additional sales tax on a $50 purchase would be $0.25. It is estimated the sales tax will generate $2 million per year.
If approved by voters, revenue collected from the parks and stormwater sales tax will be used to improve and maintain local parks and stormwater infrastructure. The City’s Parks Master Plan and Stormwater Master Plan provide recommendations for capital improvements and amenities over the next ten years.
Anyone shopping within Creve Coeur will pay the parks and stormwater half-cent sales tax, including both residents and non-residents.
The annual cost to provide services to our residents continues to increase while our revenue sources remain flat. The proposed parks and stormwater sales tax would provide a dedicated revenue source to maintain and improve city parks and stormwater infrastructure.
Adopted in 2019, the Parks Master Plan is a community-driven guide that has established priorities for improvements in city parks. Recommendations for new amenities and renovations include:
A complete list of recommendations for local park improvements is outlined in the Parks Master Plan. The parks and stormwater sales tax would provide funding to implement this plan.
The Stormwater Master Plan, adopted in 2012, identifies problem areas within Creve Coeur where excess runoff causes flooding, erosion and potential damage to properties. Approximately $13 million in future stormwater-related projects have been identified, including projects to mitigate erosion and flooding along the numerous creeks and drainageways in Creve Coeur. New stormwater inlets and similar infrastructure are needed in streets throughout the city and would be incorporated into pavement maintenance and replacement projects. With additional revenue, the City could fundamentally change its approach to stormwater management, shifting from reacting to emergencies to planning needed improvements and maintenance.
No. By law, the parks and stormwater sales tax may only be used to fund local parks and stormwater control. A special fund would be created in which all sales tax proceeds would be recorded.
Creve Coeur is one of a small number of cities in St. Louis County that has not implemented the parks and stormwater sales tax. All communities adjacent to Creve Coeur (with the exception of Westwood Village, which has no city parks) have adopted the parks and stormwater sales tax. This map illustrates which cities have implemented a parks and stormwater sales tax in St. Louis County.
If voters approve the parks and stormwater sales tax, the overall Creve Coeur sales tax rate will be at or below those of our neighboring communities.
The City’s Finance Committee, Parks and Historic Preservation Committee, and Stormwater Committee have all reviewed the plan and made a positive recommendation to the City Council.
Maintaining the city’s existing park infrastructure has become increasingly difficult, as most existing capital improvement dollars are needed for street repair and replacement, or emergency storm drainage repairs. The City will continue to utilize available grant funds to replace or repair park amenities and infrastructure, but not on the schedule envisioned in the park master plan. Little funding would be available for new park amenities absent a new revenue source. Improvements to stormwater infrastructure would be incremental as existing funding may allow.

Discharge pipes and drain outlets are required to be a minimum of 10’ from property lines and the street, if the drainage is causing issues for adjacent property, then code officials may require the minimum distance be increased.
City staff may be able to provide advice for how to resolve basic storm water problems, however it is always recommended that you contact a professional civil engineer.
No. The City does not have funds available or currently collect a tax for stormwater related problems. If the problem is on publicly owned City property, then the problem can be resolved using City funds, if the problem is on private property, then there is nothing the city can do.
Private drainage and erosion issues, as well as ground water issues, are the responsibility of the property owner. Drainage directed from gutters, downspouts or other private systems to neighboring properties is a civil matter between the property owners. Driveways, and their associated culverts or bridges, that cross public drainage systems (e.g., that cross over ditches or streams) are also property owner responsibilities. Information or assistance maybe available from Public Works about the cause of the problem and possible solutions; however, the city cannot recommend a particular contractor or undertake any work outside a city easement. Property owners are responsible for routine grounds maintenance such as grass mowing and trash / debris removal – owners should ensure that systems and structures are kept free of yard waste (grass clippings, tree trimmings, and leaves) or other obstructions that may block the flow of water, including: trees, shrubs and other growth within easements: driveways and their associated culverts or bridges; and fences, which are allowed in easements as long as they do not block the flow of stormwater.
Stormwater pollution is when water from rainstorms, garden houses and sprinklers causes runoff that collects harmful debris and flows through local creeks, rivers and lakes - eventually draining, untreated into the ocean.
A watershed is an area of land that collects water whenever it rains or snows. Through gravity, water is channeled into soils, groundwater, creeks and lakes and drains into larger bodies of water such as rivers. Eventually, the flows to tan ocean. Watershed and whatever we do to the land will affect water quality downstream.
No. Storm water flows do not receive any treatment because of the sheer volume of runoff on even the driest day.
In most cases the sanitary sewer system and the municipal storm drain system are two completely separate water drainage systems.
Along the coast, storm water pollution poses a health risk to beach goers swimming or fishing particularly within 400 yards of flowing storm drain outlets. Countless marine animals and plants living can become sick or die from contact with pollutants from runoff.
Getting involved is a great way to keep your neighborhood and local waterways clean. Here are a few simple ways to help keep pollutants out of local water bodies:
A common conventional method for managing storm water is a storm water basin. Basins are meant to collect storm water and slowly release it at a controlled rate so that downstream areas are not flooded or eroded. While effective for flood control, these practices have significant limitations for water quality treatment and for preventing impacts to stream systems. The main difference between a detention and a retention basin is whether or not it has a permanent pool of water – like a traditional “pond”. The water level is established by the low flow orifice. Most of the time the orifice is part of a metal or concrete structure called a riser. A detention, or dry, basin has an orifice level with the bottom of the basin so that all of the water eventually drains out and it remains dry between storms – hence, a dry basin. Retention basins have a riser with an orifice at a higher point so that it retains a permanent pool of water. The basins themselves are important for storing and slowing (attenuating) the runoff from impervious surfaces such as rooftops or pavement. The amount of treatment, or cleaning, of the water is limited. Dry detention basins control flood flows only. A retention basin can also provide water quality benefits by reducing sediments and attached pollutants. One of the most important elements of maintaining basins is making sure the low flow orifice is not blocked or clogged. Other maintenance activities include repairing erosion, removing sediment, and managing the vegetation. Repairing erosion early can save significant costs, both in the erosion and the resulting sedimentation that can end up needing to be removed from the basin. Vegetation should be kept to heights that allow inspection for animal burrows, sinkholes, wet areas, etc. along the fill embankments. Common mistakes are not mowing important areas because they are too steep or ignoring mowing completely. These basins are one of the most popular means of providing storm water management throughout most of the United States.
It is understandable that on certain occasions (i.e., holidays, parties, etc.) there will be more trash than usual. During those events, you may place your extra trash in trash bags or in a personal container. However, if this happens on a regular basis, Republic Services will contact the resident to correct the issue by suggesting a larger trash cart.
Carts come in three sizes: 48-gallon (28"d x 29"w x 38"h), 65-gallon (29"d x 25"w x 42"h), and 95-gallon (34"d x 29"w x 42"h). The 48-gallon cart is recommended for households with one to two residents, the 65-gallon cart for households with three to four residents, and the 95-gallon cart for households with five or more residents.
You may leave the cart(s) outside, but you are required to store it behind the front building line of your home. Your subdivision may have additional guidelines.
