Tenesha Bady of Diave’ Daye Care Center LLC approached the Association seeking a letter of support in conjunction with the above-referenced appeal to the Board of Adjustment of the City of St. Louis. Ms. Bady presented her plans and took questions at a meeting of the Association’s Board on July 10, 2023, a recording of which was made available to the general public on the Association’s website.
The Association also conducted an internet poll, which concluded on July 31, 2023, where the feedback of neighbors and other interested parties was gathered. The Association does not support the rezoning of 5540 Fyler Avenue from Zone “A” – Single-Family Dwelling District for this project.
A letter was drafted with the results of the information collected in the poll and sent to Joseph Vollmer, Ward 5 Alderman, Tenesha Bady & the St. Louis Board of Adjustment.
Of the 38 respondents to the poll, 32 (84.2%) opposed the parcel’s rezoning from Zone “A” – Single-Family Dwelling District and only 4 (15.8%) were in favor of rezoning the parcel for commercial use.
The neighbors’ primary concerns for the project are (1) the quality of life impact the rezoning, construction, and ongoing business activity would have on the residences immediately adjacent to the site; (2) traffic concerns, namely increased traffic during the early morning and afternoon hours and how the increase in traffic would interact with the drop-off and pickup times of two schools situated nearby on Fyler Avenue, which can accommodate only one lane of traffic in each direction; and (3) the daycare’s hours of operation, which are proposed to be from 6:00 a.m. to as late as 12:00 midnight each day.
On July 10th, the North Hampton Neighbors Network planning committee met with the business owner and asked a series of questions. That exchange is located here:
On July 24th, Ms. Tenesha Bady presented her plan and took questions from the community about the rezoning request. That meeting can be viewed here:
The business owner would be more than happy to field any questions from the community about the neighborhood project. Please feel free to give her a call with your concerns:
