Update: March 2, 2017 – Kirkwood aldermen give preliminary approval to a plan letting the Magic House add more than six thousand square feet to the facility and expand the parking lot to accommodate up to 40 more vehicles. They’ll likely take it up again in two weeks.
KIRKWOOD, MO (KMOX) – The Kirkwood City Council will make a decision tonight on a possible expansion of the Magic House. The children’s museum is looking to add onto its building and increase parking.
Director of Marketing and Development Carrie Hutchcraft says some nearby residents are not supportive of the expansion but they’re trying to work around those issues.
“Some residents voiced some concerns about the space, and kind of the aesthetics as well so we of course take that in to consideration when we look at what the parking lot could look like,” she says.
The Kirkwood City Council meets tonight at 7pm.
