KIRKWOOD, Mo. (KMOX) – We could finally see a decision made tonight concerning a request by The Magic House to expand in Kirkwood. Preliminary approval was given to expand the Magic House’s parking lot, earlier this month.
The matter was tabled last month by the Kirkwood city council, when it was determined that those who live near the museum didn’t receive proper notification about a public hearing on the matter.
The Magic House purchased a home to the east of its facility and leveled it, in February.
A proposed expansion of a parking lot on the east side of the facility would add 40 new spaces, a public safety issue according to Magic House officials who say otherwise children and their families have to cross busy streets to reach them.
Tonight’s meeting at Kirkwood City Hall begins at 7 p.m.
