OLIVETTE • The City Council, meeting Tuesday evening, approved legislation designating Ridgehouse Capital as the preferred developer for Olivette's city center, an area that includes the former city hall and surrounding property at 9473 Olive Boulevard.
City Manager Barbara Sondag said the council action allows the city's Economic Development Commission, along with Development Strategies, to review the Ridgehouse proposal, and negotiate a redevelopment agreement for the 2.9-acre site.
Olivette moved its city government offices to 1140 Dielman Road in 2017.
Also on Tuesday, the council authorized the city to contract with Kansas City-based Ballard King & Associates to conduct a recreation/community center study at a cost of $18,250.
