Are some of my neighbors being left out of this proposed annexation?

Yes. Manchester’s proposal leaves out several neighboring unincorporated areas. Leaving out these areas can make it more difficult for the County to provide services to this area if annexation were approved by voters.

Manchester previously tried to annex this area of unincorporated St. Louis County in 2004 and it was denied. Manchester is only concerned about what is good for the city and is not concerned about being a good neighbor or doing what is right for the region. Manchester is instead committed to taking in new tax revenue from residents who will see their property taxes increase and businesses that will see their expenses increase when there is no evidence presented that the services provided by Manchester would be better in either quality or quantity than those provided by St. Louis County.
