This section is intended to provide Subdivision Trustees with general information, which may assist them in their duties.
Much of the information was provided by the St. Louis County Department of Planning. Other valuable resources are the management companies, such as CMA and City & Village, which oversee particular associations with regard to assessment collections and maintenance of common ground areas.
Subdivision associations are formal, legal entities created to maintain common grounds and to enforce trust indentures.
