The City has kept pace with growth in the area by upgrading water and sewer facilities, improving local traffic arteries and implementing a comprehensive plan to insure that the City develops in an orderly fashion. New and planned residential communities offer a wide selection of affordable quality home sites and apartment living. City parks provide shelter and space for family outings, playground equipment for the children and fields and courts for athletic activities. Every August the Pevely Parks and Recreation Board hosts the “Homecoming Festival,” a time for residents to come together for a weekend of celebration and entertainment. The fun includes activities such as pie-backing contest, fireworks display, crafts, and local and big-named entertainment. In general, Pevely preserves a pleasant small town atmosphere for the family both young and old; and yet our location allows one to easily experience the many possibilities “just up the road” in the St. Louis metropolitan area.
In addition to public safety and utility services, the City provides some basic needs to enhance a resident’s quality of life and preserve the property values of the community. Solid waste removal is coordinated through a private hauling service and billed by the City. Additionally, the City sponsors an annual bulk-item pick up and curbside chipping of tree limbs each month. Full-time animal and pest control operations are provided to include an active mosquito control program in the summer. When winter arrives, the Pevely Street Department is poised and ready to effectively handle the snow and sleet. Citizens can also rely on a vigilant zoning and code enforcement program to insure their real estate investment is protected.
