After nearly three years of litigation, the City of Boonville has formally granted Larry and Warren Schlotzhauer the go-ahead with the Park Hill Minor Subdivision Plan.

After nearly three years of litigation, the City of Boonville has formally granted Larry and Warren Schlotzhauer the go-ahead with the Park Hill Minor Subdivision Plan.
According to a letter from the city, it states that the city apologizes for the resulting disputes, which led to delay and litigation and expenditure of time and resources by both parties and regrets any inconveniences or other harm that led to delay in approving the proposed subdivision plat and site plan.
Almost three years ago, the Schlotzhauers proposed a new subdivision, which would be located between Morgan and Spring streets, due west of the Katy Depot (211 E. Spring Street).
During an October 15, 2012 Boonville City Council meeting, the proposed plan was rejected by the council. This prompted the Schlotzhauers to retain legal council.
“There are two counts to their legal action. In the first count, the Schlotzhauers are in a pursuant of a Writ of Mandamus, asking the courts to overturn the decision by the city council at the October 15 meeting. The statement of facts states the Schlotzhauers did everything legally to get the re-platting passed. They said legally the council should not have voted against the re-platting. In the second count, the Schlotzhauers claim a violation in the due process of law,” according to a story published in the October 16 edition of the Boonville Daily News.
The original plans call for four duplexes to be constructed on the property.
On August 12 of this year, the city approved the subdivision plat without undue delay. This approval was instated for the original plans according to the law office of Mark Wooldridge.
