State of the City Well-Attended: Over 40 Lake Ozark residents, business owners, and other stakeholders attended  or tuned in via Zoom for the inaugural State of the City event held on January 23rd in the Council Chambers at Lake Ozark City Hall. Throughout the 45-minute presentation, both Mayor Newberry and City Administrator Fry highlighted progress made within the City over the course of 2023 and identified goals that will be accomplished throughout 2024 as well.  “We’ve talked quite a bit today about the state of the city as a business and some of the directions we are moving; I hope everyone can see that the state of the city in this regard is very positive.  That said, the City is here to do more than repair roads and be a good steward of tax dollars.  We’re here to be represent you and to be your government. This is not a City trying to deny people of information, their voice, or the chance to participate.  Whether those opinions support or are opposed to my beliefs or the opinions of the Board, we will never have the chance to do our job the right way until you do yours the same.”, said Mayor Newberry.   “I want you to have every opportunity to know this is your government, and know that that is now in place. As a resident who spent many years not having faith or trust in Lake Ozark’s present or future, I’m proud to say that we now have a city I believe in.” During the presentation, a review of new community investments, infrastructure projects, and the financial and policy direction of the City were discussed.   Those who were unable to attend the event can view presentation materials at this link. It is anticipated that the event will return annually in the future.

242 Land Divided For Sale

A piece of property along Rt. 242 in Lake Ozark is now available for development after the Lake Ozark Board of Aldermen recently approved an application to subdivide the land.

The board adopted a recommendation from the Planning and Zoning Commission to subdivide 66.3 acres along Rt. 242 into three parcels of land currently owned by LPS One, LLC. Longtime resident, landowner and developer George Stanton is a representative of the LLC.

The lots are on the north side of Rt. 242 near the area of the old asphalt plant.

There are not yet public utility access points within the area proposed for subdivision.

Because the board approved the preliminary plat, the land is now suitable for future commercial or residential development since the lots meet requirements of a Planned Unit Development (PUD), as it’s presently zoned.

A closing on the property was scheduled for Sept. 17. According to a Realtor involved in the closing, buyers for Lot 2 have begun the process of researching utility extension and installation needs.

The land is within the Horseshoe Bend Tax Increment Financing (TIF) project area which was originally reviewed by the Lake Ozark Board of Aldermen in 2006 and enacted in 2016.

The opening of Rt. 242 took place 10 years ago.
