Claymont Woods is a planned community in Chesterfield, Missouri, consisting of 189 acres and 227 residential lots, each a half acre or more. The community has an open, park-like atmosphere with forty acres of private common ground scattered throughout the community, including hiking trails, a fishing lake, and a ball field.
- UPDATED: Sunday July 19. The outlook is the same as ten days ago: "Work on the lake dredging project will continue all week. With luck and dry weather, this work should be completed near the end of the week. Wet weather will delay completion. The level of the lake will remain low until the work is fininshed. Heavy trucks will be using Woodsbluff. We suggest that walkers avoid the area." Rain continues to delay work -- recent storms have dropped between 3/4th inch to 1-1/4 inches, enough to refill the lake (the lake's drainage area is more than 600 acres).
The trustees ask all residents to bear with us, accepting the noise and disruption as essential to improve our lake.
- Volunteers are needed for trail maintenance. Please contact Dennis Cooper.
- Beware of ticks! The trail committee cautions that ticks are common on the trails. Wear light colored clothes and an insect repellent with a high concentration of deet or picaridin. If possible, pre-treat clothes with Permethrin. Ticks in Missouri transmit Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever. See MU Extension Service
- The Chesterfield Police are offering a program to assist elderly and health-compromised citizens during the corona virus. See the press release Chesterfield Police Press Release
- The CDC reminds everyone that the COVID-19 spreads mainly from person to person by:
- People who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet). When an infected person coughs or sneezes, respiratory droplets are expelled and can land in the mouth or noses of people who are near, or possibly even inhaled.
- These droplets may also land on surfaces or objects. It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes.
- The City of Chesterfield offers advice on the corona virus. See CWRA News.
