Scott Lewis became the official “historian” for Cottleville earlier this summer and now has a city park and road named after him.
The city’s Board of Aldermen decided at its July 16 meeting to name Lewis as the city’s official historian. At the same meeting, the board agreed to a proclamation naming a new 65-acre park being developed in the Miralago subdivision as Scott A. Lewis Park and naming the road leading to the park in his honor as well.
Lewis, who was elected St. Charles County sheriff last November, was a long-time city administrator and police chief for Cottleville. The proclamation cites Lewis’ leadership and his role in developing the city’s historic downtown area as well as its 125 acres of parks.
The new park will have two lakes along with a pavilion, barbecue pits, a paved walking trail and a boat ramp for water sports. The park, off Mid Rivers Mall Drive, is currently under construction and is scheduled to open by the spring of 2016.
