Macmillan, Bellerive Make Neighborly Peace

Article excerpt

GOOD NEIGHBOR POLICY: The trustees of Bellerive C.C. Grounds were assured last week that Jane Hunter MacMillan would do everything possible to address complaints from her neighbors.

Residents say they are bothered by noise coming from the pavilion where MacMillan does her entertaining, lighting from her stables that remains on around the clock and water runoff. MacMillan owns Hunter Farms on Ladue Road, which borders the country club grounds.

The trustees have heard from MacMillan, and she promised that she would hold only six events at her pavilion, even though that would mean turning down dozens of requests for charity events. The trustees suggested that MacMillan do some landscaping to halt the runoff and to block the lighting from her stables. The meeting ended on a friendly basis.

One trustee confided, "If we're still talking about those matters at the next meeting, we won't be considered nice and friendly."

Incidentally, the manse at Bellerive, owned by Bernice Shepherd and her late barrister-hub, John Shepherd, is on the sale block via Janet McAfee.
