WHEREAS, Section 100.400, RSMo, authorizes the Council to make a finding that an area is a blighted area and approve a general development plan for such area if the Council finds that the plan is feasible and in conformity with the general plan for the development of the community as a whole; NOW, THEREFORE,

to be a blighted area as defined in Section 100.310, RSMo, and more specifically finds that there is a predominance of defective and inadequate street layout, insanitary and unsafe conditions, deterioration of site improvements, improper subdivision or obsolete platting, and the existence of conditions which endanger life and property by fire and other causes in such planning area and as a result of the predominance of those conditions the planning area in its present condition and use constitutes an economic and social liability and a serious menace to the public health, safety, morals, and welfare.
