The City of Knob Noster - Loading

High­way 23 and High­way DD Annex­a­tion Pub­lic Com­ment Opportunity

July 03, 2023

The City of Knob Noster is in the process of requesting to annex portions of Highway 23 and DD Highway along Knob Noster State Park. The City of Knob Noster recently annexed the Knob Noster State Park into the city limits. The purpose of this proposed annexation of portions of Highway 23 and DD Highway will be to allow Knob Noster police and fire departments to provide emergency services to the roadways that serve Knob Noster State Park. Knob Noster PD will also be able to enforce local ordinances along those highways, such as speeding, running stop signs, etc.
The City of Knob Noster will NOT be taking ownership or maintenance responsibilities of the highways; MoDOT will still own and maintain the roadways. The proposed roadways will simply be annexed into the Knob Noster city limits so that emergency services have jurisdiction both in the Knob Noster State Park and the highways that serve them and run adjacent to them. The City is also NOT proposing to annex any private property. As part of the annexation process the City is requesting public input on the proposed annexations for the next two weeks. The deadline for comment is Friday, July 21, at 5:00 pm. Please use the attached form if you would like to provide a comment. Comment sheets can be mailed to Knob Noster City Hall at 201 N. State St., Knob Noster, MO, 65336, or emailed to City Administrator Scott Peterson at
