I actually love Florissant overall. I bought a home here about 9 months ago and I love it! What I have an issue with is I never see any police officers just patrolling the area to make sure everything is okay. If they would, they would hear this loud horrendous noise we deal with. I live across the street from a older couple who has a teenage grandson I guess who literally beats on a set of drums in their garage at any given time of day or evening. It has the violate noise ordinance. I have emailed Florissant twice and got no response. I really would appreciate this being handled. They need to step up and soundproof their garage or he needs to stop playing those drums. They seem to be a nice family, I've even talked to the young guy, but I won't mention his playing too loud, but someone else needs to. It's totally unfair to the neighbors.

My neighbors and I are dealing with a resident who has a teenager who plays drums really really loud at any given time of the day. I thought that the city of Florissant noise ordinance would take care of that, but unfortunately when I called I was transferred three times lastly to the police station and talk to a very rude dispatcher. So seemingly nothing can be done about this young guy playing the drums so horribly loud, with an emphasis on "horrible" it sounds more like he's beating them. Otherwise I would be in heaven living where in Florissant. I love my home!
I just recently moved here from out west, and surprisingly, I like it very much. Nice homes are very reasonably priced! There is so much to see and do in this area. Everyone is so friendly and helpful! We have great police and fire departments. I feel very safe. There are a ton of great restaurants and places to go shopping nearby. We also have a very active group of senior citizens in Florissant, and there are many activities available for them to do. We have 2 great community centers with pools, gyms, and pickleball courts. We even have our own live theatre close by.
