This type of thing could only happen in a failed ghetto city government like St. Louis.
You can give it a fancy name and pretend like wonderful things are happening but it still sucks.

In a vacuum the 1% earnings tax is not terrible. The problem is that a whole lot of people want 1%, theoretically speaking. And the services you talk about are more or less average to fail at best. Maybe 2% would make them amazing? Remember when garbage pick up was "free"? Some people would bang the...
Downtown is going to require retail outfits that can absorb the dead times and the way higher than average theft. It's going to require large chains basically, downtown at least. EDIT: I don't mean to imply theft is worse downtown than elsewhere in the city - it's not - just ask any manager of Walgr...
This strip of Olive exists because there were virtually no remaining, viable commercial corridors left in the city that could organically support these kinds of businesses (and still feel safe). This is a terrible plan. Cronyism and bureaucracy self-sustaining themselves. Parasites! Government is no...
My sources tell me that there were more than a few downtown conventioneers, marathoners, and other visitors looking to buy a pair of gloves this weekend and absolutely nowhere to get any. Sad!
Back to the historic code. Either everyone follows the code or you get rid of the code. Soooo why do we have a preservation board and other boards where people can get relief from the code? Great question. Does anyone know if they are tearing down the two residential/commercial buildings facing Jef...
The problem with gaining immigrant population is that nobody from Mexico to Syria to Sudan wants to live anywhere near American style ghetto. They don't like it. Nobody globally likes it.

Only chance is to take the failed space and boldly create urban infill.
WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH MY MOTHER f***ing TAX MONEY

Rather than starting a new thread I'll post this here because this could help change St. Louis. A quarter-million dollars and no progress on the mice problem at Clinton Peabody. http://www.stltoday.com/news/local/metro/it-s-unacceptable-residents-of-troubled-housing-complex-advocates-demand/article_...
^ I appreciate the response. We're more or less saying the same thing.
I've been cited for not having a valid MetroLink ticket.
Calling people names isn't very nice. I'm downtown a couple days a week. In fact, I'm downtown today. I'm available for lunch if you're interested. I see you're at Washington and Tucker but I can meet you wherever you want. While it's a nice gesture, I don't think it would be the most constructive ...

Let me clarify. Are you referring to me?
Let me clear something up before we get back to the main issue. The last few sentences of Poet's post implied that bollards are silly when in reality Moslem truck attacks have become increasingly regular events. Poet also implies that mosque attacks are of equal concern. The mosque has a right to sa...
Mosque's are built to face Mecca correct? Seems like that's the problem - the building can't be flipped. A synagogue or church could certainly be updated to fit onto Jefferson. The building doesn't need to face Mecca, the qibla (the direction of prayer) does. Whether absolutely obligatory or not, t...

Spring is in the air and the great American tradition is around the corner. Time to truck-attack proof the old ball yard. The bollards are being installed right now.

Let's assume for the sake of argument that Annie Rice is the most noble human being ever to walk the Earth. Virtually ever bullet point on her agenda is race-based. Fine, great. It's St. Louis. Let's say someone comes along and wants to open a store around Tower Grove offering up socks and underwear...
West Lake Landfill Documentary on HBO :shock: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=12&v=Ix1Tz7c1DTw I've seen this. Absolutely crazy. Personally, I wouldn't live within 10 miles of the landfill. One of the most bizarre scenes is when the woman speaks at the meeting who unknowingly moved to t...
