I know this isn't a politically reality, but if we could just have the more urban inner ring suburbs merge with the city (this would be separate from the overall re-joining of the county), this wouldn't even be a big deal.
Downtown Clayton could BE the new downtown without all that much consternation. Downtown St. Louis is where it is because the riverfront used to really matter for commerce, and it became the center of the region. Now Clayton is more of that, I suppose, and that's not necessarily a bad thing, it's just quite unfortunate it's not within city limits.
Not going to change, though. Not the city limits part anyways. Hopefully the part about it being the population center and about it outpacing downtown will begin to change.
