Got ideas for downtown? Tell Downtown STL

ST. LOUIS – Downtown STL Inc. is offering area residents another chance to say our piece about what there’ll be to see and do downtown in the next ten years. The group is holding a virtual open house May 11-11 for public comments and ideas.

The open house can be accessed at designdowntownstl-openhouse2. Six digital exhibits are presented; each exhibit proposes a goal and includes activities to gather feedback on specific ideas. The process starts with a video and give prompts to help the viewer move through the plans.

There is also an interactive map so people can mark specific locations for comment.

“We hope you will take some time to note on the MAP where you have an issue or idea for Downtown,” the group says.

Downtown STL has held open houses over the past nine months, but because of the coronavirus pandemic, this final one is online.

The Design Downtown plan is scheduled to be completed in late June and submitted to the city in July. Preliminary plans can be seen at

The group says on its website that it wants “to ensure that the voices of Downtown residents, business and property owners, employees, leaders, advocates, and visitors are included, as everyone experiences Downtown in different ways.”

Downtown STL was set up to promote downtown and encourage investment, economic activity and vibrancy there. It also manages the Downtown St. Louis Community Improvement District, which supplements city services.

Staff is home to The NorthSider and The SouthSider weekly community newspapers. The SouthSider publishes 25,000 copies every Tuesday. The NorthSider publishes 25,000 copies every Thursday. They are distributed at over 600 locations across St. Louis.
