    Copied below is an email received from Lisa Otke, Commercial District Manager, City of St Louis, directed to those businesses impacted by our required response to COVID-19. The resources will be updated with new information so we're asking our business owners to check in periodically using these links. Please forward as needed to any businesses impacted in our region. This will be posted on our website on the homepage under News for your use.

    St. Louis Business Owners,

    I would like to inform you of valuable resources coming available in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We know this is a troubling time for all of us, but it is particularly scary when you are responsible for a business. Please know we are working very closely and collaboratively with the Regional Chamber, The Economic Development Partnership, and other local and State economic development organizations to ensure you are provided with the most succinct and non-duplicative information possible. Together with our economic development partners we are monitoring all potential federal initiatives that may provide assistance to our businesses and their employees and will keep you informed.  Here are a couple items we want to make you aware of:

    The St. Louis Regional Chamber is hosting www.stlregionalchamber.com/covid-19 on their website. This is where we are directing all the latest and up-to-date information and business resources. This will ensure we all throughout the region are working with the same information and tools. You can find that website HERE.

    There are a several other links on that website that we would like to highlight:

    Explore St. Louis has collaborated with many stakeholders and community leaders on the "STL Take it Home initiative". They are encouraging folks to support our local restaurants through the STL Take It Home page on www.explorestlouis.com that provides links to restaurants that are offering curbside and delivery service. 

    We plan to have more resources coming available in the coming days. Thank you for your commitment to the City.

    Sincerely,

    Otis Williams
    Executive Director
    St. Louis Development Corporation

    Lock 'em up and throw away the key...or alternative programs?

    Waste of money? Money well-spent?

    What is success/failure?

    Find out in a SNA-hosted "Better Understanding" Event. A panel of 4 speakers will tell us what the City is doing under the Mayor's initiative for sustained criminal justice reform and then the panel will focus on juveniles in our justice system and what alternatives there are to secure detention.

    Mayor Krewson starts us off at 7:30 with broad City updates. Panel discussion starts at 8:00 PM with an overview and goals and then the juvenile justice system and alternatives to secure detention. You'll even find out ways organizations and individuals can help. Audience questions begin at 8:30 PM and we'll close at 9:00 PM. Agenda

    Join us Wednesday, January 8, cafeteria, St. Mary Magdalen, 4924 Bancroft. Plenty of parking at the church and then in the lot on the north side of Bancroft.

    Thank you to South Patrol's Officer Vince Stehlin for these holiday safety tips. It's a worthwhile read.

    Holiday Safety Tips for Crime Prevention

    The holidays are approaching and, every year, we see an increase in street robberies from now through Christmas. Now, more than ever, is the time to be aware of your surroundings and take steps to reduce your chances of becoming a robbery victim...

    • Always look around and know what is happening in your vicinity, whether you are walking or driving. Be aware of your surroundings
    • When walking, walk with a purpose. Don’t give the impression that you are wandering aimlessly or not paying attention. Walk like you have somewhere to get and you don’t have time to stop for anyone.
    • When walking, make eye contact with everyone that you pass. That lets them know that you have noticed them and can probably describe them, so if they have criminal intentions, they are likely to wait for the next “victim.”
    • Don’t get lost looking at your phone or carrying on a conversation. It’s best not to have ear buds in that will keep you from hearing what is happening around you.
    • When driving, leave space between your car and the car in front of you when at a stop light or stopped in traffic. If you must accelerate quickly you don’t want to be boxed in by stopping too close to the car in front of you.
    • When driving and almost home, call ahead and have someone meet you outside and at least watch you park and go in the house. 
    • When approaching your residence or garage pay attention to people in the area. Especially when driving up an alley to park in your garage. If you see anyone, drive past your garage and go around the block. If they are still there when you return call 9-1-1.
    • Make sure your front/rear yards are well lighted as well as the area behind your garage. Motion lights in hallways are also a beneficial tool. 
    • If approached by a robber, the best advice is still to do what they say, except NEVER get into a car with them. Give them the property they ask for. This is the best chance to escape unharmed. 
    • NEVER get into a car with a robber. Fight in any way that you can… kick, bite, punch, grab, pull, scratch, scream, shout, etc. Use your keys as a weapon by holding them in the palm of your hand so the key blades are facing outward and punch toward the eyes. Use pepper spray if you have it. Use your firearm, just be careful so that the robber doesn’t try to disarm you and turn the weapon on you.
    • Do NOT leave valuables in open view in your car. Put them in the trunk or take them along with you. This is the time of the year when thieves do their own form of "window shopping." They look in parked cars for gifts and other merchandise, and they will break through car windows to get at such valuables. It takes only a few seconds for a criminal to break into your car. So, remember when you leave your car, leave it empty.
    • Don't advertise expensive toys, electronics, or other gifts received by the boxes left for garbage collections. Compress large boxes and place them in black garbage bags for pick-up.

    If a plan is presented, it will need to go to the voters for approval--one of the fatal flaws in the recent Better Together plan according to area voters.

    The Municipal League of Metro St. Louis turned in the final signatures Monday to kick off what’s known as the Board of Freeholders. That 19-person body will have a year to present St. Louis and St. Louis County voters with a city-county merger plan.

    The lot where the Avalon Theater stood on Kingshighway has been sold! Local real estate company--Garcia Properties--is the new owner. There are no plans yet for development....please stay patient as these plans normally take months....and sometimes longer.

    This is certainly good news for the Kingshighway Corridor on the eastern border of the Southampton Neighborhood.
