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.
St. Louis Development Corporation
These are notes from the Southampton Neighborhood Association Better Understanding event held January 08, 2020.
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...
Avoid Porch Theft: 5 Tips to Protect Your Packages
Come celebrate the holidays with the businesses in the Macklind Business District! Here are several events happening in our neighborhoods! (Special shout-out to Association Commercial Member Espresso Yourself Coffee & Cafe - Santa's entry last year created photo moments for waiting children!)
Follow up from the Southampton Neighborhood Association General Meeting 11/13.
Thank you to our guest speakers Judges Annette Llewellyn and Thomas McCarthy from the 22nd Circuit Court. We appreciate your time and thoughts.
Here is the link to the CJCC that the Judges and Public Information Officer talked about. These meetings are open to the public.
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.
