About Tower Grove South Concerned Citizens Special Business District

The primary purpose of the Tower Grove South Concerned Citizens Special Business District (TGSCC-SBD) is to provide enhanced security inside the District’s boundaries.

This extra security includes private patrols (off-duty City of St. Louis Police officers), enhanced alley lighting, trash pickup, crime/safety education, and other safety-related services to residents living within the boundaries of the TGSCC-SBD. It was approved by voters as a “special taxing district” in November 2008 and renewed in August 2018.

Its boundaries are Roger Place on the west; Gravois Ave to Phillips/Roger on the south; Grand Boulevard on the east; and on the north, the alley between Utah Place and McDonald Avenue.


The Board of Commissioners for the Tower Grove South Concerned Citizens Special Business District (“SBD”) is now accepting proposals for the provision of security services within its jurisdiction.

The security services will include patrols, advising on security practices in the neighborhood, interacting with the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department (SLMPD) and reviewing District crime data and trends.

The RFP can be found by clicking here.  If you are interested in this opportunity, please submit a formal proposal to the SBD by no later than 5:00pm, May 31, 2021.  Please email your response (PDF format preferred) to info@tgscc-stl.org.
