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.

See our overview or legal definitions for more information.

Lamar Johnson has been incarcerated for more than 27 years despite clear evidence of his innocence. @StLouisCityCA @KimGardnerSTL has fought to free Mr. Johnson for years, and a new law allowed her to yet again petition a court to correct this injustice.

Today, @stlcao Kim Gardner asked the court to set aside the murder conviction of Lamar Johnson, who has been in prison for nearly 30 years.

“The circuit attorney cannot, and will not, turn a blind eye to the conviction of an innocent person."

Statement from Circuit Attorney’s Office

More than 3 years ago, the Office of the Circuit of Attorney sought a new trial in the case of Lamar Johnson after investigating and presenting overwhelming evidence of his 1995 wrongful conviction.
