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.
