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.

Today’s Supreme Court decision will have devastating consequences for women and families throughout our nation, state, and city. However, the Circuit Attorney remains committed to ensuring the safe delivery of comprehensive reproductive health services in the City of St. Louis.

St. Louis City’s first African American female Circuit Attorney  @StLouisCityCA Kim Gardner will be recognized as Mother of Justice from Africans Rising Together 2063 at this weekend’s #Juneteenth & Nat’l Caribbean Heritage Month

Statement from Michael Downey

The letter from seven former grand jurors made public constitutes an extraordinary and extreme breach of public trust. A grand jury investigated & brought charges against William Tisaby. No charges were brought against Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner.

Thank you @EFMoriarty & @CBSSunday for covering the barriers the wrongfully convicted face, including @StLouisCityCA’s work with @The_MIP on behalf of Mr. Lamar Johnson here in #MO.
