being familiar with team nasheed- they realized early she wasnt getting much in SW City so they did a lot of work to push that vote alway from Reed and to Green, but its a tight rope act because you dont really want to push too much of the vote and she wins, i would say 2000-2500 votes that green go...
^ youre going off 4 bullet points, there is no plan out there yet. the plan is far more complex then just those 4 broad points from the Biz Journal.
I have access to both Lime and Bird internal dashboard and the numbers for scooters are just way ahead of bikes for things like per vehicle per day use, total time on vehicle ect. Do you happen to know what the average trip distance is on scooters? I always wonder about the scooters' long-term viab...

It'll be interesting to see how the scooters fare in spring.
That piece is way off- both lime and bird are running 500-700 scooters each right now.
Bike share is definitely not a fad but companies found a bigger mouse trap with scooters The draw to dockless for Cities was that there was no need to spent money up front for stations. Down side is companies didn’t have any incentive to keep bikes when they found better revenue model. I have access...
I'm hoping someone can give me a Cliff's Notes version of the plan. Would City and County be considered one municipality for statistical purposes? How much autonomy would, say, Clayton have regarding taxes, building codes, etc? Is the plan easily amended in the future? Can school consolidation be a...
I still think places like Chesterfield will fight the measure to the bitter end. Those sorts love to claim they're from "St. Louis" whenever they're talking about where they're from, but when it comes down to stepping up for the region, their mindsets instantly regress about 1000 years into straigh...
Not sure why people are hung up on the county munis- w/o police, courts, PAs, and sales tax they’re effectively property tax funded CIDs. 90% of them would probably fold in the decade to follow.
what would consolidating schools do? kids in the city would still go to city schools because thats where they live. the problem with the city schools isn't lack of money, for the most part (i think if we had 1 school district, for the schools that are in the city they would probably get less per stu...
City isnt losing anything, we aren't being combined with unincorporated county. new type of gov structure will be created that will carry the the city name and be based in the city. Ill let BT announce the plan that their Task Force is still working on but the plan is a very good thing for the City,...
i think people need to realize how complex this is....we have spent 70 years creating this mess and the plan will untangle most of it and most will be in place the day after 2020 presidential but other things will take time.
I think people will be pleasantly surprised. I would also change the name of this thread from City reentry into the county to something like the New St.Louis
Open to traffic.
I'll look into it, I think the contractor is finishing up some outstanding items.
I left WUSTL in Jan of this year so a lot could have changed but at that time it was postponed with no planned date. money is getting tight at BJC/WUSTL
cumulative 3 day total, and no error in my number....title sponsorship is going for over $150,000.
just a FYI, if you look at 2018 Chris is very wrong on his predictions :) Ill start with the politics 1- State Senator Nasheed wins the Board of Alderman president race 2- Jeffery Boyd loses BY A LOT in his 22nd ward re-election 3- STL is awarded an MLS team 4- BOA pass all the tax breaks outlined l...
New Board is sworn in 3rd week of April.
1. Blues win the Cup 2. Jefferson Arms looks just as it does today 3. 300 and BPV get started 4. Annie Rice beats Paul Fehler 57% to 43% in the 8th ward special election 5. Someone buys Butler Brothers 6. Someone announces plans for the empty parking lot on Wash Ave between 19th and 18th 7. No move...
^ If aldermen are so concerned about how a yes vote looks in terms of their reelection then why did 26 of them vote yes the other day? Even the two that voted no offered praise for the plan. SLPS is even on board, and they're the ones losing out on the property taxes. Also, how is this just a "show...
this is not just for 2019, this is the first annual of many to come and the goal of making it a longer event then just 3 days
Jared is hoping for 200,000 attendance for year 1.

as for location- the goal is downtown and now its just up to City Hall not to be a roadblock.
No chance it happens before March 5th election.
all this is just a show- the real votes are next year and i highly doubt that the 14 even ward aldermen will want to touch this before their March 5th re-election, so this will be decided by a different Board of Aldermen and a different President of the Board of Aldermen.
^ whats been talked about in the last few months but wouldnt surprise if its a bit more if the state steps up with a good offer. I know there are plenty of Square employees ready to make the move, they're done with the SF cost of living and St.Louis is looking mighty good to them
they were indeed talking about Square, tho following up with people in the know most think John misstated Squares actual intentions, moving some jobs here but not the HQ
