SPECIAL ELECTION TODAY – AUGUST 6, 2019 ON A PROPOSAL TO RENEW OUR SPECIAL BUSINESS DISTRICT (SBD).
The SBD has been providing safety and security services to the neighborhood since 1996. The District currently provides additional security patrols, maintains a security camera network, partners with the CWE Neighborhood Security Initiative, and has been slowly upgrading pedestrian lighting in the neighborhood.
Failure to pass this will mean loss of current extra security patrols, no further investment in security cameras (which have been highly effective in achieving arrest and convictions), no money for upgraded street lighting and no additional services.
Approval of the measure will continue all of the above and also provide funds for landscaping, infrastructure, development and marketing.
The West Pine Laclede Neighborhood Association encourages residents to vote YES on this Special Business District.
