Participate in the Virtual Design Downtown Spring Public Open House

To support the health and safety of our community during COVID-19 Downtown St. Louis Inc’s Design Downtown STL initiative has moved to an online format to collect your important feedback on future strategies for Downtown St. Louis.

The Open House includes six digital exhibits for you to explore.  Each exhibit proposes a goal and includes activities to gather your feedback on specific ideas.

Recently, we heard that only 11 residents have participated within the first few days of its release, so we need your voice on how to shape downtown St. Louis’s future!

To get started, visit:

Blood Drive at The Last Hotel

2020 Census Needs Your Input!

The 2020 Census has started, and it’s your chance to shape the future for yourself, your family, and your downtown community!

Information collected in the Census informs how billions of dollars in federal funding are distributed to states and communities each year.

As of May 13, 2020, about 42.2% of downtown residents have responded.

Fewer responses = fewer government funds for downtown = less road repair, school funding, public transit availability, transitional housing, etc.



You can respond online, by phone, or by mail. Regardless of how you choose to respond, your information will be kept confidential.

Visit 2020CENSUS.GOV to respond to the census today.
