Register for the public hearing
The Land Clearance for Redevelopment Authority of St. Louis County (LCRA) Brownfield Revolving Loan Fund (RLF) will provide a sub-grant to remediate subsurface soils at 9844 and 9846 West Florissant Avenue, in preparation for a commercial building.
The Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis proposes redeveloping these two properties into Urban League Plaza. This redevelopment will provide convenient access to necessary services for the cities of Dellwood, Ferguson, and surrounding north county communities which have long lacked access to such services. The new 13,500 square foot commercial center will promote economic growth, create new jobs, and foster entrepreneurial endeavors and community wellness for the City of Dellwood and surrounding communities.
This multi-use center will be an incubator of new businesses, a home to established and committed partners, as well as a place for community services for pregnant people, children, and parents of young children. Prospective, representative tenants include First Bank, At Home Care, Proficient Chiropractic, Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis, including space for the Save our Sisters program, and a local restaurant. All are minority businesses except First Bank which plans to hire minority residents. In addition to these and other retail tenants, Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis has plans for a community conference center, incubator space, and co-working spaces.
Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis and LCRA will host a virtual public meeting on Thursday, February 3, 2022 at 3pm.
The meeting will include a presentation about both projects’ environmental site assessment findings, the Analysis of Brownfields Cleanup Alternatives (ABCA), the cleanup remedies selected, the proposed redevelopment, and the activities that will transpire on both sites. All members of the public are welcome and invited to attend, learn about the projects, ask questions, and provide input.
