Better Together Pulling Back

The Post Dispatch carried a story this afternoon which said that Better Together was withdrawing its’ initiative petition from the state. The board believes with a lot of justification that the initiative cannot pass unless there are provisions that the city and county provide a majority concern.

St. Louis County Affordable Housing Trust Fund

I just received an email with the initial results of the planning efforts of the proposed Affordable Housing Trust Fund for St. Louis County. I am delighted to see the recommendations which made terrific sense. The group is led by Chris Krehmeyer of Beyond Housing and the Clark-Fox Foundation is providing important support.
