One Future, One Community

UnifySTL is a group of thought leaders who all agree the reunification of St. Louis City and St. Louis County must be made a priority in order for the region to regain its rightful place as a top tier market.

Combining the city and county into a single unit would create a sense of ownership and commitment to the combined entity that doesn’t exist today. A neighborhood doesn’t have to also be a governmental unit for people to identify with it. For example, the Hill is a cohesive neighborhood, but doesn’t have its own government.
