In the 1970’s, HUD (Development of Housing and Urban Development), demolished the Pruitt-Igo Housing Project in North Saint Louis. Since then, North Saint Louis and North Saint Louis County have experienced continuous deterioration and disinvestment.
Residents of North Saint Louis and North Saint Louis County, have suffered through these steadily worsening conditions for more than forty yers, resulting in tragedy of Ferguson, viewed by millions around the world.
Now, the National Geospatial Agency (NGA) in South Saint Louis needs a new headquarters and must choose between North Saint Louis and a site 35 miles outside the city.
Executive Order 12072 requires that we give priority to urban areas when we move federal facilities. North Saint Louis and North Saint Louis Count are in the Promise Zone.
Locating NGA in the urban core will spur unprecedented private and public investment.
We have created a new petition on “We the People,” a feature on President Obama’s website, WhiteHouse.gov”
Enforce Presidential Executive Order 12072, and select North Saint Louis City as the new home of the new NGA West Headquarters.
