St Louis police are trying to track down the driver of a hit and run who collided with another car on South Grand.

Investigators say both vehicles were northbound on Grand at Juniata when one of the cars cut into the traffic lane, clipping the other car and sending that vehicle into a light pole and newly installed traffic signal. The car flipped over from the impact. The female driver was not seriously hurt but the car is heavily damaged.

The driver responsible continued driving northbound on Grand and remains at large.

    

 

An abandoned factory in the city's near north side will house veterans and ex-offenders who are clients of St. Patrick's Center which helps the homeless.

 A grand opening and tours of the new low-income housing called St. Louis Stamping Lofts will be this afternoon.  The 56 lofts are located at Cass Ave.  and Collins  which is the four-story St. Louis Stamping Company building, built in 1870 and listed on the National Register of Historic Buildings.

Missouri Treasurer Clint Zweifel and St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay will join partners North River Development, Pinnacle Entertainment and the St. Louis Equity Fund.  The housing was funded by a nearly ten-million dollar project financed by tax credits.

The residential facility also offers St. Patrick Center supportive services for people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless, including veterans and ex-offenders and veterans.

 St. Louis Stamping Lofts is part of a larger planned development called FarmWorks. When completed, FarmWorks will include a green business incubator and urban farm. 

The incubator will focus on distribution and processing of locally grown foods. The indoor/outdoor farm will feature aquaponics, hydroponics, vermiculture and vertical growing systems. 

St. Patrick Center and Gateway Greening will partner on an innovative training and job placement program to help residents grow and market food. 

Wildwood committee votes to retain Old Slave Road name

Wednesday, 17 April 2013 06:46 Published in Local News

For now Old Slave Road,a  private street in Wildwood, will retain its name.

The Suburban Journals of Greater St. Louis reports a city council committee is recommending that the town keep Old Slave Road as the name of a private street. The city council has the final say. 

Wildwood’s Administration/Public Works Committee voted 6-1 last week to keep the name.

One resident, Karen Fox, who lives on Old Slave Road, filed paperwork in October to change the name to Elijah Madison Lane.

Some have said the Old Slave Road name honors the area’s history and the black families who lived there descendants of slaves who came to the area from Virginia in 1837. Others find the name offensive.
