This week, Greater St. Louis, Inc. wrapped up its yearlong, 15-county tour of the St. Louis metro, with trips to Jersey and Calhoun Counties in Illinois on Monday, and St. Louis County in Missouri on Tuesday — part of its initiative to strengthen the region’s local business districts and corridors of commerce. 

“The STL 2030 Jobs Plan calls for the development of this initiative to strengthen and grow local centers of business across the metro,” said Jason Hall, CEO of Greater St. Louis, Inc. “Revitalizing and supporting these key business districts while maintaining the distinct character that makes them so special will help stabilize local communities, revive small businesses, and create new jobs.”

Meeting with business owners and leaders provided the opportunity to better connect with all 15 counties in the St. Louis metro and strengthen ongoing regional relationships, key to advancing inclusive economic growth and implementing the STL 2030 Jobs Plan. The connections made throughout the year will move the metro forward for years to come.
