The Sanctuary: 21st Ward Community Center
4449 Red Bud Ave
The 21st Ward contains some of St. Louis’s most beautiful neighborhoods and green spaces. Not content to watch these treasures slip into decline, the ward’s leadership, from Alderman Antonio French to dedicated staffers and neighborhood residents, has been hard at work to make it a better place to live, work, and visit. From new walking trails in lush O’Fallon Park, to a partnership with Rebuilding Together St. Louis for a Block-by-Block Initiative that sees one historic block renovated and cleaned up at a time, the 21st Ward has no shortage of initiatives that the rest of the city’s 27 Wards could and should be watching and learning from.
City Affair is proud to announce that Alderman Antonio French, State Representative Jamilah Nasheed and Preservation Research Office Director Michael Allen will present us with an overview of the tremendous activity and forward momentum in the 21st Ward. All of this will take place in the ward’s planned community center–an historic church recently rescued from vacancy.
Doors open at 7:00 PM, event begins at 7:30.
