Patterson to Speak at Upcoming Rehabber’s Club Class

February 13, 2005 25th Ward 1 Comment

I’m happy to announce that I will be part of a panel at Tuesday’s Rehabber’s Club Class. The class title is called Urban Revitalization and You. Below is an excerpt from the class description:

Driving along some streets in our city, have you ever wondered about why some areas prosper and others seemingly, do not? Why, despite many obvious positive attributes, some neighborhoods just look worn out? Have you ever wished that, as a rehabber and concerned citizen, you could do something about that? Well, this might just be the class to start you on your way.

The Rehabber’s Club Classes are $10 per person and are held at the Central Reform Congregation at Kingshighway & Waterman. Click here for more information.

See you Tuesday February 15th at 7pm (doors open at 6:30pm),

Signs of Change!

February 13, 2005 25th Ward Comments Off on Signs of Change!

We’ve now got over a hundred signs throughout the ward – on Meramec, on Grand, on Virginia, on Taft… Well, you get the idea. Signs of change are all over the ward. My signs are what the best dressed yards are wearing this election cycle!

If you’d like a sign for your yard simply send me an email with your name & address and someone will get you a sign within 24 hours. Be sure to talk to your neighbors and ask them if they’d like a yard sign as well.

Also, if you can volunteer to help distribute literature within the ward and/or work a couple of hours at the polls on election day (March 8th) send an email to [email protected] with your name, address and phone number.

Your support is greatly appreciated!!!

Western Lanes selling off their wooden lanes?

February 11, 2005 25th Ward Comments Off on Western Lanes selling off their wooden lanes?

Over on the Urban St. Louis Forum some are saying recently closed Western Lanes is selling off the wooden lanes. Most of the discussion centers on Slay vs. Smith but this closed 25th Ward business was discussed.

If Western Lanes is indeed selling the wooden lanes for use in another bowling alley the likelihood of another company coming and reopening the bowling alley are greatly diminished. I’m making some inquiries to determine the status of the lanes and potential sale of the building.

Downtown Brown Bag Meet & Greet a Huge Hit

February 11, 2005 25th Ward Comments Off on Downtown Brown Bag Meet & Greet a Huge Hit

Business owners and community leaders Margie Newman and Alan Brunettin hosted a brown bag meet & greet for me today at their downtown gallery, Urbis Orbis.

The group in attendance was decidedly progressive and with the exception of one person, all live outside my ward. This is a good thing. With strong support from both in the ward and outside the ward money is coming in the door (via PayPal) daily and volunteers are lining up to help. Today’s group represented the preservation movement, former Metropolis officers, architects (yes, plural) and other small business owners in the city.

As you’d expect, nobody from Civic Progress was there to wish me well.

While the discussion centered mostly on my campaign we touched on issues relevant to the entire city such as updating the city’s antiquated zoning codes and setting out a vision for the future beyond the predictable 5-year consolidated plan strategy.

To Margie & Alan – thank you so much for arranging this event. This combined with all the coffee’s I’ve been doing in private homes throughout the ward will make a difference on March 8th.
