10th Anniversary of UrbanReviewSTL.com!!

In February 2009 a couple of friends noticed me on Google's Street View, this would've been prior to 2/1/2008.
I try to avoid using images from Google’s Street View, but this one of me on my scooter from before my 2/1/2008 stroke is a favorite. Discov

There are very few things I’ve done consistently for a full decade. Who knew when I started blogging on Halloween Day in 2004 I’d still be doing so a decade later? I would’ve laughed then if you’d said I’d be celebrating the 10th anniversary. I almost didn’t make it to the 4th.

I can tell you nothing else I’ve done in my nearly 50 years comes close to the joy & clarity this blog gives me.  I’ve learned you can plan all you want but life throws things at you that weren’t anticipated, you’ve got to continually reevaluate and change. St. Louis hasn’t learned this yet, our 1947 Comprehensive Master Plan still guides much of our development patterns nearly seven decades later.

Am I celebrating? Yes, meeting my husband today for lunch, photographing updates for a prior post. If you see me out and about please be sure to say hello!

Thank you for reading,

    Yes. it’s wonderful the way you have established Urban Review and guided it over the years, I agree with JZ when he says it takes an incredible effort to produce Urban Review and it is a great asset for St. Louis.
    You recently highlighted good and bad outcomes that you have reported on in the past. What do you think are some key discussions to have over the next ten years?
