St. Louis Port Authority expansion could help pay for MLS stadium

An effort to expand the boundaries of the St. Louis Port Authority stalled at the Board of Aldermen on Friday amid questions about oversight of the powerful economic development body and controversy over St. Louis County’s port authority.  

But not mentioned in the debate was the most recent impetus behind the port authority’s expansion: its potential role in financing a Major League Soccer stadium.  

Expanding the St. Louis Port Authority from the 19 miles of Mississippi River frontage to cover the entire city has been in the works since January, when the port board advanced a measure beginning the process. Yet, despite still needing aldermen and the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission to sign off on the expansion, little movement has happened on the measure until recently.
