The South Grand Community Improvement District’s mission is to cultivate a robust and supportive business climate on South Grand in order to establish the Tower Grove community as the premiere urban lifestyle district in the Saint Louis Metropolitan area. The District is located just south of Tower Grove Park from Arsenal to Utah Street on South Grand Blvd. Our vision is to further enhance the South Grand Community Improvement District to become a thriving self-sufficient vibrant community that emphasizes safety, cleanliness, promotions, quality tenant attraction and retention, and infrastructure improvements. But issues arise during the pursuit of business and the District must deal with these challenges in an organized and transparent way. Thus, a Special Use District, a set of rules that govern business operations, is created. The Special Use District will add additional regulations for signage: use and business types within the business district, storefront visibility, size for signage and outdoor lighting requirements. What makes it work on South Grand is engagement with the community.
