Tonight I attended the Paul McKee meeting at the Central Baptist Church on Washington in Midtown (yes, I've been in town for the past couple days). From the sound of the meeting, it was similar to, if not the same as, the event held last week that was exclusive to invited stakeholders. Therefore, offering a summary would just be a repetition of earlier posts from other blogs--Ecology of Absence, Urban Review, Vanishing STL, St. Louis Urban Workshop, and others.
I don't know if the last meeting had a particularly potty-mouthed heckler that had to be dragged from the meeting, but this one did.
I'll hold my full thoughts until this thing develops further. For now, I think that this is a more than moving description of, shall I say, a couple caveats about the Blairmont "redevelopment" project: read Curious Feet's beautiful post here.
