NUC 2021 | St Louis: A New Urban Champion

St. Louis
A New Urban Champion

New Urban Champions is an initiative created to showcase the most successful, but less frequently told stories of collaboration, growth, and problem-solving happening in mid-sized cities that deserve a greater share of the spotlight.

NewCities convened its first New Urban Champions Learning Expedition in Columbus, Ohio in October 2018. For this second edition, NewCities teams up with the St. Louis Development Corporation to present St. Louis, Missouri as a New Urban Champion. This issue is a voice-driven editorial sparking those tough conversations and opening the floor to honest dialogue; telling the story of St. Louis through the narratives of some of its most inspiring community leaders.
