Purchasing LRA Property

Old North St. Louis has several opportunities to develop city-owned property through the Land Reutilization Authority (LRA). Through our long relationship with the city, we do ask that all LRA purchase and option applications be vetted by the neighbors to ensure alignment with our collective vision for the community. This process allows us to issue a letter of support for your application to the city. The Real Estate Committee of ONSLRG is here to help guide you through that process.

Neighborhood Vision

The neighborhood is currently in the process of updating our vision and plans for development, working with several partners to accomplish these goals. In the fall of 2020, with the support of a generation donation, the neighborhood completed an updated needs assessment and action plan. This document will help guide our upcoming neighborhood planning process slated to begin with the City of St. Louis and Project Connect during 2022 and 2023.
