Dellwood: A city on the move

As we embark on the three year anniversary of the death of Michael Brown Jr., we know that communities, families, protesters and the media have all been impacted by the death of this young African American male.

Much has been said about the City of Ferguson and the civil unrest that took place in 2014. However, little has been mentioned about the real impact that the civil rest has had on other surrounding municipalities, such as Dellwood. The City of Dellwood, which is 1.1 square miles, has a population of approximately 5,000 residents, median household income of $43,210, a home ownership rate of 76%, commercial retail trade and food and drink sales for FY 2017 was $93,800,475 (this is within a ½ mile radius of West Florissant Avenue and Chambers Road), median disposable income of $38,536 and approximately 30,000 cars traveling our commercial district of West Florissant Avenue per day, suffered tremendously during this period of time.

As many as 10 businesses were completely burned down. These businesses include: Auto Zone, Advance Auto Parts, Juanita’s Fashion R Boutique, Dellwood Market, Clean World Laundromat, On On Chop Suey, Prime Beauty, Conoco, Queens Royal Touch Salon and Spa, and Title Max. These are businesses that the residents of Dellwood are no longer able to patronize in the community they live in.

However, we are a city of resiliency and many opportunities. As the Mayor of Dellwood, it was important to reassess and think strategic about growth and redevelopment, leveraging partnerships with St. Louis Economic Development Partnership, Regional Business Council, St. Louis Promise Zone, North County Incorporated, St. Louis County, U.S. Department of Commerce Economic Development Administration, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (Region 7), U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, Missouri Department of Natural Resources, City of Ferguson, City of Jennings, Private commercial property owners and the great residents of Dellwood.

Over the last three years, the City of Dellwood, with the support and hard work of our partners has done the following:

  • Passed a $7 million bond to resurface borough streets and erect new signage
  • Awarded a grant from the St. Louis Municipal Park Grant Commission to make necessary upgrades and improvements to Dellwood Recreation Center
  • Made upgrades to the baseball fields at Dellwood Park (on West Florissant Avenue)
  • Partnering with St. Louis County, City of Ferguson and East-West Gateway Council of Governments on West Florissant Avenue Great Streets Project (currently in conceptual design phase)
  • Partnering with the St. Louis Economic Development Partnership and St. Louis County Port Authority to do beautification projects and façade improvements along the commercial corridor of West Florissant Avenue, Washington University Olin Business School to offer business development capacity to small business owners (St. Louis Port Authority recently awarded a $15,000 grant to expand this program with Washington University’s Olin Business School)
  • Partnered with the City of Ferguson and St. Louis Economic Development Partnership to form the West Florissant Business Association
  • Partnering with the St. Louis Economic Development Partnership, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (Region 7), private commercial property owners and Missouri Department of Natural Resources to begin Phase I and Phase II Environmental Assessments of vacant commercial properties, conceptual redevelopment plans for four commercial sites on West Florissant Avenue (Former Auto Zone, Former Advance Auto Parts, Former Juanita’s Fashion R Boutique and Former Discount Tire).

When you consider a history which spans nearly 70 years, the City of Dellwood has a lot to be proud of. It has seen many periods of growth and prosperity.  It’s no secret the past three years have been really tough on everyone in this community, but we feel like the weight is starting to swing in a positive way. We want to create an environment that people can work, live, play and feel safe in doing so.

We still have much more work to do, but there is an enormous amount of opportunities in the City of Dellwood. The St. Louis region is a terrific place to work, live and play — and that includes Dellwood.  We hope business owners and developers will consider us moving forward because I truly believe the future looks bright.

  14. Today, I went to the beach front with my kids.

    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She
    placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and
    it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to
    tell someone!

  15. Thanks for some other informative web site. Where
    else may just I am getting that type of information written in such a perfect method?
    I have a mission that I’m just now operating on, and I have been at the look out
    for such info.

  16. Howdy! I could have sworn I’ve been to this website before but after reading through some
    of the post I realized it’s new to me. Anyhow, I’m definitely
    delighted I found it and I’ll be bookmarking and checking back frequently!

  17. I don’t even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was great.
    I do not know who you are but definitely you’re going to a famous blogger if you aren’t already 😉 Cheers!

  18. You are so cool! I do not believe I’ve read a single thing like that
    before. So wonderful to find someone with some genuine thoughts
    on this subject matter. Really.. thank you for starting this up.
    This web site is something that is needed on the internet,
    someone with a bit of originality!

  19. I’m not sure exactly why but this blog is loading very slow for me.

    Is anyone else having this issue or is it a issue on my end?
    I’ll check back later and see if the problem still exists.
