“Putting the Pieces Together”: Solving the Puzzle of STL Regional Collaboration

“Putting the Pieces Together”  —  the next Construction Forum STL program,  scheduled for Dec. 6  —  begins an ambitious, rigorous 13-month, five-program examination of  the issue of establishing effective regional collaboration for the St. Louis region.

The event will be held from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. on Dec. 6 at Sheet Metal Workers Local 36 Grand Hall, 2319 Chouteau Ave. There is no charge to attend, but registration is required. To register, click here.

With the efforts of “Better Together STL” to resuscitate City/County merger garnering headlines both locally and nationally (in last Saturday’s Wall Street Journal), the Forum’s board of directors wanted to take a look at what has and has not worked vis a vis regional collaboration in other areas of the country, and engage Forum participants in “hacking” the possibilities of what could happen here.

The Forum has arranged to bring regional government expert David Rusk here for the Dec. 6 event. Rusk is a former Wilson and Brookings Scholar and was the mayor of Albuquerque. He is the author of Cities Without Suburbs, the definitive, data-driven book on regional government and regional collaboration.
