ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. – A brand new project was dedicated to the north St. Louis County community of Pagedale Saturday.
The $6.5 million development called Carter Commons is named after former Pagedale Mayor Mary Carter.
The building houses six minority-owned businesses, as well as a community kitchen where youngsters can learn skills to help them succeed.
A large crowd turned out for a special dedication. The project was spearheaded by the community development organization Beyond Housing.
The president and CEO says this is a way to tackle the big challenges that a St Louis County community is facing.
It’s part of the second phase of a project that brought a cinema, health center, bank, and other facilities to the north county city that’s seeing a rebirth.
