Missouri city places $85 million municipal complex on ballot

March 25, 2024

The city of St. Charles, Missouri, will place the $85 million Proposition C in front of voters to replace the functionally obsolete city hall. The current 52-year-old building was built for a population of 17,000, which has since more than quadrupled. The structure lacks adequate space, has outdated technology and requires updated security to better serve the community. The vote will be April 2, 2024.

The city center complex would house the city hall, providing extra office space, and an expanded historical society. The complex would include updated fire-suppression systems to promote safety. The city would consolidate services for residents to a single floor, increasing accessibility and convenience.

Plans include a separate building that would house the redesigned senior center. The senior center will also feature a rec center component. The city would use the same building to create council chambers separate from city hall for public meetings and events.

The complex would feature other community amenities, including an arts and cultural center, daycare and Sister Cities International offices. Mixed-use developments such as apartments and restaurants will complement the area.

The city would build the complex at the American Car Foundry property, providing direct connections between the historic main street district and Frenchtown cultural hubs. The complex would include a connected parking garage. Plans include walkways throughout the complex that connect with the nearby Katy Trail.
