St. Louis, MO – The area's regional planning agency Wednesday gave its approval to the route and basic design of a proposed trolley through the Delmar Loop. The route approved by the East-West Gateway Council of Governments would run from the History Museum in Forest Park to a stop just east of University City's city hall.
Clayton, MO – The St. Louis County Council is once again discussing a ban on smoking in most public places.
The Council narrowly defeated a ban in 2005 and 2006. The effort now is to put a ban on the November 2009 ballot.
A vote will likely come next week; the sponsor, Councilwoman Barbara Fraser from the Fifth District has not decided whether she will exempt casinos and bars that make less than 25 percent of their money from the sale of foods.
