University City Mayor Terry Crow and University City City Manager Gregory Rose will provide a comprehensive overview of the past year and unveil plans for 2024 during the 13th annual State of the City program, hosted by the Historical Society of University City. The event is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. on Thurs., Mar. 7, in the Council Chambers on the fifth floor of City Hall, 6801 Delmar Blvd. This engaging program is free and open to the public.
Eleanor Mullin, president of the Historical Society of University City, explained that the event is an annual March tradition, coinciding with the birthday of the City's founder and inaugural Mayor, Edward Gardner Lewis, born on Mar. 4, 1869.
Crow expressed gratitude for the platform provided by the Historical Society, "The Market at Olive Development has changed the economic landscape in our community. I appreciate the Historical Society giving us the opportunity to report on the Council’s accomplishments in 2023 and what’s being planned for 2024,” said Crow.
Rose reflected on the challenges and accomplishments of 2023. “Although 2023 had its unique challenges, we also experienced significant accomplishments.
