St. Louis, Mo. (KMOX) – The president of the Saint Louis Clergy Coalition knows what the neighborhood near where a proposed National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency west headquarters used to look like before the economic downturn of north Saint Louis. “When the church moved in the area it was fully equipped with people. Children playing in the street, people traveling to and fro on both sides of the street,” explains Pastor Charles Brown of Mount Airy Missionary Baptist Church. Brown is among those asking Saint Louisans to sign a White House petition, asking the federal government to pick the north Saint Louis site over one in the Metro-East.
