        On January 30, 2013, the City of University City (City) and the University City Chamber of Commerce (Chamber) co-hosted an Olive Boulevard Business Forum at University City Heman Park Community Center. The meeting provided property owners, businesses, and other interested parties with an update of plans, programs, projects, and events related to Olive Boulevard. Mayor Shelley Welsch welcomed over fifty attendees and introduced Andrea Riganti and Raymond Lai from the Department of Community Development along with University City Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Ellen Bern. The meeting displayed concerted efforts between the Chamber and the City in enhancing economic development within the Olive Corridor. Police Captain Carol Jackson spoke on the Police Department's enhanced safety efforts and a security audit program, whereby the Police Department works with businesses in creating safe environments.

        The presentations from both the City and the Chamber described the collaborative goals in growing business and competing regionally. Descriptions of the four design districts of the Olive Boulevard corridor (Interchange District, International District, Parkway District, and Industrial District) provided insights into the City's planning efforts and overall physical vision for the corridor as a whole. Other projects were discussed at the forum and include sustainable development planning, collaborative planning with neighboring Olivette, and an upcoming update of the University City Comprehensive Plan. Many of the community members in attendance expressed interest in the topics, engaged in the meeting's dialogue, and signed up to work more intimately with two to-be-formed Chamber committees: Olive Business Committee and Retail Committee. Those who attended the meeting took full advantage of the time to connect with the Department of Community Development, the Chamber of Commerce, Captain Jackson, and Mayor Welsch. The meeting sparked important conversations that will likely better communication efforts within the corridor and maintain growth in the area.

        The entire presentation can be viewed on University City's website at http://mo-universitycity.civicplus.com/DocumentCenter/View/6486 or by going to the Department of Community Development's webpage on http://ucitymo.org and looking under the "New" header.
