W E LCO M E From the Chamber

O

n behalf of the Greater St. Charles County Chamber of Commerce, I want to welcome you to our community. For more than 35 years, St. Charles County has been one of the fastest-growing counties in Missouri. With a population approaching 400,000 residents, St. Charles County has grown into the third-largest county in Missouri. We offer a well-educated workforce, boast the highest median household income in the state, are ranked among the healthiest counties in Missouri and have an unemployment rate below both the state and national averages.

MOSTCCW17 design_ads.indd 9

Over the years, the Chamber, along with business and community leaders, has worked hard to ensure that the future remains bright for St. Charles County. As a result, St. Charles County is no longer a place where commuters just sleep – it is a county were people live, work and play. We have a diverse economy with numerous employment opportunities, abundant recreational activities, great health care, top-notch school districts, a growing number of national and locally owned shopping and dining options, and was recently named one of the top 25 counties in the country for tech job growth by the Progressive Policy Institute.

City or country, historic or new, indoor or outdoor, affordable or priceless – no matter your preference, we have it all. Thank you for your interest in St. Charles County. Whether you are here for a visit or here for life, we hope you find our community to be the inviting and vibrant place we’ve worked so hard to create. Sincerely, Scott Tate President & CEO Greater St. Charles County Chamber of Commerce

BUSINESS AND ECONOMIC PROFILE St. Charles County is an Economic Leader in Metro St. Louis

A

s one of the largest economies in the St. Louis region and the state of Missouri, St. Charles County has proven itself to be a dynamic and attractive community for businesses of all sizes, from global giants to local entrepreneurs. Crucial to the area’s success are business-friendly principles such as lower tax rates, competitive operational costs, highly skilled workforce, proximity to important markets, first-rate infrastructure, low cost of living and abundant local amenities. For decades, this award-winning area has been investing community capital to foster excellence in public and higher education, create more than 23,000 acres of public parkland and other recreational facilities, and provide more than $500 million in local transportation infrastructure improvements. Thanks in part to this concentrated focus on pursuing progress, St. Charles County has a lot of new commercial development completed or under construction in 2017. During first-quarter 2017, the community’s unemployment rate was also impressive, falling to 3.2 percent. Some of the largest business projects under construction or recently completed in the

12

community include the 614,000-square-foot expansion of General Motors Wentzville assembly plant, a 1.13 million-square-foot warehouse and subassembly facility near the General Motors assembly plant constructed by NorthPoint Development, Reckitt Benckiser’s new 715,000-square-foot warehouse and Best Buy’s new 252,000-square-foot warehouse and distribution center in Premier 370 Business Park, new restaurant and retail additions to the Streets of St. Charles mixed-use commercial and residential development, GBT Realty’s 270,000-square-foot retail development – The Shoppes at Mid Rivers (the largest retail project in the region since 2008) and a host of other industrial, institutional, and retail developments. From one end of the community to another, new hotels, restaurants, and attractions are opening to serve the growing population base. “Greater St. Charles is one of the most desirable places to live and work,” said Scott Tate, president & CEO of the Greater St. Charles County Chamber of Commerce. “Municipalities throughout the community make it easy for businesses to open. Strong business organizations in the county and recent legislation passed by pro-business legislators have made St.

Charles County and the State of Missouri great places to do business.” Another indicator of success and consumer confidence is our continued upswing in retail shopping in the community. For 2016, St. Charles County set a record with nearly $5.9 billion in retail sales. That was a 3.81 percent increase over the previous year and the highest ever for the area. Today, some 8,500 companies are thriving in St. Charles County. International titans here include The Boeing Company, Coca-Cola, Cisco, Citi, MasterCard Worldwide, General Motors, Verizon, Enterprise Holdings, Nike, Alpla, Reckitt Benckiser and many more. There are also countless local success stories as homegrown entrepreneurs make a name for themselves here, across America and around the world. Hometown business heroes include LMI Aerospace, Patriot Machine, Boardpaq, Client Services, Ungerboeck Software International, Synergetics USA and others. In addition, local start-ups Liviara (luxury lingerie) and jBloom (jewelry) have recently received national attention which has resulted in higher sales and the need to expand in large part to the mentorship and business incubation

provided through the EDC Business and Community Partners in St. Peters and OPO Startups in St. Charles. First-class education, continuing education and advanced studies are foundational to current and future prosperity for individuals, families, and businesses in the area. Nearly 43 percent of county residents are college graduates, and the community has an abundance of exemplary public, private and trade schools and institutions of higher learning. These include Lindenwood University (a member of the NCAA Division 2), St. Charles Community College, Webster University at WingHaven, Midwest University, Vatterott College, Rankin Technical College – Wentzville Campus and the Lewis and Clark Career Center. With an estimated 2016 population of 390,918, more than 30,000 new residents have moved to St. Charles County since 2010, making it the fastest growing part of metro St. Louis and Missouri. In light of explosive residential and commercial growth in the area, it is easy to see why the three-sided convergence of Interstate 70, Highway 94 and Interstate 64 has long been nicknamed “The Golden Triangle.” Meanwhile, the community celebrated the realization of a 20-year dream when the long-awaited, $118.2 million Highway 364 Phase III extension opened in late 2014. This new cross-county corridor or provides an important link from Highway 94 in St. Charles/St.Peters area to Interstate 64 in Dardenne Prairie/Lake Saint Louis area. This new highway is dramatically improving traffic flow and opening new areas for residential, recreational and commercial development. In fact, in 2016, Hwy. 364 surpassed Interstate 70 to become the busiest Missouri River bridge-crossing between St. Charles and St. Louis County during morning and afternoon rush hours. “St. Charles County is quite literally a great place to grow your business and your life,” said Greg Prestemon, president & CEO of the Economic Development Center of St. Charles County (EDC). “We encourage you to visit and see why so many people and companies have decided to make this their home in the American heartland.” Thanks to the county’s low unemployment rate, growing transportation infrastructure, and all our economic development partners, the future continues to look good for entrepreneurs, high-tech start-ups, and overall business and economic growth in St. Charles County.

Shoppes at Mid Rivers Scheduled for completion in fall 2017, Shoppes at Mid Rivers in St. Peters will offer the area expanded retail options for their everyday necessities and specialty purchases. The 28-acre site at Mid Rivers Mall Drive and Interstate 70, in the center of Saint Charles County, will add to an already thriving retail area that features the only regional mall in the county, Mid Rivers Mall, directly south of the new Shoppes on the opposite side of Interstate 70. The Shoppes at Mid Rivers will be just west of Lou Fusz Chevrolet and will be anchored by major retailers Academy Sports + Outdoors, a premier provider of sports and outdoor products, hunting, fishing and camping gear, apparel and more; and Marshalls & HomeGoods, delivering ever-changing selections of designer fashions and name-brand merchandise for all aspects of home. Burlington (formerly known as Burlington Coat Factory), opening its sixth location in the Saint Louis metro area, as well as Ross, ULTA Beauty, Five Below, Famous Footwear and Carter’s OshKosh B’gosh are also opening their doors at the new Shoppes at Mid Rivers. The new development is the work of GBT Realty Corp., based in Brentwood, Tennesee, with MJM Architects of Nashville designing and local builders Knoebel Construction of Chesterfield, Missouri.

The park was named in honor of the Sisters of Mercy Founder Catherine McAuley, who had special concern for children and women who were poor and underserved. The McAuley Playground, a place where limitations will be forgotten and differences are celebrated, is a partnership between Mercy Kids, Unlimited Play and the city of Cottleville.

CITY OF ST. CHARLES

The City of St. Charles School District is building tomorrow’s leaders, but it also has played an integral role in the city’s rich past. Most of the district is located in St. Charles proper, with a small percentage in St. Peters plus some unincorporated areas. Established in 1846, it covers 17 square miles. About 4,900 students are enrolled in the district’s six elementary schools (grades preschool-4), intermediate school (grades 5-6), middle school (grades 7-8) and two high schools. In addition, the district features the Lewis and Clark Career Center, which serves students across St. Charles County. The City of St. Charles schools’ mission is to “reach, teach and empower all students by providing a challenging, diverse and innovative education.” In April 2017, voters approved Proposition KIDS – a no-tax-rate bond issuance that will generate approximately $47 million for the district. Plans include upgrading facilities, significantly improving learning environments for all learners, and construction of an early childhood center. Then again, the district has always had its eye on improvement and success: it earned its first Distinction in Performance for Improvement from the Department of Elementary and

22

Secondary Schools in 2006 and has won this award every year since. Both high schools are designated A+ Schools. Values that the district promotes include providing high-quality education for all students; achievement through individual success, collaboration with parents and community stakeholders; exploration, innovation and creativity; hiring and retaining high-quality staff; and making informed decisions that are student centered, data driven and fiscally responsible. Contact St. Charles schools at (636) 443-4000 or visit www.stcharles.k12.mo.us.

FORT ZUMWALT

Come to Fort Zumwalt School District, and you’ll find educators whose interests extend beyond academics, as evidenced by their longstanding “Pushing for Positive Peer Influence” motto. The district, based in O’Fallon, serves about 18,000 students in 24 schools across 136 square miles. It is the fourth-largest district in the bistate region, with 1,414 teachers, 1,271 support staff and 72 administrators. Three of its four high schools recently were named to the “U.S. News and World Report” list of America’s best high schools. Fort Zumwalt’s mission is to ensure that “students, regardless of ability or economic level,

are provided an education in such a positive and safe learning environment that all reach their potential.” The district emphasizes the virtues of democracy, citizenship, self-discipline, work ethic and the need to respect all members of society. Recently, the district opened the Mike Clemens Center for Adaptive Learning for students and families who require a support system for social/emotional, behavioral, autism, and/or academic needs. Other developments include Flint Hill Elementary, which opened in fall 2016, and the Early Childhood Center, which is slated to open in fall 2017. When it comes to both athletics and the fine arts, various school groups consistently nab awards and distinctions. Contact the district at (636) 240-2072 or visit www.fz.k12.mo.us.

Private Education Options While public schools have plenty of advocates and success stories, some families prefer the atmosphere and philosophy of a private school education. Proponents say private schools with smaller enrollment numbers are better prepared to offer smaller class sizes and more individualized instruction. Another advantage, some say, is that private schools are designed to draw people together over shared values. The St. Charles County area has a number of private education options. One such learning institution is Duchesne High School. Here, administrators and staff are committed to providing an exceptional education experience by helping each student grow in mind, body and spirit. Duchesne is a coeducational school where academic excellence is second to none. Its intimate student body size of 330 provides a warm, familial atmosphere where students have opportunities and success in athletics, the arts and STEM competitions. Duchesne promotes a lifelong devotion to service to others, Catholic faith, Christian living and continual learning so that students may make informed choices and positive differences in the world. It’s located at 2550 Elm St. in St. Charles. Contact them at (636) 946-6767 or visit www.duchesne-hs.org. Another highly-regarded private school in the area is Living Word Christian School; students come here from across five counties and 40 ZIP codes. The school prides itself on delivering a Christ-centered education while empowering students through more than 80 different classes, including foreign languages, computer courses, food sciences, biology, chemistry, physics and in-house college credit courses. It has two sites in St. Peters: a preschool, and an elementary campus that serves K-5. The middle school and the high school are at the same convenient location at 1145 Tom Ginnever Ave. in O’Fallon. Contact the school at (636) 978-1680 or visit www.lwcs.us.

The Rivers: Then & Now

R

ivers are a true wonder of nature. Their majestic beauty has inspired countless poets, painters, artists – and regular Joes. They continue a centuries-old method of transportation. And they present the perfect getaway, for either respite and play, while providing a breathtaking backdrop to watch nature at work, to cast a line or to drop a canoe. The St. Charles area is home to two of the state’s largest rivers: the Mighty Mississippi and its tributary, the Missouri – the longest river in the country. Flowing from the Great Lakes to the Gulf of Mexico, the Mississippi River is a transportation artery that is an integral part of the heart of the city and with a deep history. Spanish explorer Hernando de Soto first laid claim to the river in 1541, with French explorers Louis Joliet and Jacques Marquette following up in the 17th century and actually reaching as far as St. Charles County. The Mississippi was essential to the nation’s growth during the Industrial Revolution, proved to be a key strategic resource during the Civil War, and remains the primary source of drinking water for the region. Until the mid

30

19th century, both rivers were the primary routes of transportation in the Midwest – mainly by canoe, keelboat or steamboat. The railroad arrived in St. Charles County in the 1850s and became the major mode of travel until paved roads began being built in the 1920s. As for the Missouri River, it drains nearly one-sixth of the area of the United States. First fully explored by Lewis and Clark, the Missouri River winds across a whopping 530,000 square miles in North America. It extends from the Rocky Mountains east to the basin of the Mississippi. Today, the rivers do far more than provide transportation. Residents rely on them to generate hydroelectric power and to serve as major recreational attractions in the St. Charles region. Fishing is by far the biggest sport here. But there are other activities, as well. For example, the Missouri is home to a boat race across the entire state every August. The 340-mile journey, called the Missouri American Water MR340, ends in St. Charles. Participants are allowed 88 hours to complete the course. If a shorter trip is more your style, check out Missouri River Excursions in Defiance. It offers

canoe, kayak, or large-raft rentals for those looking to float the Missouri River on half- or full-day trips. Its counterpart, the Mississippi, is home to a wide array of fish and wildlife and is a major migratory flyway for many birds. Located at Confluence Point State Park is the 4,300-acre Columbia Bottom Conservation Area, which offers hunting, fishing, hiking, biking and bird-watching. Boating and yachting are big here, as evidenced by the number of marinas. The river’s island beaches create a picturesque setting where recreational boaters often throw parties. The Yacht Club of St. Louis sits on the Dardenne Slough. Members enjoy a private pool, two dining rooms, a riverside patio and live music. Further downstream, Palisades Marina & Yacht Club is a public boating and social club in Portage Des Sioux. The shrine to Our Lady of the Rivers can be seen downstream. In addition, John’s Boat Harbor is a full-service marina offering docking, dry storage, repairs and more. Truly, there are plenty of opportunities to experience the river life in St. Charles County.

uality of life is a major reason why people visit and even move to St. Charles County. Nature and green space play a pivotal role here, attracting folks from across state lines even. Good for a leisurely stroll as well as more rigorous hikes, local paths are a big draw for those who seek to bask in the great outdoors.

GREAT RIVERS GREENWAY

The Great Rivers Greenway is a network of parks and open spaces linked by greenways. It was created to connect the public more easily to rivers, parks and communities in St. Charles County, St. Louis County and the city of St. Louis. Created in 2000 after a citizen vote, the idea was to establish a community asset for generations to come. That vote created a sales tax that funds construction and maintenance of the greenway district. The biggest boon to the greenway lately has been all about bridges: construction has begun on bicycle and pedestrian bridges over highways 364 and 94 in St. Charles. To do so, the existing Centennial Greenway that links Heritage Park and the Katy Trail State Park will be extended to connect thousands of residents on both sides of the community. Plans call for a one-mile extension of the existing 2.2-mile Centennial Greenway just east of the Heritage Museum. The paved greenway will head north and cross both highways, where it will connect to Old Highway 94 near Muegge Road. The new route will enable on-street connections to several nearby parks, as well as the

McClay Branch of the St. Charles City-County Library and two schools. “This is a game-changing connection for people in the City of St. Charles, St. Charles County and beyond,” said St. Charles County Executive Steve Ehlmann. “By bridging these two highways, thousands of people who live, work, and go to school in this area will now be able to safely walk or ride a bike to get where they need to go.” In addition, the greenway expansion will have a rest stop landscaped with native plants.

AUGUST A. BUSCH MEMORIAL CONSERVATION AREA

The nearly 7,000-acre August A. Busch Memorial Conservation Area serves as the St. Louis regional Missouri Department of Conservation office and includes a visitor center. Fishing and hunting licenses are available here for use in roughly 30 lakes and ponds. Boat rentals are a big draw, as are managed deer hunts. Other outdoors attractions include hiking, picnicking, bird-watching areas, a shooting range, an archery range and prairie restoration spots.

KATY TRAIL STATE PARK

Another popular spot is the Katy Trail, which is a state park and a major attraction in the area. Here, outdoor enthusiasts can bike, run or hike along river bluffs and wooded areas. The Katy Trail is a 225-mile recreation rail trail that runs from St. Charles, near the confluence of the Mississippi and Missouri rivers, to Clinton, about 75 miles southeast of Kansas City.

Hardcore riding enthusiasts hit “the Mound,” which is a starting point for rides that connect to the Katy Trail. From there, they visit three parks (called the trifecta): Lost Valley, Matson Hill and Klondike Park, according to Ralph Pfremmer, executive director of Trailnet.

CITY AND COUNTY PARKS AND GREENWAYS

The St. Charles County Parks System is one of Pfremmer’s personal favorites. Don’t miss taking time to explore Lost Valley Trail in the Weldon Spring Conservation Area, located near Chesterfield. It features a Little Femme Osage Creek and a crystal-clear spring, and visitors often cross paths with deer and turkeys. Other trails not to be missed include Matson Hill Park Trail in Defiance and Augusta’s Klondike Park Trial, which features bluffs and a gorgeous lake. Multi-use trails in St. Charles County that permit horseback riding as well as hiking and biking are open at Broemmelsiek Park and Indian Camp Creek Park. The City of St. Charles offers trails of various lengths and surfaces in 11 different parks, in addition to the paved 3.8mile hike and bike Boschert Greenway. Not to be overlooked, Centennial Greenway is a 20-mile track that connects people to nature as an off-street bicycle and pedestrian trail and linear park. It runs from St. Charles County to downtown St. Louis, offering a direct connection to the paved Creve Coeur Connector trail that takes you across the Missouri River and links up with the paved trails and other attractions in Creve Coeur County Park.

T

here is no shortage on celebrations in St. Charles County. When seasons shift and holidays approach, the region almost always has a special event, festival or tradition to mark the occasion.

This family-oriented event is a cross between silly and macabre and encourages attendees to get into the “spirit” for All Hallow’s Eve. The festival features scarecrows, hayrides through history and ghostly guests on historic Main Street. GSTCCC.COM
