We have a diverse economy with numerous employment opportunities, abundant recreational amenities, great health care, top-notch school districts, national and locally owned shopping and dining options, new and expanding businesses, and a growing start-up community.

ECONOMIC LEADER IN METRO ST. LOUIS

W

ith an estimated 2018 population of 395,504, more than 35,000 new residents have moved to St. Charles County since 2010, making it the fastestgrowing part of metro St. Louis and Missouri, and with good reason. Over the past several years, cities in St. Charles County have been ranked among the top places to live in the

10

United States. Lower tax rates, competitive operational costs, a highly skilled workforce, proximity to important markets, first rate infrastructure, low cost of living, and abundant local amenities are all crucial to the county’s success. “St. Charles County 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 county 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.” Thanks in part to a concentrated focus on pursuing progress, St. Charles County has a lot of new commercial and industrial development completed or under construction. For many years, the county’s unemployment rate has been the lowest in the St. Louis region, hovering around 3 percent in 2018. As 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. Today, some 8,500 companies are thriving in St. Charles County. International titans here include The Boeing Company, Citi, MasterCard Worldwide, General Motors, Verizon, Enterprise Holdings, Nike, Reckitt Benckiser, Amazon and Fed-Ex. There are also countless local success stories as homegrown entrepreneurs make a name for themselves here, across America, and around the world.

The region’s next success story might be found at OPO Startups, a 10,000 square-foot co-working center on Main Street in St. Charles, where entrepreneurs can connect, work and collaborate. Another indicator of success and consumer confidence is our continued upswing in retail shopping in the community. In 2016, St. Charles County set a record with nearly $5.9 billion in retail sales. Finally, St. Charles County is consistently ranked among the healthiest (seven consecutive years in the top three and ranked No. 75 in 2018 by U.S. News & World Reports), wealthiest (median household income of $80,696 in 2016) and wisest (43 percent of residents are college graduates) counties in Missouri.

renchtown is a historic neighborhood and business district on the northeastern edge of St. Charles. It features an up-and-coming antiques and art district along North Second Street, a treasure trove of French-colonial-style architecture, and a vibrant small-town feeling. Recently, the Greater St. Charles County Chamber of Commerce organized a group of enthusiastic business owners, residents, property owners, and city officials to look at revitalizing the neighborhood. This group has now formally evolved into the Frenchtown Revitalization Partnership and meets regularly at St. Charles City Hall. In 2018, the City of St. Charles contracted with HyettPalma, a consulting firm specializing in the economic enhancement of downtowns and older commercial districts. The same firm also did a study in 2003, but due to changes in residents, businesses and property owners, the committee felt it is important to update the study and give guidance on what should be done to revitalize the district. HyettPalma returned in late-2018 to do an audit of their previous study and to update their recommendations based on new community feedback. The Frenchtown Revitalization Partnership is now in the process of implementing the recommendations and spearheading the revitalization efforts. Keep an eye on Frenchtown. Exciting things are about to happen!

The outpatient pediatric therapy program delivers clinically based occupational, physical and speech/language therapy in group and individual settings for children age birth through 10 years. The therapy is individualized to the specific needs of children with developmental disabilities. Therapists help children improve fine and gross motor skills and teach them how to pronounce words, listen and communicate. They also help them develop social skills so they can improve their interactions with peers and family. For adults with cognitive or other developmental disabilities, one of the most sought-after agencies is Emmaus Homes. It is a faith-based, nonprofit organization providing around the clock services to more than 275 adults with developmental disabilities in the St. Louis metropolitan area. Its mission is to help clients live as independently as possible in the

        

                

community of their choice. The St. Charlesbased nonprofit serves clients in more than 70 homes throughout Franklin, Warren, St. Charles and St. Louis counties.

AUTISM EDUCATION AND SUPPORT

Kids and adults with autism and behaviors that require support have an ideal place to learn and get support at the Center for Autism Education in O’Fallon. The center was started over 10 years ago as the last resource for many children who struggle with extreme

and challenging behaviors. Since then it has become a leader in this area, earning notice as successfully working with the most challenging of children.

CANCER TREATMENT

St. Charles County residents can receive world-class cancer care close to home at the Siteman Cancer Center facility on the campus of Barnes-Jewish St. Peters Hospital. The Center opened in 2005 and doubled the size of its facilities to 37,000 square feet in 2017. The location offers many adult cancer services, including medical therapy, radiation therapy and education and support programs. Medical and radiation oncologists and surgeons from Washington University provide care at the Center. Other medical staff members include nurse practitioners, oncology-certified nurses, a dietitian, social worker and support personnel.

SENIOR CARE

Because seniors often need increased care, local providers offer a range of options, such as long-term rehabilitation, nursing care, assisted living and memory-care services. At-home assistance is provided through a variety of home health service organizations, including Assistance Home Care and Visiting Angels of Greater St. Charles.

Private Education

W

hile 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. Other highly-regarded private schools in the area are in the Christian School District (previously known as Living Word Christian

Schools). 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.

Center for Advanced Professional Studies

I

n early-2017, a group of business leaders and educators saw the value of creating a consortium among the local public school districts to provide greater opportunities for students. By the end of 2017, St. Charles County Center for Advanced Professional Studies (CAPS) was formed so districts could partner to provide hands-on learning experiences to students who attend one of the five St. Charles County school districts. The St. Charles County CAPS program provides juniors and seniors with career-oriented experiences through real-world business immersion. These experiences provide students with insights that guide their future studies and careers and ensures that what they are learning

in the classroom is relevant to the workforce. In partnership with local businesses and communities, St. Charles County CAPS seeks

to provide students post-secondary options aligned to their passions and strengths. In the CAPS program, students fast forward into their future – they are immersed in a professional culture, solving real-world problems, using industry tools and are mentored by real employers. CAPS is a half-day program with the remainder of the day spent at the student’s home school. The typical morning CAPS session is from 7:30 to 10 a.m. and the afternoon session is usually from noon to 2:30 p.m. Current strands include: • Global Business/Entrepreneurship • Healthcare Academy • Technology Solutions GSTCCC.COM

HOMES & NEIGHBORHOODS

S

t. Charles County continues to be the fastest-growing county in Missouri and is staking its claim as a great place to live and work, not just as a bedroom community for St. Louis. The median home price – a strong indicator of the health of the housing market – went up by $15,000 in 2017 from a year prior, said Mark Stallman, CEO of St. Charles County Association of Realtors. The median price was $215,000 and homes on the market sold in an average of 11 days, he said. “It’s a good area for growth because we have top-rated schools, great neighborhoods, lots of variety in housing and fabulous recreational opportunities,” Stallman said. The county’s housing stock includes modest starter homes, luxury estates, apartment complexes and retirement-focused developments. Larger municipalities include St. Charles, St. Peters, O’Fallon, Dardenne Prairie, Lake Saint Louis, Wentzville, Cottleville and Weldon Spring, with several of them cited in a 2017 list of the top 50 safest cities in Missouri by the National Council for Home Safety and Security. Also, home security firm SafeWise ranked the safest 20 cities in Missouri based on FBI statistics and announced that two were in St. Charles County – Cottleville (second) and O’Fallon (10th), the only city with more than

28

50,000 population on the list). One of the most promising developments in the county in the last several years has been the job growth. While many residents still commute into the city, a growing number take a shorter commute to positions nearby at hospitals, General Motors and MasterCard, to name a few. This surge in job activity has helped drive growth in the western part of the county, especially near Wentzville, where there is more open land. St. Charles, recently ranked in Money magazine’s “Best Places to Live” and Where To Retire magazine’s “America’s Best Places to Retire”, offers the largest selection of traditional housing.The city’s historic Main Street area serves as a focal point for the area and tourist draw, with brick-lined streets and many buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places. One of the most popular developments in the city is the Streets of St. Charles, a mixeduse venue that offers entertainment, shopping, dining and residences. New luxury apartments here offer a plush urban atmosphere and nine floor plans. Options include balconies, terraces, a heated infinity pool, outdoor kitchen and grilling areas, hot tub, fire pit, business center, clubhouse, 24-hour fitness center complete with tanning bed and even a dog grooming parlor. In St. Peters, there are about 200

neighborhoods to explore, including traditional and upscale developments. The town, which was ranked 15th on a recent Money magazine “Best Places to Live” list, provides plenty of activities for its residents, including the popular Rec-Plex, which includes an ice rink, pools and much more. Wentzville, which is home to a General Motors auto assembly plant, has been one of the fastest growing cities in the state since 2000. It also is home to the county fairgrounds and the Greater St. Louis Renaissance Faire. O’Fallon, which has been ranked several times in the Money magazine “Best Places to Live” list, is the seventh-largest municipality in the state. One of the 2018 highlights for the city is the opening of the new Alligator’s Creek Aquatic Center on Memorial Day weekend. For retired residents, there are many options throughout the county for independent living, assisted living and nursing homes, including: ◆ Fairwinds – Rivers Edge in St. Charles. ◆ Villages of St. Peters & Villages of St. Peters Memory Care. ◆ Spencer Place in St. Peters. ◆ The Boulevard Senior Living in St. Charles. ◆ Cedarhurst in St. Charles. ◆ The Landing of O’Fallon (opening in summer 2018).

The Rivers

T

wo of the longest and most celebrated rivers in the country are literally in the backyard of St. Charles County residents – the Mississippi and Missouri. The county’s story is profoundly influenced by both rivers, whether it’s the historical connection to early businesses and residents in the area to current-day recreational use for boating, fishing and other pursuits. The Mississippi, which stretches 2,320 miles north to south from Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico, is the primary source of drinking water for the region. Its role in the history of the U.S. is well chronicled, from its early exploration to its status as a major transportation artery. The Missouri River, a tributary to the Mississippi, winds across 530,000 square miles in North America, from the Rocky Mountains east to the

32

basin of the Mississippi. The primary water-focused activity is fishing. The Missouri River is known for its catfish, but there are many others that can be hauled in to make for a productive day on the water. For a more strenuous activity, you can try the Missouri American Water MR340, which is the world’s longest non-stop canoe and kayak race. The event, which takes place in July, is a 340-mile journey across the state, from Kansas City to 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. To provide easy access to each river, the St. Charles County Parks and Recreation Department has free boat ramps off the Missouri River at Klondike Park in Augusta and off the Mississippi River at Hideaway Harbor Park in Portage des Sioux. The City of St. Charles Parks & Recreation Department also provides boat access at Blanchette Landing in DuSable Park. 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.

Outdoors and on the Trails

P

ick a mild day in spring, summer or fall – and in some cases, winter – and you’ll realize how much St. Charles County residents appreciate their outstanding trail and greenway system. You’ll see many bikers, runners and walkers as they connect with paths and roads within the county and neighboring areas. Here is a look at some of the primary path and greenway networks:

GREAT RIVERS GREENWAY

Great Rivers Greenway, a public agency connecting the St. Louis region with greenways, was created about 18 years ago after voters decided to create a sales tax to leave a legacy for future generations by investing in and connecting rivers and parks. Great Rivers Greenway collaborates with partners and communities to build, care for and bring to life a network of greenways, creating healthy habitats and watersheds along the way. The organization serves 2 million residents throughout a 1,200 square mile district of St. Louis City, St. Louis County and St. Charles County. The most notable recent trail improvement was the opening of two new pedestrian bridges in St. Charles County in April 2018. The bridges are part of the recent expansion of the Centennial Greenway, which provides a new connection to parks, schools, businesses and neighborhoods for thousands of residents on both sides of these busy highways. The project extends the existing 2.2-mile Centennial Greenway north, crossing both highways 364 and 94 via two pedestrian bridges where it connects to Old Highway 94 near Muegge Road. In addition to the paved trail and bridges, the greenway also has a scenic overlook landscaped with native plants and seating for people to stop and rest. This section of the Centennial Greenway extends from the Katy Trail to the St. Charles County Heritage Museum. The new bridges spur off the greenway near the Heritage Museum. For more details: https://greatriversgreenway.org/greenway/centennial-greenway-katytrail-heritage-museum/

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. Other outdoors attractions include hiking, picnicking, birdwatching areas, a shooting range, an archery range and prairie restoration spots.

KATY TRAIL STATE PARK

Another popular spot is the Katy Trail, a 240-mile recreation rail trail that runs from Machens – a former town in St. Charles County – to Clinton, about 75 miles southeast of Kansas City. Here, outdoor enthusiasts can bike, run or hike along river bluffs and wooded areas.

CITY AND COUNTY PARKS AND GREENWAYS

One of the most popular natural areas in St. Charles County is the Dardenne Greenway, which winds along Dardenne Creek and links hundreds of acres of parks and many neighborhoods. The greenway has a paved trail that provides access to athletic fields, a dog park, St. Charles Community College and many other areas. The south end of the Greenway is at Legacy Park in Cottleville and the north end is near Mexico Road in St. Peters. There are many trails to check out within the St. Charles County Parks System, including 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 parks, in addition to the paved 5.45-mile hike and bike Boschert Greenway (https://greatriversgreenway.org/greenway/boschertgreenway/). Also, there are three existing segments of the Centennial Greenway: ◆ The easternmost section, Centennial Greenway: Forest Park to Washington University to Vernon, is one 1.5 miles, paved. ◆ Further west, Centennial Greenway: Shaw Park to Olive travels along I-170, linking four communities; Clayton, Ladue, University City and Olivette. The intersection where the greenway crosses Delmar can be very confusing for trail users to navigate, but organizers are working to improve it. ◆ In St. Charles County, Centennial Greenway: Katy Trail to Heritage Museum is a 2.3-mile segment (paved) that provides a vital link between the Katy Trail and St. Charles Heritage Museum Park to the west. It also connects to St. Louis County’s 4.5-mile paved Creve Coeur Connector trail extending from Creve Coeur Park. GSTCCC.COM

This open-air plaza includes a farmers’ market, summer music and movie series, street performances and concerts.

HISTORIC MAIN STREET ST. CHARLES

For a unique shopping trip, head to St. Charles’ 14-block Main Street in one of Missouri’s largest historic districts. The brick street leads to more than 75 unique shops and 25 restaurants and pubs.

STREETS OF ST. CHARLES

The Streets of St. Charles is slated to be a distinctive 1 million-squarefoot mixed-use community with retail, dining, entertainment, hospitality, residential and offices components in a town square environment. The development is anchored by two hotels – the Drury Plaza Hotel, which opened in fall 2017, and Tru by Hilton, which will be ready by June 2018 – and AMC Theatres. One of the main spots to grab a bite here is Firebirds Wood-Fired Grill. It offers wood-fired steaks, seafood, specialty cocktails and select wines.

HISTORIC FRENCHTOWN DISTRICT

The Historic Frenchtown District is a haven for antique lovers, with a half-dozen unique stores dotting the beautiful landscape of this neighborhood. Shoppers can find authentic furniture, glassware, linens and antiques in a variety of styles. There’s also an eclectic mix of other shops, including bridal boutiques, salons, florists and photographers. Recently, a group led by the Greater St. Charles County Chamber of Commerce began spearheading an effort to bring new life to this district.

DINING HIGHLIGHTS

New restaurants open continually in St. Charles County, while traditional establishments continue to draw in loyal customers. The Shack in O’Fallon is an example of a new, fun concept for a restaurant. It features a lively décor, witty sayings and illustrations throughout the building and humorous names for some of the dishes. Local favorite Syberg’s, serving some of the region’s best wings, pizza, shark bites and drinks, opened their seventh location in the region in St. Peters. Llywelyns Pub’s staff is dedicated to providing a warm and inviting gathering place for the community while serving up a Celtic-inspired menu that includes Irish and Scottish selections. The St. Charles location is in the old National Bank building, and the pub pays homage by offering seating in the old vault. In addition, there’s a large patio overlooking the Missouri River. Llywelyns recently opened a location in St Peters as well. Also in St. Peters is Shamrocks Pub & Grill, which provides “American Food with an Irish Attitude.” The New Town community in St. Charles is home to Pangea, a new restaurant run by chef-owner Jessie Gilroy, who is gaining notice in the St. Louis dining community. If environmental sustainability is important to you, you’ll feel good about supporting Prasino, an eco-friendly restaurant that was named one of the area’s top 10 most-booked restaurants by St. Louis Business Journal. This dining establishment serves hormone- and antibiotic-free meats, sustainable seafood and organic produce and eggs with a farm-totable philosophy. Finally, there’s nothing like homemade donuts, especially at a familyowned shop like Old Town Donuts in Cottleville or Donut King in St. Charles.

Sample Regional Spirits

B

rewers and winemakers in St. Charles County have become a must-taste and see destination for local residents and visitors from around the country. Much of the local winemaking activity is focused in Augusta and Defiance, including establishments that provide scenic views from bluffs that overlook the river. Visiting multiple wineries could be part of a day trip, as Augusta is also near many nearby scenic locations, such as the Katy Trail, Daniel Boone Home and the Lewis & Clark Trail. The wineries include: Quarry Wine Garden in New Melle is a new winery that provides tastes of Missouri and California wines. It serves lunch and dinner and often hosts musical performers on the weekends. Defiance Ridge Vineyards is at the beginning of the Missouri Wine Country corridor near Highway 94. The 42-acre property includes a vineyard, lake and lush garden landscape as well as breathtaking views of the Missouri River Valley. Mount Pleasant Estates, an Augusta winery, grows its grapes locally and is the largest purveyor of Augusta Appellation wine. Guests can enjoy a meal at the Appellation Café with a

view that overlooks the Missouri River Valley. Balducci Vineyards is led by the Balducci family, which has roots in California winemaking and opened in 1987 in Augusta. The award-winning establishment hosts entertainment on weekends and is the site for many special events. The number of microbreweries across the country has exploded and St. Charles County is no different. Here’s a look at several of them: Third Wheel Brewing, the first local brewery in St. Peters, delivers an inviting culture of beer, food and friends. Housed in a 10,000-square-foot facility, the brewery and tasting room provide a wide-open space anchored with a large U-shaped bar and plenty of taps. Trailhead Brewing Company, a full-service brewery in St. Charles, offers a full menu of food designed to complement the beer, but you don’t have to be a beer lover to enjoy a night at Trailhead. Two Plumbers Brewery + Arcade, a small brewery in St. Charles that brews many different styles of beer, is open to 21 and older clientele. It also has more than 40 arcade and pinball games inside the taproom. Exit 6 Pub and Brewery takes its craft beers

seriously. The Cottleville establishment offers 70 craft beers, 23 beers on tap and five made on premises, but no “macro” beers. No food is available, but you can bring it in or order in. Good News Brewing Company is the classic story of homebrewers realizing their dreams. Good News in O’Fallon offers a small but delicious beer menu, but is becoming more known for its wood-fired pizzas. Missouri Beer Company is a production brewery and tap room located at the site of the original O’Fallon Brewing Company. Friendship Brewing Company offers at least 25 rotating taps made up of both house beers as well as local, regional, national and international guest taps. It has become a staple of Wentzville. The William K Busch Brewing Company recently unveiled plans for a new brewery and distillery in St. Charles County. Billy Busch whose ancestral legacy includes founders of Anheuser-Busch Brewery, is president & CEO. Construction is expected to be complete in 2020. Local distilleries have also established themselves in the county, including St. Louis Distillery (known for Cardinal Sin Vodka) in St. Charles and Distillery of Defiance, famous for its Judgment Tree Vodka.

CULTURE St. Louis Art Museum www.slam.org Founded in 1879, the St. Louis Art Museum is one of the principal U.S. art museums, visited by a half million people annually. The Art Museum collects, presents, interprets, and conserves artwork; educates and elevates the human spirit; and preserves a legacy of artistic achievement. Admission is free.

Located in Forest Park, the building is home to a variety of exhibits, programs, and events for visitors of all ages and interests. Admission is free. PROFESSIONAL SPORTS Professional sports teams in St. Louis give fans plenty to cheer about. The St. Louis Cardinals are 11-time World Series winners and perennial postseason contenders, making them one of the most successful franchises in Major League Baseball history. Since entering the National Hockey League as expansion team in 1967, the St. Louis Blues have employed some of the greatest players in ice hockey history. Home games are played at the recently renovated Enterprise Center. NEIGHBORHOODS Just short drives away are many nifty neighborhoods. Famous for its authentic Italian dining is the charming community known as The Hill (www.thehillstl.com). Delmar Loop

is an entertainment and shopping district packed with bars, eclectic restaurants, live music venues, vintage clothing boutiques and a Hollywood-inspired walk of fame featuring St. Louis celebrities (www.visittheloop.com). The Loop features the Loop Trolley (www. looptrolley.com), a 2.2-mile fixed-route electric trolley connecting one of America’s Great Streets to the world-renowned Forest Park. As “the best urban eclectic,” Central West End (www.cwescene.com) aficionados say it holds the area’s finest restaurants, bistros, bars, pubs, shopping and entertainment. Others head to The Grove (www.thegrovestl.com), another vibrant and diverse business and entertainment district.
