EAST ST. LOUIS College Class To Conduct Poll On Riverfront Projects

A class at St. Louis Community College at Forest Park, working with the NAACP, will conduct a poll of East St. Louis residents to learn how they want the riverfront developed.

Besides polling residents, the class will interview up to 25 East St. Louis civic leaders about future development.

Artis Talley of East St. Louis teaches the public relations class.

"It is important for the leadership of our community to be informed" of residents' views, he said. "This opinion poll should give them clear direction."

Talley has been outspoken about riverfront development and has challenged some of East St. Louis' plans.

Johnny Scott, president of the East St. Louis chapter of the NAACP, said that organization got involved because "with all the businesses missing from our town, I believe riverfront development offers the best opportunity to improve the economic health of our community."
