County launches ARPA survey, town hall dates to gather feedback

County using surveys, town halls to gather opinions

St. Louis County is seeking feedback from residents about how the county should spend the $193 million it received in American Rescue Plan Act funds. 

The county launched an online survey Feb. 25 and will be hosting a series of in-person town halls to hear residents’ opinions on how the ARPA money should be spent. 

The survey can be found on the county’s website, under the “Community Needs Survey” icon on the homepage. It was developed in coordination with the County Council and will be live through March 25. An online portal about the ARPA spending process will also be available on the county’s website. 

In addition to the survey, the county also announced a series of town halls, including a town hall at the Grant’s View Branch of the St. Louis County Library, 9700 Musick Ave., March 16. 

The schedule for the in-person town halls  is as follows: 

• Thursday, March 10 from 6-8 p.m. at Lewis and Clark Branch, 9909 Lewis and Clark Blvd., 63136.

• Wednesday, March 16 from 6-8 p.m. at Grant’s View Branch, 9700 Musick Ave., 63123.

• Saturday, March 19 from 10 a.m – noon at Indian Trails Branch, 8400 Delport Drive, 63114.

• Wednesday, March 23 from 6-8 p.m. at Thornhill Branch, 12863 Willowyck Drive, 63146. 

The county will also host two virtual town halls: Wednesday, March 9 from 6-8 p.m. and Monday, March 21 from 6-8 p.m.

“Hearing from our residents on what the needs are in their communities is critical especially as we talk about recovering from this pandemic,” County Executive Sam Page said in a press release. “I’m excited to see this new initiative unfold.”
