Tower Grove South is a diverse community on the near south side of St. Louis with a balance of homeowners, renters, and small businesses. The many restaurants in the vibrant South Grand business district add an international flavor to the community. Also within the neighborhood are the growing Morgan Ford and Gravois business districts. Our active neighborhood organizations are constantly planning opportunities for neighbors to come together, celebrate, and learn more about what is happening in our community.

This site is maintained by the Tower Grove South Block Captains Steering Committee.

Short Course On Responding to a Nuisance On Your Block

Given we have many new residents who may not have been to a Block Captains meeting and don't know how to respond when a nuisance appears on their block, here's a recap.

If there's a house on your block that is a chronic nuisance (loud noise, suspected drug dealing, kids out after curfew, people loitering in the front and back, fighting, etc.) call 911 and say the following:

"I am calling about a nuisance property and their address is ______________."
Describe the behavior and people involved. Be prepared to give specifics about Who, What, When and Where.
