Bylaws Amended to Match City’s Boundaries

The vote to amend the DNA Bylaws on Monday, July 13 passed with 38 voting “YES” and 1 voting “NO”.

Therefore, DNA’s new boundaries are as follows:

Mississippi River to the east, Chouteau Avenue on the south, Jefferson Avenue on the west, and Cole Street on the north.

DNA’s boundaries now match the boundaries the City of St. Louis uses to define Downtown and Downtown West.

  • Placing flyers (meeting notices, etc.) in public areas when requested, such as elevators and common rooms
  • Distributing information via email lists of building residents, if approved by building mangers or homeowner associations
