Resolution Number 138 | Session 2021-2022

The Appropriation of the Homer G. Phillips Name


NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that this Honorable Board of Aldermen of the City of St. Louis finds that while the developer proposal for a new medical facility in North St. Louis is admirable, the name Homer G. Phillips Hospital is an asset that is best kept in the Ville Neighborhood; that this neighborhood cultural iconic name should not be Inappropriately, Culturally, Appropriated by anyone; and that we suggest the developer find a name that is more suited for the neighborhood for which the medical facility is proposed, as there are many leaders from that community who have substantially contributed to the community and to which naming a new medical facility after them would be a wonderful tribute.
