(KMOV.com) – The area of College Hill in north St. Louis will be split into two different districts starting Monday.
College Hill will go from being in the fifth district to being split between the fourth and sixth.
Alderman Antonio French told News 4 that majority of people will not notice the change in districts. He says that “what folks care about at the end of the day is level of service. So anything that we can do, whether it’s a change of resources or change of districts, needs to be with that goal of increasing customer service”.
Since the area was redistricted 50 years ago it has seen a change in both crime and population trends.
French will be keeping a close eye on the area to see if there is any change in crime trends and suggests looking at the plan again in the near feature.
