From the Office of Mayor Lyda Krewson:
Mayor Lyda Krewson and Otis Williams, Executive Director of the St. Louis Development Corporation, led the City’s delegation and provided updates on the site’s preparation to a delegation of national security officials, including Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence Kari Bingen, and NGA Director Robert Cardillo.
"We wanted to show them all the work we’ve done at the site of the Next NGA West headquarters and to share with them our plans to be able to transfer to them the land in the coming months, as we promised. We also wanted to talk with them about the work we are doing to increase development in the surrounding community and to prepare NGA's future workforce through the establishment of St. Louis as the center for geospatial and location intelligence."
