History

The Skinker DeBaliviere Community Council was established in 1966. Delmar Baptist Church, (now New Cote Brilliante Church of God), Grace Methodist, St. Roch Church, and Washington University, along with neighborhood associations – Rosedale Neighbors and Washington Heights – came together to improve the neighborhood.

The Council assists in the ongoing improvement of the neighborhood, working with City of St. Louis, neighbors and the Aldermen to keep a finger on the pulse of the neighborhood and to identify, assess, and resolve immediate concerns.  The council continues to serve as a forum where neighbors raise concerns, forge solutions, and address problems.
