A Mayor Runs Through It

With the determination of a Missouri mule, Mayor Mike Swoboda drags a $40 million development into the heart of Kirkwood


Outside, the night is cool. Everyone has gone home. Kirkwood pulls its sidewalks in early on a weeknight. The empty parking lot is in shadow. A few acres of asphalt isn't much on a dark night. Right now it's like one of those obscure fields where a battle was fought years ago, signifying what? Progress? Disaster? The place where the character of Kirkwood changed forever?

"Isn't this neat? Isn't this exciting?"
