North St. Louis group petitions to keep federal agency away

A group of north St. Louis residents will ask the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency not to move its western headquarters to their neighborhood.

The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, or NGIS, a federal agency that handles mapping and intelligence support for the U.S. military, is looking to move from its current facility in south St. Louis, and it’s considering four locations in the St. Louis area.

Approximately 50 residences and places of business would be displaced if the agency selects the north St. Louis location.

The city wants to keep the agency location within St. Louis because the NGIA employs over 3,000 people.
