The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency announced six potential sites for its new location in the St. Louis area, inciting a border war between Missouri and Illinois over the future site. The six possible locations include: Fenton, Mehlville, North Park, North St. Louis, Weldon Spring and St. Clair County.
The agency employs around 3,000 people and provides satellite mapping, among other services, to the government. Its current location, which is too costly to remodel, is located near the Anheuser-Busch brewery, on the site of the old St. Louis Arsenal.
A decision on a new location will not be finalized until 2016, and the facility will not be constructed until around 2022.
