The National Geospatial Intelligence Agency (NGA), currently located in South Saint Louis City, is planning to move to a new location. Saint Louis political leaders, including Mayor Francis Slay, want to keep the agency within the city limits. However, a site in Saint Clair County, Illinois, is also attempting to lure the NGA and may be a more attractive option. Meanwhile, Saint Louis may use eminent domain to remove dozens of residents from their homes in a North City neighborhood to clear land for construction of a new NGA headquarters, even though the NGA has yet to make a final decision on its new location. In this video, we hear from some area residents who want to stay in their homes, but are facing uncertainty over where they will be living a few months from now.
