Welcome To Progress 64 West

About Progress 64 West

Progress 64 West is a not-for-profit civic organization established to promote growth in the greater St. Louis region, particularly along the I-64 corridor from I-270 westward to I-70, including both St. Louis and St. Charles Counties. 

In order to grow and thrive, every community needs a healthy business community. When responsible corporate partners locate within a community, residents realize not only an increase in job opportunities, but lower taxes, a higher quality education system, along with many other amenities that would not be possible without the added tax dollars that are returned to our communities.

Due to the hard work of citizens, businesses and civic leaders the I-64 Corridor has become the ideal and viable area to shop, dine, work, play, and stay. Together they have successfully convinced high tech firms, retail establishments, restaurants, and other types of commerce to establish their businesses in our communities.  In addition, they play a key role in getting the infrastructure that are needed to support growth.

Founded in 1987, Progress 64 West has not-for-profit and tax exempt status under Section 501(c)4 of the United States Internal Revenue Code.
