What do St. Louis residents think that the City is doing about lead 
poisoning and housing? Wanting to find out, the Gateway Greens held 13 
focus groups between December 2008 and July 2009 that involved 86 City 
residents.

Each focus group addressed four questions: What do you like about the 
City’s efforts on lead poisoning? How do you think that the City could 
improve its lead programs? What do you like about the City’s efforts on 
housing? How do you think that the City could improve its housing 
programs? The panel will discuss what the focus groups said and 
implications it has for policies of the City of St. Louis.
