A developer seeking to revamp 1,500 acres on the north side of St. Louis is offering to create an association for the 9,000 residents of the neighborhood to help them voice opinions on topics including layout and public spaces. "It's going to be trickier in any area where you already have existing residents," says Pete Salsich, a law professor at St. Louis University. "You're essentially trying to persuade people to enter into a contract, with regulations on their property. You can't force someone who already owns property to do that."
