Dedicated August 13, 1997

The St. Louis Regional Convention and Sports Complex Authority dedicates Robert J. Baer Plaza in honor of the Authority's first Chairman. The Plaza is a tribute to Mr. Baer's vision, commitment, and extraordinary leadership in directing the eastward Convention Center expansion, including the domed stadium. Over a six-year period, the project encompassed financing, design, property acquisition, and construction. Under Mr. Baer's stewardship, the $300 million expansion was brought from concept to reality ahead of schedule and within budget. Preservation of land for this park reflect Mr. Baer's recognition of the need for "green space" as an attractive front yard for the Stadium/Convention Center. The Plaza's dedication also acknowledges Mr. Baer's numerous other contributions as a civic leader and his effectiveness, over many years, in enhancing the quality of life for the citizens of the metropolitan St. Louis area.
