South County Life
The South County region represents the interests of nearly 100,000 residents who live in a 44-square mile area in southern St. Louis County (just south of the St. Louis metropolitan region). Among the top 20 metropolitan areas in the United States.
Communities in the South County region (Oakville, Mehlville and Concord) have strong economic and social ties to the Gateway City. However, each is proud of its own independent heritage.
Of the three cities, Oakville is the largest, with a population of approximately 35,000 (according to the 2000 census) in an area of about 16-square miles. Mehlville is the second largest city, with just under 30,000 residents (according to the 2000 census) in an area of approximately 7.5-square miles. Approximately 17,000 people make their homes in Concord, which has a land area of approximately 7-square miles.
