ONSL’s Phil Valko Honored as One of “30 Under 30”

Congratulations to ONSL resident and ONSLRG Board Treasurer Phil Valko for his selection as one of the St. Louis Business Journal’s “30 Under 30” for 2007. The annual list honors St. Louisans under the age of 30 who are making a mark on our region through their careers or community involvement. The selection committee took note of Phil’s work as active living program manager at Trailnet, his founding of The Urban Studio, and his service on the Board at ONSLRG. Take a look at the full profile of Phil in this week’s issue of the St. Louis Business Journal.

Among the comments that made their way into print were Phil’s observations on why he has chosen to live in ONSL:

“I am rehabbing a beautiful 145-year-old stack of sticks and bricks in Old North St. Louis. Old North has an incredible sense of community; it’s diverse, full of creativity, and it is in the process of a remarkable, resident-driven revitalization. Plus, I can hop on my bike and be in downtown in 10 minutes, on the Riverfront Trail in five minutes or at the North City Farmers’ Market in two minutes.”

The full story (including details about the other “30 Under 30” honorees) can be found in the print edition of the St. Louis Business Journal, and online for subscribers.
On most Saturdays Phil can be found at the North City Farmers’ Market, coordinating activities of The Urban Studio or engrossed in a game of chess.
