Granite City / Pontoon Beach / Madison / Venice

Port Authority River's Edge

  • The Charles Melvin Price Support Center, a former U.S. Army base, was decommissioned May 1. Now the 852-acre site is being reborn as the $52-million River's Edge office, industrial, commercial and residential development. The Army declared the base excess property in 1998. It is west of Route 3 near Lock and Dam No. 27 on the Chain of Rocks Canal, about 1.5 miles north of the McKinley Bridge. Portions of the site are in Venice, Madison, Granite City and unincorporated Madison County.
  • Some military offices -- Army, Marines, Coast Guard, Army Reserve and others -- are still there. A proposed $18 million dollar meeting and conference center would be used by the Army Reserves two weekends a month and would be a joint-use facility with state-of-the-art classrooms, an auditorium, assembly hall, kitchen facilities and other space. Housing for military families will still be available.
  • The River's Edge Golf Course will open June 1 as a nine-hole, public course. A day-care center with capacity for 50 children is expected to open this summer. An auditorium with seating for 200 and 152 housing units also are part of the plans. Heating and cooling systems will be remodeled in some buildings for office and service center space for businesses.
