Public Asked to Provide Feedback on Chouteau Greenway Conceptual Designs
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), April 1, 2018 - Residents of the St. Louis region now have the opportunity to provide feedback on the concepts that are being considered to bring the Chouteau Greenway to life.

After reviewing initial submissions from 19 design teams from throughout the world, the Chouteau Greenway Design Competition jury selected four teams in December to each develop conceptual plans. The public will be able to view those concepts either online at www.ChouteauGreenway.org or in person at exhibits around town to provide input through a survey before April 22.

Great Rivers Greenway is joined by seven partners in a public-private partnership to transform the city of St. Louis with a greenway that connects Washington University and Forest Park through the city to downtown and the Gateway Arch. The greenway will feature spurs north and south to connect the city's vibrant neighborhoods, parks, business and cultural districts, employment centers, transit and dozens of cultural and educational institutions. Community members' responses will be collected April 6-22 and will be provided to the competition jury, which will select the winning concept and team at the end of April.

"It is very important to the jury to hear the voices of St. Louisans," said Don Stastny, competition manager. "We hope people will take the opportunity to share how they think the teams responded to the Design and Community Goals, which serve as the foundation of the competition."

As part of the competition, each team developed a set of display boards, highlighting their overall concepts. The concepts will be on display at the Chouteau Greenway Community Kickoff Night on Tuesday, April 10 from 4:30 to 7 p.m. at the Sheldon at 3648 Washington Blvd. in the Grand Center Arts District.

The event is open to all, with free parking, bike valet, refreshments and a cash bar. Boards will be on display at locations throughout the City of St. Louis from April 6 through 22, including the Central and Schlafly branches of the St. Louis Public Library, Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis, the Forest Park Visitor and Education Center, Missouri History Museum, The Luminary, Covo STL, KAMP, Great Rivers Greenway, Venture Café, Herbert Hoover Boys and Girls Club, St. Louis College of Pharmacy and Saint Louis University.

Community members are also invited to see the teams present their plans to the jury Wednesday, April 25. The event at Harris-Stowe State University from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., will be streamed on Great Rivers Greenway's Facebook page.

The four design teams chosen to compete have been working on their concepts since January and have met with technical and community advisers several times throughout the three-month planning process. Once the jury selects the winning concept and team, the chosen team will have two months to refine its design before presenting a final concept in June 2018. The project partners then take on the task of determining how to bring the project to life, addressing funding and governance options for the project's construction, activation and maintenance. From the overall concept plan, specific segments will undergo further engagement, design and engineering before construction can begin.

"We are working with our partners to transform the City of St. Louis and ensure that the Chouteau Greenway creates opportunities for economic and community benefits, especially within the context of our region's racial inequities," said Susan Trautman, Chief Executive Officer of Great Rivers Greenway. "Let's create a dynamic, world-class and uniquely St. Louis experience that engages our community, addresses equity and creates common ground."
