A vital component of the Regional Plan for Sustainable Development, the HUD Grant funded project in the St. Lousi region, is the focus on sub-regional analysis.
By examining closely the housing, transportation, environmental and economic needs of selected Community Planning Areas (CPAs), we hope to draw lessons and to highlight best practices that can be applied in all the communities of the St. Louis metropolitan region. Over the course of the planning process, a total of four public meetings are being held in each CPA. The first round of meetings were completed in May.
The second round of meetings will be conducted beginning June 27 and ending in August. At these meetings, the St. Louis Regional Sustainable Communities planning team will share a summary of citizen input provided during the first round of meetings and gather more detailed information on the priorities and concerns of residents, business owners and community leaders. Whether you attended the first round meetings or not, plan on getting involved in the regional planning process this summer. The scheduled meeting locations and dates are:
• Ferguson and Environs – June 27
• Mid-Metro 5 – July 17
• Northeast County – July 11
• Riverbend – July 24
• Wentzville, Lake St. Louis, July 31
• Tri-City – August 9
• Lemay – August 22
• Belleville-Swansea – August 13
• Pevely-Herculaneum-Festus-Crystal City – August 28
• East Riverfront – TBD
