The following post is from: Forest Park Southeast – Park Central Development

Great Rivers Greenway (GRG) makes the St. Louis region a more vibrant place to live, work and play by developing a network of greenways to connect people to their rivers, parks and communities.  “Great Rivers Greenway is leading a major public-private partnership to establish the conceptual plan for the Chouteau Greenway, which will connect Washington University & Forest Park to the Washington University Medical Center & BJC, the Cortex Innovation Community, the Foundry and Armory projects, Grand Center Arts District, Saint Louis University, Harris-Stowe State University, Downtown & the Gateway Arch, with spurs north and south and many other destinations along the way, such as area neighborhoods, employment centers, parks, transit, and dozens of cultural and educational institutions. The international design competition process, going on now, will create a conceptual design for the Chouteau Greenway.”

As part of this project, they are looking for community input.  There will be an informational session Thursday, November 30th at 5:30 p.m. at the Schlafly Public Library (225 North Euclid).  GRG are also conducting an online survey  here where residents, businesses, and workers can give input on what they would like to see happen.
