Next Tuesday, July 23, the public is invited to participate in regional planning efforts focusing on economic development around public transit.A final meeting is scheduled as part of the regional Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) study led by the East-West Gateway Council of Governments and the St. Louis Development Corporation. The meeting will be held from 6-8 p.m. at the New Cote Brilliante Church of God at 6195 Washington Boulevard in St. Louis.
Participants can view the draft development plan for the Delmar Loop MetroLink Station and the Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Station. The planning team will present the final draft plan and next steps. Refreshments will be served.
The Bi-State Development Agency/Metro is one of 11 agencies partnering in the project. The purpose of the federally-funded TOD study is to create more places to live, work, shop, and play near light rail stations.
The overall effort is geared toward creating a vision and a road map for stimulating transit-oriented development in the St. Louis region.
