Share Your Feedback on Chouteau Greenway Project and Process at Feedback & Fun Fests

Community input will help to guide Framework Plan to be released in Fall 2019

Area residents are invited to engage in the making of Chouteau Greenway at one of four Feedback & Fun Fests happening throughout the City of St. Louis in July. Beginning July 9, residents are encouraged to share their ideas and reactions about the project and process to date. This feedback will help guide and shape the project’s Framework Plan slated to be released in Fall 2019. Residents will also have the opportunity to share feedback online.

 

Each Feedback & Fun Fest will have free activities, music and food to celebrate the progress to date and showcase how a greenway can be a place for community gatherings. All ages and abilities are welcome. The four events will be hosted as follows:

  • Tuesday July 9; 5-7:30 pm- Piper Palm House at Tower Grove Park (4271 Northeast Drive, St. Louis, MO 63110)
  • Saturday July 13; 9am to noon- Herbert Hoover Boys and Girls Club (2901 N. Grand Ave., St. Louis, MO 63110)
  • Thursday July 18; 3pm-8pm – Cortex/Venture Café (4240 Duncan Ave #200, St. Louis, MO 63110)
  • Sunday July 21; 1pm-4pm – Kaufmann Park in downtown St. Louis (corner of Tucker and Pine 63103)

The Chouteau Greenway aims to connect Forest Park to the Gateway Arch and Fairground Park to Tower Grove Park through a series of pathways spanning up to 20 neighborhoods in the City of St. Louis, connecting existing destinations and creating new spaces along the way. Following initial community engagement in 2017, and an international design competition launched in 2018, the project incorporates the feedback of thousands of people across the region and the expertise and insights of more than 125 St. Louis City Residents and Civic Leaders. This deliberate planning process aims to ensure the mission, vision, key principles and intended outcomes for the Chouteau Greenway reflect the voices of the entire community. It also centers diversity, inclusion and equity as cornerstones for the project now and as the greenway evolves over time.

“This project and process are unlike anything we’ve done before and we are very grateful to everyone who has been involved so far,” said Susan Trautman, CEO of Great Rivers Greenway. “This greenway will not only connect people to our city’s most treasured places and to each other, but it will create inspiring experiences and equitable opportunities for growth.”

The interactive experiences at the Feedback & Fun Fests and online are a mix of sharing information and gathering input to ensure the Framework Plan is on track and reflects the goals of the public-private partnership. Anticipated to be completed later this fall, it will serve as a platform for the project before any schematic designs for specific segments begin. It will address design concepts including art, amenities, ecology and more; route options and criteria for selection; economic development opportunities; governance models; and an equity plan.

Feedback & Fun Fest attendees will learn what types of criteria are being studied to evaluate where the greenway might go, what an art strategy may entail and possible models of governance for a project of this scale. Attendees will be asked to share feedback on what it means to be a St. Louisan, to rank which equity strategies are important for their neighborhood, where people would like different types of art experiences, and elect how they want to be involved in the future. Participants should expect to spend about 20 minutes on the engagement activities.

“For the past two years, we’ve been building engagement into every step of the process; this is one opportunity among many to share your ideas,” said Shaughnessy H. Daniels, Civic Engagement Manager for Great Rivers Greenway. “We’re also working to engage the 20 City neighborhoods, agencies, business leaders, churches, elected officials and other institutions to collaborate as the project evolves.”

For any accommodation needs, please contact Great Rivers Greenway at 314-436-7009. Find out more about this project at www.ChouteauGreenway.org.

Area Residents Invited to Chouteau Greenway Community Update Event on Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2019

Open house-style program will take place at Local 36 Sheet Metal Workers Union Hall from 4-8 p.m., featuring presentations, an expo with St. Louis area organizations and an invitation for feedback

You are invited to learn the latest details about the Chouteau Greenway Project at a Community Update event on Tuesday, Feb. 5. The open house-style event will be held at the Local 36 Sheet Metal Workers Union Hall, located at 2319 Chouteau Ave, St. Louis, MO 63103. Area residents are encouraged to stop by anytime between 4 and 8 p.m. to learn more about the Chouteau Greenway planning process, project area and the community members who make up the Steering Committee, Working Groups and Artists of Color Council. You can also provide feedback on some of the plans and ideas shared to date.

Duplicate, 20-minute presentations will be held at 4:30, 5:30, 6:30 and 7:30 p.m., and representatives from Great Rivers Greenway will be available between all presentations to answer questions. There will also be display boards with information about the project’s timeline and planning process as led by Great Rivers Greenway and the Stoss Team, which was selected through the project’s design competition.  Attendees can learn more about the proposed project area at an on-site expo, featuring organizations from across the city, such as Venture Café St. Louis, National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, Saint Louis Zoo, Grand Center Inc, Paraquad, Kingsway Development and many more. These partners will be sharing and gathering information at their booths.

Those in attendance will be able to contribute to an interactive mapping activity to mark the places where they live, work, learn, play and gather within the project area. An online, interactive version of the map will also be available following the open house at ChouteauGreenway.org. This community feedback will not only help project planners “connect the dots” in shaping their planning efforts but will also help everyone get to know the project footprint and their neighbors’ stories and experiences.

“Building on the last year of engagement, we want to hear from the experts of this project area – the people who live, work and play there – to make sure we’re capturing everything,” said Shaughnessy H. Daniels, Community Engagement Manager for Great Rivers Greenway. “This event and online map are also the first of many opportunities for people who may be less familiar with the project area to explore it as it is now, so everyone can start to envision the possibilities together.”

Since the final phase of the International Design Competition for the Chouteau Greenway concluded in November 2018, the agency has been recruiting community members for the Working Groups and Steering Committees, ensuring representation from the 19 city neighborhoods that lie within the project area. The next step will be to create an overall framework plan, covering the four topics of alignments, look and feel of the greenway, economic growth and equity, before beginning design and engineering on specific segments. When the framework is complete in Summer 2019, pieces of geography will be studied in projects called “labs” to test the framework and further design specific greenway segments.

People who are unable to attend are encouraged to view the presentation and share feedback online at www.ChouteauGreenway.org.

Final Competition Report:


CHOUTEAU GREENWAY DESIGN COMPETITION COMPLETE; PROJECT PLANNING BEGINS WITH COMMUNITY INPUT

St. Louis, MO – Nov. 19, 2018 – Great Rivers Greenway and partners have completed the final phase of the International Design Competition for Chouteau Greenway, a 1-year public-private partnership to imagine a greenway focused on connectivity, economic opportunity, equity and sustainability in the City of St. Louis. A report published today details additions and refinements to the original conceptual plan submitted by the Stoss Landscape Urbanism team in April. The next phase of planning includes multiple engagement opportunities including recruiting additional neighborhood representation, input on the engagement plan itself and a community event in February.

The report shares a new mission/vision statement, “Chouteau Greenway will transform St. Louis by connecting people and our City’s most treasured places, creating inspiring experiences and equitable opportunities for growth”. More than just a free, accessible trail where people can exercise, commute or explore, the project’s goals include offering an exceptional experience to residents and tourists alike. The greenway aims to create dynamic, active spaces and serve as a regional gathering place that encourages collaboration and boosts civic pride.

Since being selected by the competition jury in May, the Stoss team, comprised of 13 firms or individuals from St. Louis as well as other cities, has been working with Great Rivers Greenway, partners and stakeholders to incorporate the feedback gathered during the competition into their concept. The next step is to create an overall framework plan, before beginning design and engineering on specific segments.

“This project is full of exciting opportunities and interesting challenges that will be a catalyst for new ideas; our team is looking forward to working with St. Louisans to find innovative solutions,” said Chris Reed, FASLA and Founding Director at Stoss Landscape Urbanism. “In our first six months, we will focus on studying routes, designing the look and feel of the greenway and proposing economic and equity plans for the project.”

When the framework is complete in Summer 2019, particular pieces of geography will be studied in projects called “labs” to test the framework and further design specific greenway segments. The map below show the routes to be studied throughout the area that stretches from Forest Park to Gateway Arch National Park and Tower Grove to Fairground Parks through 19 city neighborhoods.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In addition to Great Rivers Greenway and the Stoss team, the project will be led by a Steering Committee and Working Groups made up of residents, technical experts, City representatives and community leaders. In addition to the Community Advisory Committee formed last fall, Great Rivers Greenway now seeks six additional residents to ensure that each neighborhood in the areas to be studied is represented. Residents of Carr Square, Covenant Blu-Grand Center, Greater Ville, Jeff VanderLou, St. Louis Place and Tiffany neighborhoods are invited to sign up. Additionally, an Artists of Color Council was formed in July through an open call, hired to advise the local art and engagement components of the project.

“Chouteau Greenway is all about bringing people together to think differently about St. Louis,” said Susan Trautman, CEO of Great Rivers Greenway. “This process will have many voices working together to ultimately connect our city, creating opportunities for economic growth in an equitable way.”

The Stoss team will be collaborating with local consultant Vector Communications for Great Rivers Greenway’s civic engagement on the project. Anyone who lives, works, plays, learns or visits the area of the future Chouteau Greenway is invited to engage with the project in multiple ways including subscribing for email or text updates and attending a series of community events, the first of which is set for Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2019.

“We will continue to connect with residents, businesses, students, community groups, property owners and other stakeholders,” said Shaughnessy H. Daniels, Community Engagement Manager for Great Rivers Greenway. “Please help us fill in our plan by sharing the groups, organizations or people we should know about – call us, stop by our office or find the form online.”

Details and sign-ups for all of those efforts, plus the end of the competition report, are available at www.ChouteauGreenway.org or by calling 314-436-7009.

About Great Rivers Greenway:

Great Rivers Greenway is the public agency connecting the St. Louis region with greenways, with 125 miles built so far. St. Louisans decided to leave a legacy for future generations by investing in and connecting together some of our region’s best assets – rivers, parks and communities. A vote of the people in the year 2000 created a sales tax that allows us, with lots of partner and citizen input, to build, care for and bring to life the network of greenways, creating healthy habitats and watersheds along the way. Greenways help residents and visitors explore and enjoy the region and live life outside. For more information, visit www.GreatRiversGreenway.org.

About the Chouteau Greenway Artists of Color Council:

The Artists of Color Council is comprised of eight visual, literary and performing artists. Together, they have been hired to provide guidance on the Chouteau Greenway project. Pacia Anderson, Syrhea Conaway, Miles Dela Cruz, Tre’von Griffith, Chinyere E. Oteh, Sahara Sista S.O.L.S., Jerry Stewart and Diana Zeng were selected to provide guidance to Great Rivers Greenway and the Stoss team to design, promote and implement opportunities for local artists of color as part of the Chouteau Greenway, engaging the community along the way and ensuring that the art is representative and welcoming to the communities the Chouteau Greenway serves. Many thanks to the Whitaker Foundation for their support of the Artists of Color Council. More information at www.GreatRiversGreenway.org/AOCC.

What’s next for the Chouteau Greenway?

In May 2018, the Chouteau Greenway Design Competition jury selected the STOSS Landscape Urbanism team, comprised of six local and six national entities. (We’re working on some videos to highlight this talented team!) While their original concept was helpful to showcase their approach and thinking, the jury selected the team, not the plan. This concept will change as the planning process moves forward. Great Rivers Greenway and partners, along with the Stoss team, are working on the Chouteau Greenway in two ways right now:

1) The competition refinement period is a time for the chosen design team to digest all of the great feedback given by partners, technical advisors, community members and the jury, working with partners to evolve their original concept.

2) The partners are also building a framework for how to move the project into implementation. This planning process will include community and stakeholder engagement and diversity, equity and inclusion considerations in categories such as:

  • Alignment and route studies
  • Sustainability and ecology plans
  • Design criteria and signature projects
  • Constructability reviews including permitting, utilities
  • Economic opportunity analysis and planning including development, workforce, affordable housing
  • Activation, programming and event strategies
  • Funding and governance options
  • Operations and maintenance models

As we have said throughout this process, we recognize the many challenges facing the St. Louis region. We must address those issues through this project and our process. We do not have all the answers about how that will happen and we look forward to additional partnerships and expertise to guide this work. It’s imperative that the region listens to a wide variety of voices and collaborates so Chouteau Greenway will have a positive, lasting impact and create common ground that communities embrace.

Thank you for your guidance thus far and we look forward to engaging in further conversations as the project evolves! Click here for all the details on the design competition, master plan and more.

 

STOSS LANDSCAPE URBANISM TEAM SELECTED BY CHOUTEAU GREENWAY DESIGN COMPETITION JURY

STOSS Landscape Urbanism Team Selected By Chouteau Greenway Design Competition Jury

 

 

 

 

 

St. Louis – May 2, 2018 –The Chouteau Greenway Design Competition partners and jury have selected the team led by Stoss Landscape Urbanism to refine their conceptual plans for a new greenway to connect Forest Park and the Gateway Arch.

Four teams were chosen in January to compete and were given 90 days to develop conceptual plans for the Chouteau Greenway. Teams submitted their plans in early April for public feedback and presented their ideas to the jury and community last week.

“The teams’ responses to the design and community goals indicate their understanding of the complexity and transformative nature of the project to St. Louis,” said Don Stastny, Competition Manager. “Their receptivity to the community concerns and interests was apparent and will be important in the next steps of design refinement.”

In the deliberations that followed, the Stoss Team was unanimously chosen as the team to participate in the next stage of the competition. The jury provided comments about each team, suggestions for refinement of the chosen team’s concept and overall recommendations; the full jury report is available online.

“The team has gusto – not just talent, but also passion for the project,” said the jury. “Their successful response to the goals is due to their strong team, clear framework, and flexibility to work with the project partners, the community and also institutions. The outcomes in their presentation are not solutions but provide a starting point for dialog and design.”

The team includes Stoss Landscape Urbanism, Urban Planning for the American City, ALTA, Marlon Blackwell Architects, Damon Davis, De Nichols, Mallory Nezam, Amanda Williams, David Mason and Associates, Lochmueller, Diversity Awareness Partnership and HR&A. Through a series of workshops, the Stoss team will review the community input gathered thus far and work with project partners to further refine their conceptual plans. This phase is expected to take several months and will provide the opportunity to develop specific greenway corridors, connections, and concepts. Once the overall plan is in place, projects will undergo further community engagement, feasibility and alignment studies, design work and engineering before beginning construction.

“Thank you to the partners, stakeholders and community members for bringing fresh ideas and momentum to this project,” said Susan Trautman, Chief Executive Officer of Great Rivers Greenway. “The work to hone the concept and design a framework for equitable implementation is just beginning; we cannot wait to work with the Stoss team and our region to create a dynamic, world-class greenway that can transform our city and create common ground. This effort is another great example of how both the public and private sectors can work together to enhance the quality of life for all St. Louisans.”

Great Rivers Greenway is joined by ten partners in a public-private partnership to lead the transformation of the city of St. Louis through an international design competition for a greenway that connects Washington University and Forest Park through the city to downtown and the Gateway Arch and the river. The greenway will feature an east-west corridor with connections north and south to knit together the city’s vibrant neighborhoods, parks, business and cultural districts, employment centers, transit and dozens of cultural and educational institutions.

“I expect that over the next decade, we will see substantial private investment in and along the Chouteau Greenway,” said project partner Steve Smith of the Lawrence Group, which is building the City Foundry STL project. “It is already happening. Several of our early national tenant commitments specifically wanted to locate along the greenway. Both the process and the finished product create opportunities for jobs and economic vitality.”

More information about the process, stakeholders, jury, design teams and concepts are available at www.ChouteauGreenway.org.

Chouteau Greenway Concepts Have Arrived!

Residents of the Region Invited to Give Feedback As Part Of Chouteau Greenway Design Competition

Four Concepts Will Be Displayed Online and Around the City April 6-22


Quick Links: View All Four Concepts  |  Online Survey  |  Exhibits & Events  |  Press Kit


St. Louis – April 6, 2018 – Residents of the St. Louis region 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 or in person at exhibits around town beginning Friday, April 6, and will be asked to provide input through a survey before April 22.

Great Rivers Greenway is joined by ten 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. Residents can stop by at any point. Brief remarks by Mayor Krewson, competition manager Don Stastny and Great Rivers Greenway CEO Susan Trautman at 5:00 p.m., and brief remarks by Trautman, Stastny and project partners at 6:00 p.m. 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, Herbert Hoover Boys and Girls Club, 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, 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 full schedule and details for all of these events are available at www.ChouteauGreenway.org.

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. The jury will evaluate the concepts how they address the Design and Community Goals based upon 1) Deliverables from the Team: Exhibit boards, full design report, presentation to the jury; 2) Advisory Reports: Responses from Community Advisory Committee, Technical Advisory Group and Design Oversight Committee (the partners); and 3) Community Input: Surveys gathered April 6-22.

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.”
