Help us create a welcoming Chouteau Greenway!
Great Rivers Greenway is looking for 40 citizens from throughout the St. Louis region to serve on our Citizen Advisory Committee (CAC) for Chouteau Greenway, which will connect Washington University & Forest Park to Downtown & the Gateway Arch with spurs to the north and south. We are leading a major public-private partnership to establish the conceptual plan for this greenway through a design competition. To make it a success, we need a CAC.
As a CAC member, you will give input on the past and current conditions of the area and desired future connections and destinations. The goal is for the Chouteau Greenway to be an asset that connects, delights and serves all people in their everyday lives thus creating a dynamic, unique and memorable St. Louis greenway experience. Some of the CAC tasks will include:
- Reviewing the goals and principles of the design competition;
- Identifying the community’s assets, stories, character, history, destinations and desire connections;
- Revealing any equity concerns or unintended consequences of this project and brainstorming solutions;
- Discussing programs that would contribute to an overall unique and memorable experience; and
- Envisioning a greenway that is inclusive and accessible to all residents
Our meetings will be monthly from September 2017 through April 2018 and will last about one to two hours. Transportation and childcare support are available, and food will be provided at each meeting. Meeting times and days will be set with the selected CAC members.
If you are interested in serving on the Chouteau Greenway, please fill out the application form below by Friday, September 8. Also feel free to encourage your neighbors, friends and/or co-workers in the City of St. Louis, St. Louis County and St. Charles County to apply. We will select candidates who represent our region in terms of race, ethnicity, gender, age, and geography of where you live, work or learn. Thanks!
