Demonstration Projects

East-West Gateway Council of Governments recently launched an initiative to expand the way communities think about streets. Local leaders and citizens are encouraged to think beyond the curb to see how transportation decisions affect the total built environment. Whether your community is at the early stages of assessing a street that needs improvement, or at the point where an adopted vision has yet to materialize as a design, planning assistance is available. St. Louis area communities are encouraged to share their needs, ideas or plans for possible projects.

This initiative provides opportunity for communities to receive planning assistance in designing great streets. After submitting concepts, several communities will receive a half-day, on-site workshop. Following this initial visit, communities may then compete for demonstration projects to be awarded by East-West Gateway to receive customized planning assistance.
