Paul Toenjes, an Associate and Studio Manager with SWT Design, will be presenting Building Complete Communities by Strengthening Connections.
Our nation’s aging infrastructure is in a precarious state, with many communities still facing limited access to mobility and alternative modes of transportation. Therefore, in many ways, the question becomes, “What role does transportation play in building not just complete streets, but complete communities?”
Streets that were once a place where children played kick-the-can and neighbors stopped for conversation are now pipelines to outer suburbs. This session will discuss the role that transit/transportation has in strengthening connectivity between people and their communities.
The St. Louis region has a number of examples where transit/transportation is playing a pivotal role building more complete communities. In Old North St. Louis, less than 1 mile north of downtown, consultants partnered with U.S. EPA to develop an implementable sustainability framework plan for the community that utilizes various connectivity, environmental, and productive land-use strategies to create a renewed sense of place, and put public investment to its best and highest use. In North St. Louis County, a team of consultants developed a Great Streets Master Plan to guide future development of a 5-mile major commercial and residential corridor that bisects several communities. Phase 1 design of this plan is currently underway. Within St. Louis’ major park, Forest Park, consultants have prepared a connectivity study to greatly improve multi-modal transportation access throughout the park, to the surrounding neighborhoods and regionally.
