June Luncheon 2020 via Zoom

Topic: The Brickline Greenway

Brickline Greenway is a planned open space, bicycle and pedestrian network in the heart of St. Louis linking Forest Park, Fairground Park, Tower Grove Park and Gateway Arch National Park. Originally envisioned in the late 1990s as an east-west linear park, the concept has evolved to reach far north and south into numerous city neighborhoods. Brickline Greenway will transform St. Louis by connecting the city’s most treasured places—vibrant neighborhoods, parks, business and arts districts, employment centers, transit hubs, and dozens of cultural and educational institutions—to create inspiring experiences and equitable opportunities for growth.

Speakers: 

Neil Eisenberger, Principal - The Lamar Johnson Collaborative

Mark Vogl, AICP - Project Manager, Planning - Great Rivers Greenway

During this session, participants will learn about the planning and design process for Brickline Greenway, specifically these three objectives:

1. How the planned Brickline Greenway multimodal transportation system will connect existing neighborhoods and employment centers with non-vehicular transportation options;

2. How GRG and its consulting team have used innovative and inclusive community engagement to shape the physical and organizational structure of the planned Brickline Greenway; and
