This panel will discuss how a pilot street design became integrated into the St. Louis street design standards. The project involved multiple stakeholders ranging from community members to elected officials. The panelists will highlight the multiple perspectives, design elements, and strategic planning that influenced the project.

Key Questions:

1.       What is the EPA Collaborative Problem Solving Model and how does it lead to changes in the built environment? 

2.       What role did the community play in Trailnet's project? How was the project significantly shaped by community input? 

3.       What role did local government play in Trailnet's project?  Who were other Key players? (SLACO) 


4.       What long-term impact will the project have on the City of St. Louis? --here is where we can talk about deliberately aiming to change design standards and gaining acceptance of traffic calming tools for future projects including our vision.
