Connecting St. Louis

Trailnet is moving St. Louis forward as a place where everyone can travel easily by foot or by bicycle. We are thrilled to share The Connecting St. Louis Master Plan as a bold vision to transform the City of St. Louis by connecting neighborhoods, cultural districts, and business centers. This plan was made through the dedication and partnerships from civic and community partners.

We are excited to share this current work and can’t wait to share more soon. Connecting St. Louis is the recipient of the 2018 APA Missouri Chapter’s Public Outreach Award.

From November 2016 to November 2018, Trailnet dove into an extensive planning process to review past, current, and future projects with over 50 partners and over 4,000 community respondents. The planning process comprised of five committees (Design and Placemaking, Destinations and Routes, Funding and Governance, Land Use, and Public Input), six community champions, and two community engagement opportunities. Click here to view the planning process.
