St. Louis, MO (KTRS) St. Louis City leaders continue to gather public feedback in the development of the new NGA site.
Another public meeting was held Monday night through the Project Connect Action Plan,which aims to gather public feedback on what the community would like to see developed around the new NGA western headquarters. Matt Hernandez, a resident of old North St. Louis, was among hundreds who attended to share his concerns.
“I’m very interested in how urban development is going to be part of this, accessible to people of all income levels, new services for the neighborhood that are really lacking now, infrastructure improvements, just in general how is it going to life quality of life for all of the residents in the neighborhoods affected.” said Hernandez.
St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay, says public input is critical to this process. “We’re going to be doing something we’ve never done before, certainly nothing this large that will have an impact the community.”
“We want to make sure that the community is connected to this project, that this isn’t just an island.” Slay added.
The community was also informed of the next steps. This includes the completion of a storm water model, a traffic model, and a market study.
The next large NGA community meeting is planned for January.
