Update from 20th ward Alderman Craig Schmid

“We do not have detailed information yet.  However, we have been advised that the tree stump removal should begin next week, and it looks like — at this point and weather dependent — that they plan to be finished with the entire project before mid October.”

Cherokee Enhancement Project Update

Update from 20th ward Alderman Craig Schmid

Below are the questions and responses to our questions that I received, regarding timing of the project, staging of the project, the Gingko trees, the vault under the sidewalk at 2626-30 Cherokee, and the storage of the decorative posts.

1. When will the project commence, when do we anticipate that it will be completed?
We have not received concurrence from MoDOT on this project. Once we do receive their concurrence it will take approximately five (5) to six (6) weeks to execute the contract and issue a Notice to Proceed (NTP). The term of the contract is 200 work days from the date of the NTP.

2. How will the project be conducted? Will the entire stretch from Jefferson to Nebraska be torn up; will just one block at a time be torn up; will one side of the street (north side or south side) be torn up along the entire stretch from Jefferson to Nebraska; or will one side of one block be torn up at a time?

Cherokee Street Enhancement Project

Posted by Jason Deem on June 17, 2009 | 24 Comments

The Board of Public Service has released engineering plans for the street scape improvements planned for Cherokee between Nebraska and Jefferson.

The plans include new pedestrian lighting, new trees, ADA compliant curb cuts at all intersections, and removal/replacement of the brick pavers between the sidewalk and the street with concrete.

The lighting will be 14′ high double globe fixtures at the intersections and single globe fixtures along the rest of the street.  The fixtures look great in the drawings but one thing that’s unclear is the material.  The plans specify “Cast Iron Light Pole Antique Street Lamps” however the manufacture’s web site which lists this model states “All components and decorative base shall be high-strength ASTM 356.1 Cast Aluminum”.

After months of months of surveying and planning by the Board of Board of Public Service, MoDOT, and the City of St. Louis, preliminary plans for $1.4 million in Cherokee street-scape improvements are about to be made available for public review and input.

The From Aldermen Schmid & Ortmann. . .

Dear Cherokee Community:

There will be a meeting held on Tuesday, December 9, 2008 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Five Star Senior Center located at 2832 Arsenal (at Oregon).  This meeting will be to obtain community input and discuss options for the Cherokee Street Enhancement Project.

  • Quoted

    “The beauty of the maturation of Cherokee Street over the past couple of months is that it has not shown a familiar trajectory for a St. Louis revitalization. There are no posh nightclubs with "pioneer" status nor any ultra-elite art galleries present.

    Rather, there's an organized community dedicated to improving quality of life and maintaining the uniqueness of St. Louis's most diverse and urban business district.”
