Cherokee Street Enhancement Project

Posted by Jason Deem on November 22, 2008 | 1 Comment

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.

The project has federal funding along with local capital improvement monies to potentially address:
*  the area between the curb and the sidewalk
*  pedestrian lighting
*  limited concrete repairs
*  wheelchair ramp requirements
*  possibly trees

Please invite as many members of the community and businesses as possible who will be affected by this project.  The enhancement project includes the commercial strip from Jefferson to Nebraska.
