NACTO is excited to offer a two-part training to St. Louis City Staff and elected officials on May 17 and 18, 2021.
This workshop will highlight best practices in equitable and inclusive public outreach and engagement, particularly as it relates to historic and contemporary efforts around Calm Streets and barrier removal in the City. The workshop will result in a shared understanding of the importance of centering equity and public engagement in transportation decision-making processes throughout the city. Open to St. Louis City Staff and elected officials.
The American Cities Climate Challenge
St. Louis is partnering with NACTO, Charles Brown of Equitable Cities, and Nelson Nygaard for design and engagement support with the expansion of Calm Streets and barrier removal projects to improve access, connectivity and promote walking and biking. This partnership, which includes the virtual workshop, is supported by the Bloomberg Philanthropies American Cities Climate Challenge program which aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the two highest emitting sectors, buildings and transportation, through transformative interventions and policy initiatives. St Louis is one of 25 Climate Challenge cities; since joining the program, St Louis has successfully leveraged Climate Challenge partners and city resources to advance landmark building performance measures and legislation requiring electric vehicles and solar readiness.
