Community development through transportation infrastructure? Transportation’s impact on the neighborhood

Many neighborhoods in St. Louis are burdened by rising poverty, falling population, and stagnating property values.  Can transportation infrastructure like public transit help revitalize these “weak market” communities?  Can St. Louis impact its neighborhoods with transit? Join CMT and Creating Whole Communities for a discussion on the possibilities for St. Louis around transit.

With the help of a national expert from Enterprise Community Partners, a panel of community development practitioners will address this question, focusing specifically on the multi-modal transportation corridor extending from Forest Park to UMSL and the prospects for mixed-used development around transit.  This corridor spans the infamous “Delmar Divide” and therefore raises the burning question of how to extend the prosperity of the Central Corridor to the disadvantaged communities of North St. Louis City and County through transportation infrastructure.  
Enterprise Community Partners (formerly Enterprise Foundation) works with community-based nonprofit organizations to develop nearly 320,000 affordable homes and invest nearly $16 billion throughout the United States
