How does the CNI relate to these other planning processes?

These past and on-going planning processes will serve as the bases for creating an integrated community vision for land use, economic development, housing and transportation within the study area. Unlike the other plans which are broader in nature, the Paso Gateway Choice Neighborhoods Transformation Plan will provide stie specific recommendations and conceptual site plans ot meet the goals for neighborhood revitalization. These include:

  • Conceptual plans for replacement housing for the 140 units at Chouteau Courts + additional mixed-income housing (within and outside of the study area)
  • Housing Market Study that identifies what the market can support
  • Reuse strategy for the 6.8 acre Chouteau Courts site
  • Development options for key sites
  • Implementation strategy
  • Phasing strategy
  • Implementation budget
