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 134 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

Transformation Plan Launch - Public Meeting #1

June 9, 2011

To launch the year long planning initiative, a full day was dedicated to introducing residents, community stakeholders and partners to the Chouteau Courts/Paseo Gateway planning process. During the day the stakeholders and partners attended a meeting where they heard from leaders and organizations who introduced the planning area and the major components of the final plan. Also included was a bus tour of the neighborhood to place the planning area in context. In the evening a community meeting was held at Pho’ Hoa Restaurant which introduced the residents to the goals and objectives for the Choice Neighborhoods Initiative and was followed by small group discussions about the preliminary opportunities and concerns of area residents. The feedback from the resident groups focused on housing and neighborhood, transportation and walkability, safety, economic development, and services.
