As part of the public engagement process to develop the master plan, residents, employees, and visitors to the district overwhelmingly requested improved connectivity for people, bikes, and cars.
After the master plan was completed, an open space and greenway plan was developed to create alignments that would connect the various activity centers in the district and address bike/ped connectivity issues. The 39N Greenway, as it has come to be called, recommends building on the existing and proposed bike and ped systems, such as the Centennial Greenway, as well as creating new greenways that connect within the district.
The Creve Coeur Planning and Zoning Commission adopted the 39N Greenway Plan as a component of the city’s comprehensive plan.
The Danforth Plant Science Center, Bayer Crop Science, St. Louis Economic Development Partnership, the City of Creve Coeur and the City of Olivette, are collaborating with Great Rivers Greenway to develop a preliminary design for the Greenway. The preliminary design is scheduled to be completed by spring 2024, and will provide the foundation for securing funding for construction.
