Continuing the conversation around planning in our region and the approach to "Start Where You Are, Use What You Have, Do What You Can," this third quarterly program will center around the work of the St. Louis Vacancy Collaborative in the City of St. Louis.
What does it look like when a community and city staff come together to chart a course for addressing approximately 25,000 vacant parcels in the City?
The St. Louis Vacancy Collaborative – a coalition of community members, private and non-profit stakeholders, and City agencies – are joining forces to better understand the scope of the challenge and work together to devise solutions that St. Louis can enact at the individual, street and neighborhood level to begin to put these lots and buildings back into productive use.
