Loop Corridor Plan Wins Award

The American Society of Landscape Architects in St. Louis has given our Loop Corridor Plan the Professional Merit Award! This award recognizes the work done by Arcturis and The Loop CID to reach out to the community, analyze the needs of the street, and develop a workable plan for improving the Business Loop.

From the jury:

“A strong sense of place for the corridor based on marketing and community outreach.”

Our process relied on extensive community engagement with public input meetings, social media outreach,  online surveys, and face-to-face sessions. The public input had a significant impact on the final plan, including the creation of public spaces, improved bike and pedestrian access, and other placemaking activities.

From the jury:

“Public spaces were economically attainable for a city and will promote investment.”
