A second public workshop for the Central West End Sustainable Development Plan and Code will be held from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 26 at Schlafly Library, 225 N. Euclid.

This is an excellent opportunity to contribute the future of the Central West End. I can’t say that the first meeting was riveting from beginning to end, but this is the process by which our city is governed. If you want your voice to be heard beyond the comments section of this blog (and I do always appreciate comments) you should attend.

Slideshow presentation of CWE Sustainable Development Plan & Code from the first public meeting can be viewed below.

Below is the slideshow presentation from the public meeting courtesy of Take a look at the whole thing in detail. It’s comprehensive and does an excellent job of spelling out some development and zoning options. If you’re not into reading there’s some excellent eye candy as well. The first shows existing conditions and issues and the second lays out future options.

What does the Central West End want? The status quo with all future development guided by existing buildings or a framework that would invite significantly more density on Kingshighway, Euclid, Forest Park Parkway and Vandeventer?
