Bevo Great Streets Design Charrette Week

The Bevo Great Streets project is a community-driven action plan for our great neighborhood. We are now in  Month 3 of the 6-month project, and next week is DESIGN CHARRETTE WEEK!

Design Week kicks off with Community Meeting #2 on Tuesday, March 19 at Oasis International, 5035 Gravois Avenue. Our consulting team will present 3-5 design concepts for the June 2019 temporary installation/demonstration of the plans created for slowing vehicular traffic, increasing pedestrian traffic, and generally improving the Gravois corridor. Dinner will be served at 5:30; the meeting will start at 6:30. A KIDS ZONE with games, activities, and a homework table will be available to our Bevo Mill families!

On March 20 and 21, our consultants will be hosting a Pop Up Studio at the Bosnian Chamber of Commerce, 5039 Gravois Avenue, from 2:00 to 7:00 pm both days. These two workdays are our opportunity to talk with the design team and view designs in progress for the June 2019 temporary installation/demonstration of the plans for slowing vehicular traffic, increasing pedestrian traffic, and generally improving the Gravois corridor in Bevo Mill. Designers will be collaboratively working and implementing our ideas and suggestion. Please don’t miss these opportunities to give input and be a part of the process. These folks are dedicated to working FOR US!

Design Week concludes on Friday night with Community Meeting #3. At this meeting, our consultants will reveal 1-2 of the preferred designs created in the Pop-Up Studio. Dinner will again be served at 5:30; the meeting will start at 6:30, and the KIDS ZONE with games, activities, and a homework table will be available to our Bevo Mill families!

This project is important! We need EVERYONE to get invested and involved. EVERYONE! This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to make a tangible plan out of the dreams we have for this community with the help of dedicated experts who have fallen as in love with Bevo Mill as we are. They are here FOR US – use them while they are here because we only have them until the end of June!
