On Thursday, August 9, the St. Louis Regional Sustainable Communities effort met with local citizens to get ideas for what kind of projects would best serve the Granite City-Madison-Venice Tri-City area. It was the second of four meetings intended to plan out future projects.
The effort is being funded by a 2010 HUD Regional Planning grant.
Improvement ideas ranged from creating more business opportunities in the area to picking up where a previously abandoned downtown revitalization effort had left off.
The next meeting will happen sometime in the fall, where proposals for improvements will be presented, with a final meeting in the winter to present and discuss the plan. Drafts of the regional plan will be available sometime mid-2013.
