The Historic Downtown Transportation Revitalization Study builds upon the Master Plan developed for Downtown Wentzville in 2009. The focus of the study is a series of transportation-related projects and enhancements ranging from improved freeway access, new railroad crossings, and the design of streetscapes, murals and gateways. DTLS’ role in this multidisciplinary design team was to focus on gateways, streetscape and beautification.
The complexity of the downtown area required a thoughtful approach to public engagement. DTLS provided additional services in the design of a unique, custom charrette exercise to ensure that the perspective of downtown residents and business owners was captured in a meaningful way. The feedback collected during the charrette led directly into the conceptual design of new gateways, pocket parks, and streetscapes.
Through the multidisciplinary planning process, a new vision emerged for Downtown Wentzville, championing the community’s goal for a walkable and connected downtown area promoting small businesses and healthy lifestyles. Working closely with the City, the design team finalized grant applications, which will hopefully lead to immediate implementation of the plan.
