This feasibility study is a concise, high level document that outlines opportunities and a process for future sustainable development and conservation in the Maryland Park Lake District. While this report does not make specific recommendations for the type of sustainable development or where conservation should occur, it recommends that a full green infrastructure plan and ecosystem evaluation be undertaken.
We hope this feasibility study and future analysis and planning can lead to development that follows sustainable principles, invests in green infrastructure, and promotes and encourages conservation.
As one of the largest undeveloped areas in the St. Louis metropolitan region, NOW is a once in a lifetime opportunity to promote sustainable development that will create value for landowners, the city, the region, habitat, and wildlife for generations to come.
Multiple groups have already endorsed the report. Additional groups are expected to endorse the report in upcoming months.
