At its June 13 meeting, the Clayton Board of Aldermen approved a bill to jointly apply, along with the cities of Brentwood and Richmond Heights, to the East-West Gateway Council of Governments for a Brentwood Boulevard Trail Routes Study grant. . . .

The board cited the road's status as a principal arterial in the region with attributes that can make bike and pedestrian use challenging. . . .

During a general discussion session later in the meeting, Alderman Joanne Boulton detailed a meeting that she and Mayor Harold Sanger had recently attended. The event, organized by the National Association of City Transportation Officials, featured traffic and planning representatives from several municipalities, including St. Louis County, St. Louis City, Wildwood and Kirkwood, as well as Trailnet, the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) and The East-West Gateway Council.

MoBikeFed comment: It is heartening to see cooperative work among neighboring cities moving forward to remove barriers to safe walking and bicycling.

Events like the recent NACTO Sister Cities Roadshow create the opportunity for city leaders to meet together and work on joint projects like the Brentwood Blvd project.
