SAINT LOUIS, MO – After receiving inputs from numerous citizens, the Saint Clair County Transit District, or SCCTD, and Citizen for Modern Transit (CMT) are collaborating to conduct community events, namely Transit Stop Transformation Project in East St. Louis on August 21.

The project aims to change the concrete area into an interactive, playful, and engaging spaces in the pass through of the bus bays and MetroLink. They want to represent the history of East St. Louis and make it part of the community. They also tend to create a mural in the pedestrian overpass to show the historic importance of music there.

The purpose of the project is to transform the concrete area between the MetroLink entrance and bus bays into a playful, interactive, and engaging space and makes it a part of the community. This area gives a nod to the history of music in East St. Louis and there's also a mural on the pedestrian overpass that shows the historic importance of music in East St. Louis.

SCCTD and CMT have the final design for the new space with the help of the CBB/PGAV team to boast a vibrant-colored jazz theme. They want to create the greenery nuance, shaded seating with canopies, for St. Louisans to come. The team is affiliated with Added Dimension, LLC and East St. Louis High School students as well to create the design for the mural site.

The final design shows a vibrant-colored jazz theme, with greenery, spaces to gather, canopies, shaded seating, and more (see rendering). This final design was developed by the CBB/PGAV team, along with Added Dimension, LLC, and East St. Louis Highschool students, which included a mural for the site.

Transit Stop Transformation Project serves the efforts to raise awareness regarding "placemaking" by CMT and AARP around the transit area. They want to create transforming places to pass through for their next destination into active and engaging corridors to connect the people in the neighborhood with access to the green spaces.

The "Transit Stop Transformation Project" supports the ongoing efforts of the Citizens for Modern Transit and AARP in St. Louis to raise awareness about "placemaking" around transit areas. This is to turn the places that people usually pass through into active and engaging corridors that offer access to products, services, green space, and activities.

Kimberly Cella, an Executive Director of CMT, believes this project will reconnect the community, promote social equality, enable growth, increase accessibility, redecorate the public space, and improve the safety of the neighborhood.
