Olive Boulevard: Conceptual Master Plan

As part of the implementation on the Olivette Strategic Plan and further the objectives of the Catalyst Strategy, the Department of Planning and Community Development contracted with the Lochmueller Group and Bates Forum to prepare a conceptual master plan for a section of the Olive Boulevard corridor.  The section of Olive extends from Olivette Executive Parkway on the east to Old Bonhomme Road on the west. The objectives of the plan were as follows:

  • Develop ADA-compliant solutions that provide safe and efficient pedestrian crossings, while minimizing impacts to adjoining infrastructure.
  • Create a pleasing sense of place along the corridor, while maintaining satisfactory access to adjacent properties.
  • Produce a plan that competes well for implementation funding.

The intent of the plan is to assist the City further the "Sense of Place" vision of the Olivette Strategic Plan through recommendations and guidance that address:  streetscape uniformity; pedestrian and ADA access; access management, including median replacement; cost estimates; and providing necessary information to facilitate pursuit of funding for implementation.
