The East-West Gateway Council of Governments has a new website. We want you to check http://www.ewgateway.org out, spend time exploring it, and contact us with any request or question.
East-West Gateway, formed in 1965, surfaced its first website in 1997. The last revision of its website was in 2008.
As the federally designated metropolitan planning organization for the St. Louis region, East-West Gateway approves federal funding for any major transportation project in the region, which includes the city of St. Louis and the surrounding seven counties in Illinois and Missouri. The redesign of the East-West Gateway website was performed in part to improve access to data, meeting agendas, regional priorities, and project timelines.
The 29-member East-West Gateway Board of Directors has its public meeting at 10 a.m. on the last Wednesday of the month at our office at 1 S. Memorial Drive in downtown St. Louis. The board consists of the top elected officials of the metro area and regional citizens appointed by those elected officials.
East-West Gateway has staff working on transportation planning, community planning, administration, regional security, and research. Research staff provides demographic and economic data and analysis needed to plan projects and qualify them for funding. East-West Gateway staffs the St. Louis Area Regional Response System (STARRS), which coordinates planning and funding for response to man-made and natural disasters in the area.
Community planning helps oversee air quality monitoring for the area, is involved with water quality management, and manages OneSTL, a regional plan for sustainable development.
