Community Engagement

Public Engagement MeetingEast-West Gateway Council of Governments (EWG) has always had a strong commitment to public involvement in its regional decision-making processes. EWG’s Board of Directors make transportation-related decisions affecting everything from the vitality of the St. Louis region’s economy to the daily lives of the region’s citizens. EWG’s work impacts the region’s environment and neighborhoods. Public guidance and advice are a vital consideration in how EWG allocates millions of dollars to transportation and other projects in the St. Louis region.

Public Involvement Plan

The expectations and procedures for public involvement in the St. Louis region’s transportation planning and other process are outlined in EWG’s Public Involvement Plan. The plan outlines EWG’s resources and approach but most importantly it outlines specific public involvement goals and strategies that EWG’s staff will work to achieve in the coming years.
