Lemay Streetscape Project Receives Honor

The Award Comes from the Lemay Chamber of Commerce

The St. Louis County Port Authority, which is staffed by the St. Louis Economic Development Partnership, has received the 2017 Community Impact Award from the Lemay Chamber of Commerce.  The honor comes from more than a year of work on the Lemay Streetscape Project, which runs along Lemay Ferry Road between Military Road and Hoffmeister Avenue in South County.

The Streetscape Project replaced sidewalks, upgraded bus shelters and installed bike racks.  It also added lighting, rain gardens and crosswalks that are accessible under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).  The recognition was one of seven at the 40th-annual Lemay Chamber of Commerce Awards Dinner on Wednesday at Orlando’s Event & Conference Center in South County.

Greg Hayden, a Port Authority board member who owns Luxemberg Realty, and several Partnership staff members attended the event.  Mike Vogt, a real estate & community investment project manager who specializes in South County, gave a short speech and accepted the award.

Since 2011, the Port Authority has provided financial support to development projects through the Lemay Façade Program.  Recipients in the past fiscal year include the Lemay Housing Partnership, Lemay Development Corporation and Lemay Child & Family Center.

In May, the Port Authority picked up the Missouri Park and Recreation Association’s (MPRA) Citation Award.  The honor is a statewide recognition of organizations with impactful contributions to parks and recreation for the citizens of Missouri.
