Working To Create A More Healthy, Active & Vibrant Ferguson, Missouri!

Built Environment

The places where we work and go to school and the streets, sidewalks, buildings and parks in our community can encourage healthy or unhealthy behaviors. When the grocery store, library and playground are built near where we live, we are more likely to walk or cycle to get to these places. Active transportation on foot or bicycle can be the most convenient way to travel when streets and sidewalks are safe.

Live Well Ferguson Task Forces are actively involved with the city of Ferguson to ensure that future developments encourage healthy and active living.  Two built environment projects that are already underway in Ferguson are Form-Based Code and a comprehensive Bicycle & Pedestrian Plan.

FORM BASED CODE

Live Well Ferguson and the City of Ferguson are working with Farr Associates to draft a form-based code for Downtown Ferguson. A form-based code is a set of zoning regulations used to achieve a community vision by addressing the relationship and scale of buildings, public spaces, and streets with an urban form.

BICYCLE & PEDESTRIAN PLAN

In 2011, the city of Ferguson worked with Trailnet and H3 Studio to design a more bikeable and walkable future for Ferguson.
