Introduction and Outline Neighborhood Context- pt3 Neighborhood Context- pt4 Resources FirstClass

Since 1990 ESLARP has completed several master planning studies in partnership with neighborhood action groups in East St. Louis.  This semester we focus on the Alta Sita neighborhood and on siting and green space development issues associated with housing plans at scales ranging from neighborhood-wide strategic plans to green space design associated with particular housing layouts.

Our goal is to communicate creative, feasible and responsible solutions to the constraints of existing site and neighborhood conditions, in order to achieve the best quality of life for future residents.
