Q & A
Addressed questions and concerns re: other issues:
• Oak Brook – STL County road construction. Scott Bennett explained why work is not yet done and will follow up with
the County.


Discussion revolved around the fact that this team will coordinate the strategic and tactical planning and implementation of project work across the district. Our first challenge is to understand existing processes and procedures to determine if they are adequate or if improvements are needed. Our second challenge is to develop an understanding of the requirements and needs of the other committees in Project Parkway and the impact these requirements and needs have on the district. Ultimately, Goal Three, Focus Area A will be designing the 2013 Bond Issue capturing elements from all parties as we implement Project Parkway imperatives.
