Decades of flooding paired with an opportunity for revitalization are bringing the Brentwood community together to plan for the future and a renewed Manchester Road corridor, through the Brentwood Bound plan.
In 2017, the Brentwood Board of Aldermen approved the Brentwood Bound plan. This plan is a comprehensive solution to overcome flooding and public safety challenges presented by the Deer Creek channel and to enhance the Manchester Road corridor within the city of Brentwood. The three parts of the plan include flood mitigation in the area of Deer Creek, improvements to Manchester Road, and a Deer Creek Greenway connector.
In August, a resident-led Brentwood Bound Task Force was developed to inform the community about the plan and gather community feedback about the plan’s implementation.
The task force is hosting two open houses, Nov. 1, 5:30-7:30 p.m. and Nov. 3, 9 a.m.-noon, at the Brentwood School District Conference Center (1201 Hanley Industrial Court, Brentwood, MO 63144) to give the community an opportunity to learn about the Brentwood Bound plan, ask questions and provide input about the plan and future development in the area.
“This project has the potential to bring new life to this part of our city. Enhanced safety, improved walkability, a connection of parks and trails and an opportunity for redevelopment are only a few of the benefits of this plan. We are excited to gather the community’s input,” says Brentwood Bound Task Force Community Co-Chair Mary White.
For those who cannot attend an open house, information and an online feedback form are available at BrentwoodBound.org.
