Big Muddy Speaker Series

From "Save It, Don't Pave It" to Making the Best of Development

A feasibility study for sustainable development near Creve Coeur Park


 Presentation by Melissa Moulton, co-organizer of Maryland Heights Residents for Responsible Growth


When:   Wednesday, May 13 6:30pm

Where:  Big A's on the Riverfront 

           308 N Main St, St Charles, MO

Traditional large-scale developments bring the specter of long-term environmental damage in the form of disturbed watersheds, poor water quality, destroyed habitat and degradation of green space - not to mention a negative impact on the park.  But is that reality inevitable?  A new idea, "green infrastructure,"is gaining momentum as a way to balance the value of nature and the demands of economic development.

Maryland Heights Residents for Responsible Growth, a local grass-roots organization, recently conducted a feasibility study to identify how green infrastructure methods can protect and conserve natural resources while adding value to development plans.  Melissa will reveal the results of the study, which will be freshly completed.
Melissa Moulton has been a community activist on behalf of Maryland Heights residents for eight years.

Presentation is FREE and open to the public!
