Brentwood Bound is a comprehensive plan to renew the Manchester Road corridor between Brentwood Blvd. and Hanley Rd. in the City of Brentwood. There are three components to the plan: Deer Creek flood mitigation, improvements to Manchester Rd. and the addition of a trailway connection to the Great Rivers Greenway.
Together, these projects will help us overcome long-term challenges while enhancing our community for decades to come and providing an opportunity for park and recreational spaces to be enjoyed by all Brentwood residents.
Construction is planned to start in 2020. If funding is available it is anticipated that the flood mitigation, road improvements and Great Rivers Greenway connector will be finished by 2022.
The City of Brentwood has partnered with the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) and Great Rivers Greenway, a regional organization committed to connecting our communities through a dynamic network of greenways. MoDOT will provide the majority of the funding for road improvements included in this project.
The Brentwood Bound plan will be funded through a combination of grant funding, partnerships, funding from certificates of participation (COPs), and, if approved by voters, a one-half of one percent economic development sales tax.
Existing Funding (Grants, partnerships, COPs) $39.2 million
Anticipated Additional Funding (possibly an economic development sales tax) $40.2 million
Anticipated Total Project Cost: $79.6 million
Partnerships and Grants
MoDOT Funding and Grants $9,000,000
Great Rivers Greenway Pledge $3,000,000
East-West Gateway Council of Governments Grant $1,200,000
The City of Brentwood currently has Certificates of Participation (COPs) to fund a portion of the project. This is an alternative to traditional bond funding that allows cities to acquire land, buildings and equipment through a lease-purchase agreement without increasing taxes.
This plan will address flooding and safety challenges while bringing a long-term revenue source to our City. Residents will gain better access to parks, trails and greenspace that will connect the community, as well as improved pedestrian access to local shopping, restaurants and more.
The Brentwood Bound plan is expected to remove businesses from the floodplain and reduce the chances for flooding of businesses and Manchester Road in the area. Improvements to Manchester Road will improve pedestrian safety with sidewalk and ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) improvements, traffic signal upgrades and additional lighting. The planned trails and walkways are also expected to make the area safer for pedestrians and cyclists.
The Brentwood Bound Citizen Advisory Committee is bringing the community together to learn more and provide feedback on this comprehensive solution to overcome flooding and public safety challenges in this area.
