From St. Louis Post-Dispatch:
Eight months after picking the lead designer of the Chouteau Greenway, backers of the planned bike and pedestrian trail are closer to deciding how it will connect Forest Park and the St. Louis riverfront.
"Because of SLU's diverse geospatial research and training portfolio, we are well positioned to support the NGA's work," Fred Pestello, president of SLU, said in a statement. "Our expertise is an asset for the agency as well as the region, and I am pleased that we will be able to partner with the NGA on their vital work."
As part of the agreement, SLU will provide the agency with subject matter expertise, test support and technical assistance in emerging research areas, like unmanned aircraft systems and predictors of regional conflict, officials said. The university also will provide geospatial training and professional development.
