The St. Louis Region's Land Use Model and Custom Planning Portal
Since 2005, East-West Gateway Council of Governments has been using LEAM to conduct its planning analyses of the eight-county St. Louis metropolitan region. A sampling of the planning projects include: ongoing generation of projections for the Long-Range Transportation Plan, quantifying stress to the region's natural assets, and determining the need for a new interstate bridge crossing the Mississippi River. A concurrent redevelopment model has also been built specifically for St. Louis City. LEAM has become fully integrated with East-West Gateway's travel demand model. A custom Planning Portal allows users to access the connected models from any computer via the Internet.
