City of St.   Louis, Boeing Announce Open Streets Partnership


In a press conference held this morning at Old Post Office Plaza, Mayor Francis G. Slay and President and CEO of Boeing Defense, Space, & Security, Dennis Muilenburg announced the City’s partnership with Boeing to present the 2010 Open Streets series.


“This event is meant to encourage St. Louisans to get physical activity, to explore their City, and to interact with each other,” said Mayor Slay. “Boeing understands that this will be an important event for the City of St. Louis – and I am thankful that


During the first Open Streets event on May 1, 2010, five miles of Lindell and Locust (from Forest Park and Kingshighway to Old Post Office Plaza) will be closed to vehicular traffic. During that time, walkers, runners, and cyclists will be encouraged to enjoy the car-free streets. Three activity hubs located along the length of the route will host a variety of fun activities – aerobics, Zumba, hula-hooping, yoga, walking tours, and safety and health demonstrations.


Because Boeing is committed to ensuring that St.   Louis’ citizens are healthy and fit, they have agreed to be the major corporate sponsor. Boeing will host a tent for its employees at the Forest Park end of the route.
