St. Louis County’s Comprehensive Land Use Plan will guide development in the county for the next 10-20 years, with the goal of fostering a vibrant and healthy county. The plan will provide a vision and road map for the county’s future policy decisions on land use, public investment, infrastructure improvements and intergovernmental cooperation. The plan will be developed with substantial participation from residents, local government officials and a broad range of other stakeholders.
St. Louis County currently has adopted land use plans for most of the areas where the county has land use authority. These plans were originally adopted in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s. There have been updates to the plans, but they remain cumbersome, outdated and in many cases obsolete.
