Comprehensive Plan Implementation Underway

Comp Plan

The city is taking steps to implement the recently adopted Comprehensive Plan. Creve Coeur 2030, which guides the city’s land use policies and serves as an update to the 2002 Comprehensive plan, was adopted by the Planning and Zoning Commission in March 2017. The implementation plan outlines several early action items including:

  • Establish an ongoing outcome reporting and management system to track progress
  • Develop and adopt a stormwater ordinance for lots less than one acre in area
  • Develop and adopt updates to the city’s Zoning Ordinance for residential districts
  • Adopt the 39 North plant science and agriculture technology district master plan and facilitate development of the project
  • Complete and adopt substantive revisions to Creve Coeur’s regulatory ordinances
  • Complete the city’s new police station and enhancements to the Government Center
  • Support implementation of the Gateway Bike Plan in Creve Coeur by completing key facility developments
  • Construct greenways to improve pedestrian and bicycle connectivity and provide enhanced recreational opportunities

The city has already begun and completed some of these goals. The Planning and Zoning Commission adopted the 39 North Master Plan at their meeting on June 5. In partnership with St. Louis County and the St. Louis Economic Development Partnership, the City Council has approved funding for several components of the plan including the Old Olive Great Streets master plan, design for the Olive/Lindbergh Interchange, Phase 1 of the 39 North Greenway, and marketing efforts. The council also adopted a new stormwater ordinance on October 30, and progress on the new police station is on track for the building to open in early 2019.

The city is also exploring options to improve pedestrian and bicycle connectivity in the area. The Creve Coeur Energy and Environment Committee is currently looking into improvements to Spoede Road and North New Ballas Road to make them more bicycle friendly. City staff is examining two specific opportunities to construct off-street greenways as outlined in the plan. An initial segment of the “Deer Creek Greenway” would connect Malcolm Terrace Park to Spoede Road utilizing an Ameren utility right-of-way, part of a former historic railroad right-of-way. A portion of the “Western Greenway” would connect Conway Road to Ladue Road west of I-270 utilizing subdivision common ground.

As these initiatives progress, additional opportunities for public input will be provided. For more information, visit www.creve-coeur.org/compplan or contact Jason Jaggi, Director of Community Development, at jjaggi@crevecoeurmo.gov or (314) 872-2504.
