The 2016-2017 Lake Saint Louis Comprehensive Plan is the first adopted comprehensive plan for the City of Lake Saint Louis since its incorporation in 1975. As the City has seen rapid growth in recent years, the City needed a comprehensive plan that created a shared community vision for the growth of the community. The resulting Lake Saint Louis Comprehensive Plan utilized a “values-based” approach in shaping the plan recommendations with plan principles included ‘An Outdoor Lifestyle’, ‘Neighborhood Vitality’, ‘Community Character’, ‘A Prosperous Economy’, ‘Fiscal Responsibility, and ‘Community Cohesion’. An extensive community engagement process and a thorough planning process resulted in a plan that was based on market realities, but also matched the vision and values of the community. The plan has seen robust implementation with the plan providing guidance for extensive new development, updates to the zoning code, trail planning, and community identity.  Planners will learn more about the innovative public engagement methods employed, how market analysis shaped the plan, and what implementation tools have been used to ensure immediate success.
