Planning and Urban Design Agency

Planning for the future of the City of St. Louis through effective measures of planning, design review, construction plan approval, code compliance, and housing assistance.

Planning & Urban Design Agency

What we do

Along with long range planning, the Planning and Urban Design Agency has several regulatory functions. These include serving as staff for the Planning Commission and Preservation Board about specific projects and agenda actions.

Additionally, PDA staff develops and maintains many useful tools for planning and research. These include GeoStLouis, an online mapping tool primarily suited for researching property snapshots; Historic District maps and designations; and the Strategic Land Use Plan of the St. Louis Comprehensive Plan.

Working with other Federal and State agencies, PDA has developed tools for analysis of current Census data and Economic Indicators. The agency has developed a series of downloadable maps available for free to the public.

Sustainability is important to the City, and the Planning and Urban Design Agency has developed a number of initiatives to encourage bicycle paths, urban trails, and other design concepts.
