This discussion paper was compiled by the City of St. Louis Planning and Urban Design Agency Research Division to examine the ways that cities have responded to the current pandemic and to survey the evolving conversations on how the COVID-19 pandemic will influence the following subject areas:  buildings & architecture, urban design, open space & green space, transportation, land use & zoning, planning, infrastructure, and other relevant concerns.

By examining and contextualizing these ongoing conversations and responses, cities can better understand how trends, preferences, and policies that have actualized during the pandemic will continue to affect the built environment after the pandemic has subsided. Additionally, reviewing how the pandemic has influenced these areas can provide a roadmap for resiliency as cities adapt to the potential of future disease outbreaks and other emergencies.
