What is a Comprehensive Plan?

A comprehensive plan is a policy document that details the City's long-term vision and goals, and outlines the steps necessary to achieve them. The plan is intended to guide growth and development in an organized, efficient, and sustainable manner. To do so, it looks to the future to anticipate trends and issues that could impact how growth and development occur. The plan is long range in scope, focusing on the ultimate needs of the community rather than the pressing concerns of today.

Comprehensive Plan Update

While the planning horizon for a Comprehensive Plan is typically 20-30 years, it's important to review and update the plan in the interim to ensure the vision described in the plan is still the vision residents have for the community. The City's existing Comprehensive Plan was adopted in 2009. Since that time, many of the plan's goals have been completed and new opportunities have been presented. With extensive public participation, residents will create a playbook for the City that outlines the steps needed to achieve the community's vision.

To help us with this important task, the City has hired consultants Town Planning & Urban Design Collaborative (TPUDC). We look forward to hearing everyone's voice during this update process. Visit this website often to stay updated on progress, events and to provide your input and feedback.

    I was instrumental in helping pickleball increase in popularity in the St. Louis area. It is only going to continue to grow as more and more people learn about the game. Pickleball is a sport played by all ages and skill levels with health and social benefits. Just curious if Chesterfield has plans to increase the number of indoor and outdoor courts available for play? Also, they may want to look into Chicken-n-Pickle (a combination restaurant/pickleball facility). Currently, I am aware of venues in Kansas City and Wichita. Thank you for the steps you are taking to make Chesterfield even better than it is and to appeal to all people and their interests. Ann Donohue (314) 482-8495 pe4akc@yahoo.com

    Thanks for the comments and questions.  The City’s Parks Department has been updating their master plan and we are going to incorporate the information into the Comprehensive Plan effort.  We hope to have that information soon and will incorporate your comments into our process.

    Also, make sure you mark your calendar to attend Planapalooza (https://www.envisionchesterfield.com/planapalooza).

    What low-income housing will be built close to Chesterfield Valley? We need to retain options for people who currently live in the trailer park. It is not fair to push these residents out of the city. They are workers in Valley restaurants, students at Logan, and other lower-income people for whom the trailer park is currently the only option. How will your plan accommodate them?

    Thank you so much for your input. This is exactly the type of discussion we want to have with the community throughout this planning process, which is just only beginning now. There are no plans at this point, but housing affordability is definitely an issue we will be discussing in more depth. Please continue to be involved and if you can, do attend events or provide your input via this site. The page called "Tell Us What You Think" is where most of the online discussion will occur.

    I have lived in chesterfield for over 40 yrs. In the last 8-10 yrs chesterfield is allowing construction of commercial / mixed use projects ( apartments) that are of extremely high density for the site on which they are building. This leaves little to no green space on the site, forces parking to underground and building to get taller and taller. I do not think this is in the best interest of our community. Examples of this is projects that are in or near other residential homes. The new apartment complex behind chesterfield mall, The nursing home behind chesterfield mall, the Sheldon nursing home project that was defeated and not built at the corner of Baxter and Wildhorse creek road. More are in the works....is this the vision for our community or do you have any respect for density of projects that you allow.

    Having served as the project manager on many comprehensive plans for local political jurisdictions when I was a working planning consultant, I am highly interested in the details, such as the project's scope of work, budget, participation effort, schedule and milestones, actors and their roles, mission, goals/objectives, etc. and where the City is in that process.
