The City of Ferguson is currently accepting proposals from qualified firms to perform a comprehensive update to its Zoning, Sign, and Subdivision codes and corresponding zoning map. The new ordinances and map shall be in compliance with State statutes and shall be consistent with the City’s newly adopted Comprehensive Plan and various community plans.
The Zoning Code was approved in its entirety in 1987, and amended numerous times since then. Since that time, the City has seen a dramatic demographic shift, social and cultural unrest, the impact of the internet on brick and mortar retail, and most recently the coronavirus pandemic, all of which have fundamentally altered the way residents, customers, employees, and visitors interact with the built environment of the City.
The City of Ferguson wants the new Code and zoning map to promote development that preserves the appeal of Ferguson while allowing projects that are a “win-win” for current residents, new residents, businesses, developers, and the City as a whole. The City also desires to have up to date, well organized, and concise Codes that implement the goals of the new Comprehensive Plan.
