The Gravois-Jefferson Historic Neighborhoods Plan was unanimously adopted by the City of St. Louis Planning Commission on May 2nd, 2018. Thank you to everyone who was a part of this process to help make this happen, and we will continue to update you with details on implementation activities around the planning effort.
The work isn’t done, it’s just beginng.
The Gravois-Jefferson Historic Neighborhoods Planning process gives residents a say in how their neighborhood will look for years to come. This effort, undertaken by Rise Community Development in partnership with Dutchtown South Community Corporation, aims to gather input to produce a single community plan that will cover the area bordered by Jefferson to the east, Gravois and Grand to the west, and Meramec to the south. It encompasses Benton Park West, Gravois Park, and a northern portion of Dutchtown.
Working with elected officials as well as the City of St. Louis Planning department, the final plan will be incorporated into the city’s overall plan, as a tool to help drive investment in the neighborhood for years to come.
The process is driven by a steering committee of identified community leaders who guide how we move forward with this process.
