The Gravois-Jefferson Historic Neighborhoods Plan gives residents a say in how their neighborhood will look for years to come. Adopted in 2018, the plan was developed by Rise Community Development in partnership with Dutchtown South Community Corporation. It has been incorporated into the city’s overall plan as a tool to help drive investment in the neighborhood. Throughout the planning process, community input was gathered to produce a single community plan, covering the area bordered by Jefferson to the east, Gravois and Grand to the west, and Meramec to the south. The plan area encompasses Benton Park West, Gravois Park, and a northern portion of Dutchtown.
The plan guides the work of community organizations, city leaders, and residents as they strive to create vibrant and connected neighborhoods in South St. Louis City.
