About the Comprehensive Planning Process

The Process

OurFerguson is the City of Ferguson’s first comprehensive planning effort since 1997. This plan will outline a long-range vision for the city’s approach to land use, housing, jobs, business, open space, and more. The plan will also clarify, align, and fill gaps between the many other community initiatives in and around Ferguson.

For the plan to truly reflect the community’s vision, the planning team and the City need the community’s voice to drive the process. In collaboration with City staff, the plan’s Steering Committee, and other community stakeholders, the planning team is engaging the Ferguson community over the course of the planning effort through community workshops, pop-ups, youth forums, a web-based survey, focus groups, and more. The diagram below describes some of the key milestones for engagement.
