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.
The City of Ferguson is partnering with a planning team that includes St. Louis-based planning firm Development Strategies and Rise Community Development. The planning team is working under the guidance and direction of a Steering Committee, composed of Ferguson residents and community leaders.
The planning process includes four community workshops over the course of the year. The planning team will also come to community events, work with community groups, and create a survey to reach more voices and perspectives in the community.
The comprehensive plan is an opportunity for the Ferguson community to own its future, and create a vision that truly reflects its priorities. For the plan to match the community’s priorities, the City and the planning team need to hear what is most important to residents: we need your voice.
