University City, Missouri, has engaged Planning NEXT, along with subconsultant Ninigret Partners, to develop a new comprehensive plan. The 15-month process, branded as We Make U City, is designed to help the community to make informed decisions about future character and land use, economic development, and more, shaped by public and stakeholder insight.
The process will build off of a recent visioning process that outlined the values, needs, and aspirations of the community. University City is adjacent to the Washington University at St. Louis campus, is part of a dynamic region, and features a mix of small businesses and diverse housing types. A recent visioning process and preliminary discussions with staff and an Advisory Committee have underscored the importance of the planning process focusing on themes relating to equity, sustainable development, and economic opportunity.
Planning NEXT is excited to join this effort!
