Consortium Partners

The Consortium Partners were the 11 organizations that committed to the grant through a legally binding agreement with HUD. HUD required that the traditional principal city (City of St. Louis), the county with the largest population (St. Louis County), the Metropolitan Planning Organization (East-West Gateway) and a regional public engagement organization (FOCUS St. Louis) be included in the planning process. The remaining Consortium Partners were selected based on their willingness and capacity to contribute to OneSTL. Each of the Consortium Partners was represented on the Steering Committee and was actively engaged in building a regional plan for St. Louis.

The St. Louis County Department of Planning consists of three divisions:

  • Current Planning
  • Comprehensive Planning
  • Community Development

The Department provides both countywide services as well as municipal-type services to the unincorporated areas of St. Louis County. The three divisions work in conjunction with each other, as well as independently, to meet the changing demands and needs of St. Louis County.

Sustainability Goals:

St. Louis County has developed ten priority goals to guide the implementation of our sustainability agenda. Reaching these goals will require substantial commitment, but will yield a common sustainable future for our citizens and communities. This is an opportunity to position ourselves as leaders in the new green economy and to advance a more prosperous future with an even higher quality of life.
