OneSTL (working toward regional sustainability)

OneSTL is a collaboration to encourage and support greater sustainability within the eight-county St. Louis region. OneSTL launched in 2010 when eleven organizations partnered on a grant to create a regional plan for sustainable development. East-West Gateway Council of Governments, the Metropolitan Planning Organization for the St. Louis Region, led the effort with the intention of: 

  • Building local and regional leaders’ capacity to implement sustainable practices by sharing knowledge, best practices, and resources
  • Connecting local, regional, state, and federal planning efforts
  • Making federal and local investments more effective and efficient 

The Plan was completed in 2013 and laid out a vision for a prosperous, healthy, and vibrant region. After a 2017 regional Sustainability Summit, participants formed Working Groups to focus on specific targets in the following areas:
