Comprehensive Plan

Comprehensive Plan

Blueprint Glendale Logo - CopyThe City of Glendale is currently in the process of developing “Blueprint Glendale,” the City’s first Comprehensive Plan, along with an update of the City’s zoning code (which was originally adopted back in 1963).

Blueprint Glendale and the revised zoning code will guide the physical character of development, public space and infrastructure in Glendale. They will be written in response to the Glendale community’s goals and aspirations and be built upon a community-supported and community-driven Vision for the future of Glendale.

The Comprehensive Plan will serve as a policy guide to be used by City staff, the Board of Aldermen, Planning and Zoning Commission, Architectural Review Board, and other area leaders for making decisions about long-term devel­opment, improvements, services and other investments in the City.

Please join us on Tuesday, June 25, 2024, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. for our first Blueprint Glendale public workshop. The workshop will be held in the auditorium at Glendale City Hall, located at 424 N. Sappington Road. The theme for Blueprint Glendale is “Embracing Today, Planning the Future,” and we need your help to develop it!

At the workshop, we’ll share a summary of the Glendale’s existing conditions and ask for your voice on what you value about the present of Glendale and what hopes you have for the future. The workshop will involve small group discussions where you can share your thoughts as well as opportunities to provide written feedback. 

For questions or more information, please give us a call at 314-965-3600 or email

Blueprint Glendale FAQ

Who is leading the Blueprint Glendale project?

The City of Glendale has contracted with a professional planning services team, headed by H3 Studio, to lead this process. H3 was selected following a public RFP process and the firm has recently completed or is working on comprehensive plan updates for the Missouri cities of Festus, Lebanon, Florissant, Union, Frontenac and Washington.

What if I can’t make it to any of the public workshops?

There are still plenty of ways you can share your feedback with us! You can submit comments by email to, send us a message on Facebook, mail them to us at City Hall at 424 N. Sappington Rd., or give us a call at 314-965-3600. 

How can I receive updates about Blueprint Glendale?

The best way to stay up-to-date about the project and all the latest news from the City of Glendale is to sign up for our weekly email newsletter. You can also follow us on social media on Facebook, X or Instagram.

When will Blueprint Glendale be completed?

Work on the comprehensive plan and the updates to the zoning code is expected to continue through most of 2024 with several opportunities for public engagement and feedback available throughout the upcoming months. 

What happens after the project is finished?

Using input from the public, elected officials, City staff and a Steering Committee, H3 will prepare a final draft of Blueprint Glendale for adoption by the Glendale Board of Aldermen. The Board of Aldermen will also need to approve the proposed revisions to the City’s zoning code. 

The adoption of the comprehensive plan and the zoning code updates don’t mark the end of the process, however. City staff and elected officials will then work on implementing the vision and goals outlined in Blueprint Glendale over the coming years and decades.
