The Zoning Code comprises Chapter 25 of the City’s Municipal Code. The purpose of the Zoning Code is to regulate and control the zoning and the use of land and buildings within the city in order to promote the public safety, health and general welfare of the citizens. Specifically, the Zoning Code controls the use of property and the density of development and provides standards for site improvements such as parking, lighting, landscaping, building design and signage to ensure consistent, orderly and well-designed development.
Two versions of the Zoning Code are available on this page. The Codified Version of the Code is that which has been adopted by the City Council. The Interpretive Version presents the Code in a two-column format with supplemental commentary, interpretations, photographs and illustrations to help the reader better understand and use the Code. This version was the recipient of the St. Louis Municipal League's Innovation Award for 2009. It is important to keep in mind that the information contained in the sidebar of the Interpretive Version is purely informational and does not represent the official Zoning Code that has been adopted by the City of Maryland Heights.
Each section is available for download below. The complete Zoning Code may also be downloaded at the bottom, but due to the size of the files the download time may be significant. The complete Codified Version is 4.07 MB and the complete Interpretive Version is 5.49 MB.
