The City of Kirkwood recently completed the Kirkwood by Design project, which was a project intended to update all portions of the city codes related to zoning and the subdivision of land as a step toward implementing Envision Kirkwood 2035, the city's adopted comprehensive plan. These codes contain the regulations that address how properties can be used in different areas, known as zoning districts, as well as site design elements such as signage, landscaping, parking, access, and architectural design, to name a few. 
The Kirkwood City Council formally adopted the updated code sections on February 18, 2021. The city would like to thank everyone that took time to participate in the effort that helped create codes that will not only implement the plan but achieve the goal of creating modern regulations that will be both easier to use and administer. The final, adopted codes can be found on the Kirkwood Planning and Zoning website, accessible by clicking on the button below.
This website will continue to be active through April 10, 2021 with archived project materials, after which, the website will be eliminated. Should you have any questions regarding the new codes or the Kirkwood by Design project, please feel free to reach out to the Planning & Development Services Director, Jonathan Raiche ( or by phone at 314-984-5926.
