St. Louis County Looks to Mix Uses

Officials in St. Louis are looking to update the county's zoning codes to allow denser housing, and a greater mix of land uses.

Currently, most of the unincorporated areas of the county are single-use areas. Planners are in favor of creating more mixed-use areas.

"The county's current codes cover the unincorporated area, the home of about a third of the county's residents. They now favor separating commerce from residential and separating single-family from multifamily housing.

The new codes would encourage communities in which apartments, condos, houses, offices, stores and restaurants mix together."
