On December 19, 2012 ,the Maryville Planning & Zoning Commission unanimously voted to adopt the Maryville Comprehensive Plan as the official plan to guide all future aspects of development and redevelopment in the community. The plan was adopted by Resolution No. 599 in accordance with Chapter 89.360 of the Missouri Revised Statutes.
In late 2010, the City of Maryville hired RDG Planning & Design to develop the plan through an extensive public participation process and by studying existing conditions and possible future growth. The Maryville Comprehensive Plan is a 109-page document intended to guide residential and economic development, community health and connectivity, community image and identity, transportation and movement, and public facilities in order to preserve and improve the quality of life in Maryville.
