Planning and Zoning Training and Review Manual

Welcome and thank you for using the City of Wentzville's Planning and Zoning Training and Review Manual.  At the February 3, 2011 regular meeting of the Planning and Zoning Commission of Wentzville, staff was directed to assemble key documents and data into a comprehensive manual.  This manual on Wentzville's website is hereby available as a resource to educate the public and may be used by a new Planning Commissioner or our existing Planning Commissioner's and Board of Aldermen members as an ongoing resource.  Provided below are key documents available, which we hope you find helpful and informative.

To more easily use the below information, the City has created a brief description associated with each of the below training documents that will help a user to navigate to a particular document or a particular part of the training to help find an answer or learn about that documents content.  If you need assistance or have questions while exploring this site and documents available, please contact the Planning Division at (636) 639-2032.
