St. Louis Park Zoning MapThe City of St. Louis Park's zoning ordinance, chapter 36 of the city code, establishes regulations and minimum requirements controlling the location, construction, alteration and use of structures and land within the city.

The ordinance creates use districts, which regulates what activities are permitted in different parts of the city. For example, city council may determine that a heavy industrial zone is not appropriate in a certain location because of its proximity to sensitive environmental features or residential districts. Zoning also creates minimum and maximum standards for yard area (setbacks), architectural materials, height and parking. The purpose of the ordinance is the protection of the health, safety and welfare of the community.

Zoning map

The city's official zoning map shows the different districts and their boundaries. St. Louis Park has 11 zoning districts. The zoning district associated with a property can be found on the map; the standards for each district are located in the zoning ordinance.

The zoning district of a property may be modified by city council. When considering modifications to the official zoning map, city council considers the request of the applicant, recommendations of city staff and the St. Louis Park Planning Commission, and guidance found in the city's comprehensive plan.
