Riverfront Development and Land Use

Please Note:  WSCO is trying out a new format for committees.  RDLU and HEJ committees are meeting on the same evening in December as part of the West Side Voices: Food and Forum.


West Side Voices: Food and Forum - Tuesday, December 11 - 6:00pm  - Baker Center (209 Page St W)



The Riverfront Development and Land Use committee meets every 3rd Tuesday of the month at 6:30 pm at the WSCO office at the Baker Community Center on 209 Page St W.  For further information about this committee, please contact the committee chair Kareem Smith, kareems@wsco.org, or WSCO staff, info@wsco.org.

Persons 16 years of age or above residing on the West Side who attend three (3) consecutive meetings become voting members.


We focus on how construction, development, and building improvements have an impact on our quality of life on the West Side. We regularly make recommendations to the Zoning Board, and the Zoning Board of Appeals.

We work to coordinate the physical development efforts on the West Side with a particular focus on the Flats and District Del Sol.  As plans move forward for the development of the West Side Flats, WSCO volunteers and staff are working with city officials and developers to ensure that new riverfront projects benefit our community. Our priorities are: creating housing (including affordable units) and access to the river from multiple places on the West Side; and ensuring the vitality of existing local businesses and the beauty and health of the Mississippi.
