Lake Saint Louis began in 1966 as a private recreational lake community envisioned by developer Mr. R. T. Crow. In June of 1967, the Lake Saint Louis declaration of covenants and restrictions was signed and recorded. For the next 12 years, the sole governing entity in the community was the Community Association. It was not until May of 1975 that the community also became a city under the Revised Statutes of Missouri.
Today, Lake Saint Louis offers municipal services to our residents, including police, parks, public works, community development, municipal court, snow removal, building inspection and code enforcement. We have a beautiful Civic Center located at 200 Civic Center Drive to serve our residents.
The City is a ‘Tree City, U.S.A.’ community with approximately 14,000 residents calling Lake Saint Louis home. We will continue to grow as both residential and commercial properties are developed.
