Land Use Master Plan

In September 2019, a team was called to develop a Land Use Master Plan for the St. Andrew campus. We asked for suggestions from the congregation, staff, and Session regarding the dreams and hopes for our campus.

Although no timeline has been set for any of these projects, the Session in January 2020 approved a Land Use Master Plan that includes the following components:

In June 2021, the Session approved plans for additional landscaping around the front entrance of the church

If you have any questions about these plans, please contact the church office:

Parking expansion

St. Andrew’s parking lots currently have 185 parking spaces. To prepare for future growth, Session set a goal of reserving enough land to provide a total of 350 parking spaces. After working with engineers, Session approved multiple options for parking expansion.

LandScaping Plans

Working with Kasper's Landscape and Design, St. Andrew's Building & Grounds Team has envisioned a number a ways to ensure that the upper level entrance to the building remains an inviting and welcoming space. In June 2021, Session approved a Master Plan for Landscaping that includes the images below as some examples of our the space can be used.

Landscaping Master Plan
(Front Entrance)

prayer paths

More than a mile's worth of walking paths have been mowed into the beautiful prairie grasses surrounding St. Andrew's building. Friends and members of the congregation are encouraged to use them for times of prayer and meditation.

Outdoor Chapel

Session approved the basic design for an Outdoor Chapel located south of the church building. The original limestone chancel, saved from the Melrose property, should be used.

Memorial Garden

A Memorial Garden could be placed within or next to the Outdoor Chapel. It would have an area for contemplation, and perhaps memorial bricks to commemorate loved ones.

Walking Path

A path would start at the lower parking lot, go to the Outdoor Chapel, then wind around the retention pond and up the east side of the property to the existing area.


A number of fruit trees could be placed south of the Lettuce Feed Others garden and along the line of the eventual path to the Outdoor Chapel.
