Municipal projects include the City's municipal facilities such as City Hall, the Community Center, or Public Works, and includes street and sidewalk improvements, and park improvements. A majority of municipal projects are conducted in public rights-of-way or on land zoned "PA" Public Activity District.

Other public entities, such as Missouri American Water, Spire, and MSD perform a variety of projects in the City.  While the utility may contract with private contractors to perform the work, responsibility for design, development, and/or construction remains that of the public utility company.
