Strict residential zoning requirements have maintained large yards and property grounds while unintentionally allowing the continued growth of large populations of white tail deer, to the amusement and ire of many residents. The deer population reached unprecedented levels in the 1990s, leading to a city-sponsored program that air lifted deer to surrounding areas.

Primary thoroughfares traversing the city are Clayton and Ladue Roads.
