Council extends Old Town Cape's contract

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KRCU) - Cape Girardeau’s City Council renewed its contract with Old Town Cape.

Old Town Cape is a non-profit organization that works to revitalize the downtown area through historic preservation and economic development.

Executive director Marla Mills says that the new contract has more specific objectives for the coming year.

“Instead of just working on the strategic plan and on the task on that plan, we are going to better prioritize which ones we might work on and identify those that seem the most likely to work on over the next year,” Mills said.

Mills says that those goals will include already-begun plans … such as the Broadway redevelopment project … and continuous plans, such as the development of a community improvement district.
