Historic Preservation Committee recommends tradition on Broadway

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KRCU) - The Broadway Corridor Enhancement Project was presented to Cape Girardeau’s Historic Preservation Committee Wednesday in a public session. It marked another step on the road towards a more beautiful route to downtown Cape Giraradeau.

While the vibe was overwhelmingly positive, issues such as safety and sustainability were still raised by the committee and citizens in attendance such.

David Goncher says the project needs to take into account traffic flow … not only down Broadway but also across it.

However he is still excited about what the project could mean for the downtown district.

"It would approve the aesthetics obviously, but hopefully it will bring small business owners back to Broadway, and give it some, give Broadway some life again," Goncher said.

As for the committee, members were very supportive of the project and they recommend the plan feature more traditional design elements in order to keep in line with Broadway’s many historic buildings.
