Kelly Green takes over as Cape Girardeau Development Services Director

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KRCU) - Cape Girardeau city engineer Kelly Green is the city’s new Development Services Director. Green officially took over the role on September 5.

The position manages economic development and engineering for the city. Green says her goal is to streamline the city’s customer service for developers.

"One way I think that we can do that is start looking at more of a one-stop shop," Green said. "Right now it can be very confusing to developers. They don’t know which division they need to go and talk. And if they would have one location and one person to come and talk to kind of help guide them through the process, I think that would be very helpful for them. And that’s my primary goal."

Green says a developer can be anything from a homeowner who wishes to add a new room … to a big-box retail chain.

The position has been vacant since Ken Eftink resigned last month.
