I don't think CarsonNewman has really been doing anything to help with the downtown area so far. Its a totally separate group that started all of that. Not the college.

It is a shame though that the college doesn't contribute more to the community that surrounds them. It helps them out just as much to revitalize that area.

I hope this group keeps it up. Cause we sure do need it!

at this point who cares if it is the City, County, private investors, college or the king of England..Downtown Jefferson City needs some love and care and a facelift.
It seems like there is good momentum right now going in the right direction.
Thank goodness for anyone that wants to improve the downtown. Did not live here when all the buidlings were up and running, but you can tell it used to be a very pretty downtown and it would be such a shame to let the buildings continue to go.
We need investors to kick start the area and bring in shops, diner, etc to get commerce going again.
The best thing we can do is shop downtown and support the people that have buesinesses there, so they can keep the downtown open.
Why don't you throw in your retirement package into a small business that cannot possibly be sustained without multiple businesses creating an environment where people want to shop and do business.

This downtown revitalization is obviously not an new problem, but some powers decided years ago that 11E would hold the business interest of Jeff City. They sold out the downtown area so any frustration, aggression, or rude comments belong to those who sold the downtown area out many years ago.
