East St. Louis OK'd for river cities program

There are 1 comment on the Belleville News-Democrat story from Jan 11, 2008, titled East St. Louis OK'd for river cities program. In it, Belleville News-Democrat reports that:

East St. Louis has been certified as a River Edge Redevelopment Zone, a program designed to help revitalize riverfront areas by helping local developers and businesses revive and redevelop abandoned or contaminated properties.

James Clayborne, D-East St. Louis. Read more
