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!

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.
