JC Chamber team looks at new uses for old penitentiary
Sunday, August 28, 2011
The Missouri State Penitentiary housed inmates for more than 168 years, but now one action team is looking at ways to restore and reuse the facility.
As part of the Jefferson City Area Chamber of Commerce’s economic development strategic plan “Transformation,” the MSP action team is recommending four proposals to encourage tourism and community activities at the old prison site.
Earlier this month, each action team made a brief presentation of their recommendations and proposals in preparation for the final committee meeting Wednesday.
