Transformation, now known as the Transform Jeff City campaign, is the economic development strategic plan put forward by the Jefferson City Area Chamber of Commerce that proposes a 10-year half-cent economic development sales tax, which is being sponsored by the city and is on the Feb. 7 ballot.

The News Tribune has broken down the list of 30 projects, with a total price tag of $40.987 million, into five different categories, summarizing each project and showing the individual costs associated with each.

Summaries of these five different categories:

Summaries of MSP/Conference Center projects

Summaries of Retail and Angel Network projects

Summaries of riverfront development projects

Summaries of St. Mary's Redevelopment and Lincoln University Transformation projects

Summaries of Old Town, Capitol Avenue and Downtown Transformation projects
