Where will Cape Girardeau be in 2040 and what will it look like? Answers to those questions have been offered after the Cape Vision 2040 project was approved over the summer. City Planner Ryan Shrimplin came on the program to talk about the progress that has been made on the project.

The City of Cape Girardeau is adopting a new comprehensive planning process called "Cape Vision 2040".

 

Since adopting their current plan a decade ago, new developments have taken place in the city, and the community’s focus has shifted to new issues. According to city planner Ryan Shrimplin, these are two indicators that pushed the city to hire a consultant to develop a long-range blueprint for the growth and development of Cape Girardeau.
