State of Downtown

The State of the Downtown event recapped everything big that happened in 2017.

Also on today's agenda: plans and projects that are going to happen in 2018.

"There's a few things that we need to do to continue to keep the success and the momentum going downtown. We're going to preview a couple initiatives that we think will be really helpful for developers and those looking for workforce needs," says Kate Herzog, Downtowners Association.

One initiative the State of the Downtown talked about was the Downtown Master Plan.

That plan would connect the Missouri River, the Kirkwood Mall, the event center, and the capitol.

Kate Herzog says she believes it'll be another busy year making downtown even better.
