Residents Meet on Possible J.C. Conference Center

The mayor talked about possible concerns and opened the meeting up for discussion.  One Jefferson City resident voiced his approval as well as concerns for the conference center.  Don Trabue said he was interested in the idea of a conference center when it was brought up a few years ago but nothing ever came of the idea, so now he's back.

"My main purpose is hoping that this time that they will develop what this town needs in order to move forward to be progressive."

Trabue said the earlier proposal could have worked but he thinks the developer pulled out because of political maneuvering.  A member of the Convention and Visitors Bureau Board says things will be different this time around.

"We have too much pent up demand in Jefferson City for a facility, a conference center facility for something not to happen...We've been missing too much business for too long," said Charlie Brzuchalski.

The mayor said he believes the center's future location will be on McCarty street in what is currently the State Health Laboratory.  A new lab is under construction which will soon leave the old one empty.  The site is desirable because it's close to Highway 50-63; it's next to the Capitol Plaza Hotel and there is a residential area on the other side that could be converted into parking for the center.

The City's next step is to put out a proposal request for private parties to submit plans.
