Purpose Built Cape
PBCEveryone deserves the opportunity to live and raise their children in safe communities where they can achieve their full potential. The City of Cape Girardeau hosted a meeting in November 2016 to let the “Purpose Built Communities” team share their approach to improving a south Cape neighborhood. Neighbors, agencies, bankers, public officials, school leaders and others all gathered because they love Cape and want to provide the education, income and wellness support to help area residents make their neighborhood what they want it to be. 

Since then, there has been improved communication and action among the neighborhood and the city. There's been clean-up activities, new and improved parks projected, a police substation announced, and more.
