Press Release

The Housing Authority of the City of Jefferson, Missouri, acting as the Land Clearance for Redevelopment Authority, is seeking proposals for redevelopment of 608 East State Street.  Proposals will be accepted from redevelopers until 4:30 pm on October 29, 2018.  The requirements for the proposal may be found on the Housing Authority website at and are attached to this announcement.

The Land Clearance for Redevelopment Authority will review the proposals at a closed meeting currently scheduled for November 20, 2018 at 7:30 a.m.  Proposals will be evaluated based on proposed use, impact on the removal of blight in the area, historical relevance of the use, impact of the proposal on future renovations in the areas, financial stability of the developer, the developer’s experience and reputation, and price.

The building will be open for inspection by potential redevelopers on October 3, 2018 at 1:30 p.m. 

“This is the first property in the East Capital Avenue Urban Renewal Area that is available for redevelopment.  The Land Clearance for Redevelopment Authority is looking forward to receiving proposals to restore this vacant property.  Many home owners in the area have stepped up to make improvements and now there is an opportunity for other properties to be restored” noted Cynthia Quetsch, Executive Director of the Housing Authority.  “Over the past two years people have expressed interest in redeveloping the historic homes in this area.  This is the first of hopefully many more properties that will be restored either by redevelopers working the with Land Clearance for Redevelopment Authority, landowners, or individuals who have privately acquired the properties.  The outlook is promising for elimination of blight in this area.”
