Jeff City Parks Director talks renovations near river

As 93.9 The Eagle first told you, less may be more when it comes to Jefferson City’s parks north of the river.

Parks Director Todd Spalding says the ‘feds’ are going to make the city take out some of the buildings at the Quigg Commons in the river bottom.

“You were to keep it as green space, you weren’t to build any parking lots or structures on it.  That was what got lost in the shuffle.”

Spalding is referring to the federal regulations about what can be built in a flood plain.

While some of the permanent structures may have to come out, the plantings and flowers will remain.

The city bought the property after the Flood of 1993.
