Capitol Avenue Blight Study
The Qualifications for Chapter 99 (LCRA) Designation, otherwise known as a “blight” study, for the Capitol Avenue Study Area has been released. This study was commissioned by the Jefferson City LCRA (Housing Authority) at the request of Mayor Tergin and the City Council. 

On August 16, 2016, the study was presented to the LCRA Board of Commissioners by consultant John Brancaglione, of PGAV Planners. The LCRA Board of Commissioners subsequently directed LCRA staff to amend the existing urban renewal plan to incorporate the findings of the blight study and to move forward with evaluating individual building conditions within the western portion of the study area.  This plan amendment will provide a more in depth analysis of the western portion of the study area... block by block, and building by building. After the specific conditions of the buildings are known, the urban renewal plan will be updated with realistic land use scenarios that will promote revitalization. Such scenarios will include recommendations on land use, as well as building preservation and removal.  While the City of Jefferson Comprehensive Plan and Central East Side Plan promote preservation of historic buildings in the East Capitol Avenue area, there is also a realization that some buildings may be in such poor condition as to require removal. The revitalization plan may also include redevelopment scenarios, for those parcels where rehabilitation/repair is deemed unfeasible.
