New improvements coming to Cape Girardeau’s Osage Centre and Ranney Park
CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KBSI) – The city of Cape Girardeau approved funds for new improvements for the Osage Centre and Ranney Park.
The money came from the remaining ARPA funds with $100,000 for the exterior painting of Osage Centre and $160,000 for improvements and upgrades to Ranney park. The city of cape Girardeau Park Director Doug Gannon says these upgrades are needed.
“You know, this just needed maintenance that we see that after we complete this. It’ll carry us through for several more years to come that they won’t have to be any additional funding allocated for that,” Gannon said. “The plan is to improve parks all over the community, so this is a park for that part of the community that deserves to have a nice park to use, and we just want to provide that for them.”
