    • Mr. Kimbel –
      If you’re referring to the Kage School pictured with the blog, the school was added to the City’s 2013 Endangered Buildings List. The list is simply compiled as a way to recognize the community importance and history of said buildings, not as a list of which buildings will be torn down. We’d love to see every nominated building saved! If you have questions, please contact Development Services at 573-339-6327. Thanks for reading.
