Save that Building! 2016 Cape Girardeau Endangered Buildings List Nominations Due March 11

The Cape Girardeau Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) is  accepting nominations for its 2016 Endangered Buildings List through Friday, March 11.
The HPC created the list in 2012 to promote awareness of historic buildings in the community that are “at risk” of being lost due to pending demolition, physical deterioration, and/or long term vacancy. Former lists are linked below.
Nominations may be submitted through the City’s website, by email to, or by mail to: Cape Girardeau Historic Preservation Commission, 401 Independence Street, Cape Girardeau, Missouri 63703.
Those submitting a nomination are asked to include a statement explaining the building’s historic significance, why they believe it is endangered, suggestions for what measures could be taken to save it, and a photo of the building in its current condition. The HPC will review the nominations on March 30, 2016 and finalize the list on April 20, 2016.  Both meetings are open to the public and will be held in the Council Chambers at City Hall, 401 Independence Street (subject to change).
