Tri-State Development Summit

A summit that brings together business, government and community leaders from throughout the tri-state region reached a milestone on Wednesday, May 7.

Three events scheduled for this week for focusing on housing in the tri-state region.

The Tri-State Development Summit has formed in 1996, following the historic Flood of 1993. 

The organization brings together communities leaders from several dozen counties in west-central Illinois, southeast Iowa, and northeast Missouri.

One of its standing committees focuses on housing needs in the tri-state region.  To assist in its efforts, a special day-long summit was held on the campus of Culver-Stockton College in Canton, Missouri.
