Land Clearance for Redevelopment Advisory Committee

The mission of the LCRA Advisory Committee is to identify areas of our community within which there exist blighted, unsanitary or deteriorated conditions which constitute a growing threat to the public health, safety, morals and welfare of the City of Sikeston; and to work diligently with the resources provided by the federal, state and local governments, as well as such resources which the LCRA may access in the private sector, for the elimination and eradication of such conditions through the rehabilitation and redevelopment of such areas.
