The Route 66 Association of Missouri has hired an organization Great River Associates to develop a Corridor Management Plan for the Rt. 66 Corridor.
The organization plans regional meetings to discuss preservation, protection, and enhancement along Rt. 66. The Cuba meeting will be held at Recklein Audiotorium on Thursday, Feb. 11 at 6:00.
