JEFFERSON CITY, MO, JULY 24, 2020 – Representatives from Missouri State Parks invite the public to attend an informational meeting at First Missouri State Capitol State Historic Site at 1 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 8. The meeting begins at 1 p.m. in the visitor center of the First Missouri State Capitol State Historic Site. Before and after the meeting, staff will offer tours of the first state capitol building.

Representatives from the historic site will be present to provide information about the site and to answer questions. The public is invited to share comments and ask questions about the historic site and its operations.

Input from the public is important to Missouri State Parks. These informational meetings, which are being held in all state parks and historic sites, help create two-way communication with the public. The meetings give staff the opportunity to let people know the current status and future plans for the park or historic site, and they offer visitors the opportunity to comment on the facilities.
