(Festus, Crystal City) There will be several upcoming public events for residents to meet with and voice their concerns for the Great Streets Initiative within the East-West Gateway Council of Governments. The project M2M, which stands for Main to Mississippi is set up to plan for improvements along Festus Main Street, Bailey Road, and Mississippi Avenue in Festus and Crystal City.
