Missouri Department of Natural Resources
Brownfields/Voluntary Cleanup Program (BVCP)
P.O. Box 176
Jefferson City, MO 65102-0176
Contact: Catherine Jones
The Missouri Department of Natural Resources’ Brownfields/Voluntary Cleanup Program (BVCP), under a Cooperative Agreement with the U.S. EPA, conducts site-specific environmental assessments of Brownfield properties for public entities such as cities, counties and quasi-governmental entities, as well as for not-for-profit organizations. Properties that are privately owned are only eligible if an application is sent on behalf of the private owner by an eligible entity. The assessments are provided at no cost to the property owner or the eligible applicant. An assessment provides valuable information that can aid in making decisions regarding the future of the property.
Often, local governments acquire contaminated properties through foreclosure for back taxes, land donations, or may own property they would like to sell for redevelopment purposes. These entities sometimes have difficulty finding adequate funding to pay for environmental assessments (All Appropriate Inquiries, Phase I and Phase II Assessments) prior to redevelopment. Often, it is the unknown environmental condition of the privately or publically held property that dissuades developers. The assessments provide the information necessary to move forward with planning, and redevelopment of the property.
The BVCP also offers state oversight for the voluntary cleanup of properties contaminated with hazardous substances. The BVCP is a non-enforcement program designed to help property owners, business operators, or prospective buyers. It provides “closure” when the property is cleaned up to approved specifications and standards acceptable to the state. This “closure” can greatly reduce the environmental liability associated with such properties, thereby facilitating property transactions. (08/16)

Celebrations Restaurant and Bar, James & Pat Allen
615 Bellevue | Cape Girardeau, Missouri 63701
Phone: 573-334-8330 | Fax: 573-334-6722
Celebrations is a fine dining restaurant established in 1997 by James and Pat Allen, in the historic downtown area of Cape Girardeau, Missouri.
Our menu is inspired by the fresh, seasonal products that we have flown-in from all parts of the country, as well as our excellent local growers. We believe that using the freshest products available is the foundation for great food.
We strive to use only the finest ingredients, grown in their native and adapted soils. Our menu is primarily composed of seasonal ingredients year round, and achieved through our partnership with a large network of small-scale farms and fisheries. These farmers provide most of our meat, dairy, produce, and seafood. Because of this network, our culinary options remain creative, delicious, and reliant throughout every season.
We emphasize personable service in a relaxed, elegant atmosphere in a very unique building; parts of which date back to the 1850’s. Weather permitting, we also offer outdoor dining in our enclosed courtyard. We have a full service bar with a wide range of fine wines and liquors. Dining is also available for groups of up to 75 people in our studio.
Our award-winning wine list, winner of Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence, surveys most wine regions of the world with a particular emphasis on the small, artisan producers of California and the Pacific Northwest. All of our wines may be enjoyed in Riedel glassware. (08/16)
Drury Southwest
101 Farrar Drive Cape Girardeau MO 63701
Phone: 573-33v5-3134 | Fax: 573-335-5125
Bob Drury and his brothers grew up working long hours on the family farm back in the 1940’s. Their father, Lambert Drury, introduced his sons to the construction industry by forming a tile and plaster company to help supplement the family farm income. The business began by taking on small jobs. Bob and some of his brothers eventually took leave of plastering to serve loyally in the United States Army. Upon returning from serving his country, Bob married his high school sweetheart, Anna Rose Heisserer, who grew up on a neighboring farm outside of Kelso, MO.
Bob and his brothers helped energize the Drury family business, making it successful and respected throughout Southeast Missouri and neighboring states. Ann raised their three children, Kathy, Rick and Julie, as well as becoming a real “shaker and mover” of the Volunteer Department of St. Francis Hospital.
In the 1960’s, the Drury family business expanded and they built their first hotel in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. Bob and his brothers enjoyed the challenges and rewards that the hotel industry presented, so in 1974 they formed another company known today as Drury Hotels.
Drury Hotels continues to be 100% family owned and operated. For 40 years, Drury has continued to stick with the basics that helped the company grow from a small plastering business in the Bootheel of Missouri to a successful, growing system of over 130 hotels in 20 states.
Bob Drury was a very innovative man, and both his drive and innovation are reflected in the number of areas our company is focused. We not only construct and develop hotels nationally; we’re also a leader in commercial real estate development and management as well as many other businesses. Bob and Anna Drury have both passed away but their legacy carries on with the hotel chain, office buildings and developments that bear their imprint and influence. More importantly, the leadership, mentoring and hard work that emboldened all around Bob to excel will long be remembered. Bob laid a very strong foundation to effectively “keep the train rolling down the tracks,” and that’s precisely what the Drury Southwest Board of Directors and Officers will do to honor Bob’s legacy.
