In 2021, the Cities of Festus and Crystal City in Missouri were selected to participate in the Great Streets Initiative to envision a bold but attainable future for the Main to Mississippi corridor – uniting two cities with common purpose while respecting and building on their individual identities.
The M2M (Main to Mississippi) represents a joint venture of these two cities to create a unique business environment with new business opportunities, build a destination for both community residents and the South Metropolitan area, improve infrastructure, and capitalize on the history and stories of the Twin Cities.
The M2M Plan has the flexibility to adapt over time to changes and individual actions without losing sight of its long-term vision – using Great Streets principles to create a great place for Crystal City, Festus, and the surrounding region.
