CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. -- A project that's proved successful in Cape Girardeau continues to attract quite a bit of attention from home owners. It involves a facelift for certain neighborhoods on the Southside. Target areas include homes on South Pacific, South Hanover, Good Hope and Bloomfield.
Henry and Lisa never imagined the first home they bought would need so much work. Still, after hundreds of hours knocking down walls and putting in tile floors, the couple call it a labor of love. It's nowhere close to being finished, but Henry says a little help from the city went a long way.
"If you're going to put extra time into it, you're going to take care of it," Lisa adds. That's exactly the attitude city leaders say they hoped to see.
