Attractiveness was not a component of the riverfront for most of Hannibal's history," George Walley, executive director of the Northeast Missouri Economic Development Council, said. "It was commerce and the way the community grew." The riverfront housed an even more robust rail terminal than what currently exists, grain elevators and a power plant. The designation of the northern Mississippi as a marine highway may have an impact on commerce along the river. Walley said he takes at least one call a year from someone who wants "to bring an industrial project to the riverfront. Most of them are things that need to be unloaded, like a scrap metal yard." Page 2 of 2 - But with the land prone to the rising waters of the Mississippi River, Walley said a return to the industrial riverfront of years past isn't likely.
Walley warns, however, that predicating the entire riverfront's redevelopment around one business may not serve Hannibal in the long run. "There's no guarantee Viking will come. You want to design the improvements for many generations to enjoy whether any boat ever comes again," he said. "We still have the challenge of repairing what we've got and maybe making some improvements," he continued.

George Walley, executive director of the NMEDC, voiced support for the BPW's decision to cut the rates of its largest customers, suggesting that action would benefit all BPW electric ratepayers in the long run. "A strong industrial base keeps rates stable for the rest of us," he said.

"There are currently 24 or so certified sites which is still an exclusive club compared to the hundreds of properties around the state," said George Walley, executive director of the Northeast Missouri Economic Development Council.
"In short, the message to the developer is this is truly a shovel-ready site and the timeline for a client to be in production is as short as it can be," added Walley. If the goal of being designated a certified site is achieved, a secondary goal would also be reached. "In our business of marketing the property and community, site consultants make clear to us that their job is more a task of elimination than selection. The goal is to make the short list for a site visit," said Walley. "In face-to-face interviews with these consultants, I have heard them say that they will often keep a community on the list, even if all the requirements of the project are not quite perfect, if the site is certified because they know that certification means the best project timeline and the least unknown information." Application process The process of preparing the certified site application, which is due by the end of October, began in August 2013 as part of a scope of work included in a contract the BPW hired Klingner & Associates to perform. Page 2 of 2 - "George Walley originally recommended we go through this site certification exercise," said Stevenson.
Walley is more bullish in his optimism regarding the application's chances in Jefferson City. "I have no doubt that it will be approved," he said.
