the economic and social vitality of Missouri's
communities is a priority for state government;
economic strength of central downtown and revitalization
districts throughout the state is important
to the economic vitality of the state as a whole;
placement of state buildings and facilities
in the central downtown or revitalization districts
of urban cores, suburbs, cities, towns and rural
communities can improve their economic health
and populaiton stability.
I, Bob Holden, Governor of the State of Missouri,
by virtue of the authority vested in me by the
Constitution and Laws of the State of Missouri,
do hereby issue the following order:
(a) State buildings and facilities,
whether state-owned or leased, shall be located
in central downtown or revitalization districts
in urban cores, suburbs, cities, towns and rural
communities throughout the state when consistent
with public service requirements and with historic
preservation efforts and when economically prudent.
(b) The Office of Administration shall establish
policies and procedures to implement this
order. Such policies and procedures shall
be compatible with current authority, including
existing state procurement statutes and regulations.
The policies and procedures shall also be
consistent with laws and regulations that
are designed to ensure access to public facilities
for people with disablilities, to protect
human health and safety and the environment,
and to promote energy efficiency. These policies
and procedures should impose the least burden
on the public and provide the maximum benefit
to society while encouraging the revitalization
of Missouri's downtown centers and efficient
and coordinated growth outside downtown centers.
All other state agencies and departments shall
assist in this implementation upon the request
of the Office of Administration.
|| IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have
hereunto set my hand and caused to be affixed
the Great Seal of the State of Missouri,
in the City of Jefferson, on this 20th day
of December 2001.
