COLUMBIA — City staff remained tight-lipped Wednesday afternoon about an important economic development in Columbia that will be announced Thursday morning.

A news release from the city said the announcement will reveal "a medical science company's multi-million dollar development plan in Columbia."

Civic Relations Officer Toni Messina declined to comment on the specifics of the announcement Wednesday afternoon.

Regional Economic Development Inc., a semi-public company whose goal is facilitating economic development in Columbia, issued a news release Wednesday inviting the public to the announcement.

The director of the Missouri Department of Economic Development, local leaders, officials from a medical science company and representatives from MU and REDI will attend the 11 a.m. news conference Thursday, according to the news releases.

The news conference will be at the Daniel Boone City Building.

Supervising editor is Elise Schmelzer.
