Missouri Approves Aid for Cardinals' Ballpark Village

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) A state board has approved financial aid for a newly expanded project to build condominiums, shops, restaurants and office space near the St. Louis Cardinals ballpark.

The Missouri Development Finance Board is backing a $387 million project that will include a little less than $30 million in state aid for infrastructure improvements.

Part of the Ballpark Village is to be completed by the time the Cardinals host the Major League Baseball All-Star game in July 2009. But the rest probably won't be for several more years.

A plan considered last month by the state board would have cost about $100 million less, but it had fewer buildings and no condos.
