HANNIBAL, Mo. (AP) - The area near the Mississippi River in historic Hannibal may soon be taking on a different look.

Officials with the northeast Missouri town’s Parks and Recreation Department say frequent flooding and simple aging have taken a toll on the riverfront where Samuel Clemens played as a child. A task force has been appointed to come up with a renovation plan.

The Riverfront Task Force was created last week, though the project isn’t expected to be completed for several years. The task force will consider what to do about parks near the river, the flood levee, a marina and the riverboat docking areas.
