ALTON—Alton is receiving multiple inquiries about development opportunities, according to City Manager Jorge Arcaute. So much so that Assistant City Manager Steve Peña has been promoted to handle development for the city full time.
Peña has been named the CEO for the City of Alton Development Corporation. For the last seven years, Peña has worked as the general manager for the CADC.
“The city manager is creating a very sustainable team to move forward to the next level for Alton,” Peña said. “Part of that was to put me into the economic development realm, full time. So far, this is what we’ve gotten on a part time basis.”
