At the last meeting there was a call for interested parties to participate in a visioning statement for Downtown Springfield. Thank you to those that participated in the exercise and if you were unable to lend your voice, we still want to hear from you! Below is the proposed visioning statement, we would very much like to hear feedback at this meeting. If you are unable to attend but want to offer feedback, please don’t hesitate to reach out either by phone or email.
Proposed Downtown Springfield Visioning Statement-April 2018:
“Downtown Springfield is a vibrant community, alive with the traditions that built it. Builders and creatives craft the table you sit at, the art that inspires, and the food and drink you share with friends. Our historic Main Street, reminding us of the of the determined and visionary settlers who chose this land, is the centerpiece of our community fabric, where neighbors come together and visitors are warmly welcomed. The downtown economy thrives with bold entrepreneurial spirit that embraces and celebrates our heritage, the richness of our natural environment, and memorable experiences.
Hand crafted. Neighborly. Authentic. Discover Downtown Springfield.”
