5th and Stanford: Zoning Thank You!

Thank you to Cory Jobe, the Ward 6 Alderman,ICON and Harvard  Park Neighborhood Association for great teamwork in defeating the request for a zoning variance to build a packaged liquor store at 5th and Stanford!” Special thanks to the City Council members who voted ‘No” and Bill Bretz for eloquent testimony on behalf of the neighbors!

This property is located at a major crossroads and gateway to Springfield.  The business located here could welcome visitors and potential residents with a positive representation of the City. We encourage the City, realtors and developers to consider the possibilities inherent in this location and to work actively to attract a business worthy of it.
