Independent Coalition for Our Neighborhoods

Springfield Ward plan meetings start Nov 2 – attend yours – give your input!

Your input is needed! City of Springfield Ward Plan meetings are open forums where citizens are welcome to share their priorities. Topics could include: economic development, infrastructure, recreation, public safety, utilities, community resources, transportation, housing development, and beautification. Mayor Jim Langfelder said the process will help the City create a cohesive strategy for Springfield. The schedule is below, along with links to help you identify your ward.

We encourage residents of older neighborhoods to attend and discuss inner city issues that are critical to the health of Springfield’s core and its surrounding neighborhoods.
