Springfield survey reveals residents’ wish list

A survey of downtown businesses, merchants, residents and visitors show that the biggest missing ingredient to downtown Springfield is a bakery, followed closely by a brew pub.

  1. Great ideas.
    Black River Brew,
    Finless Brown Ale
    or
    You can make a lot of dough making bread, loafing all day. :-)

  3. Executive director of Springfield On The Move, said Monday the survey was conducted by her organization. Anyone wonder why the town is failing? No? Lets conduct another survey! What Springfield needs first and foremost are some intelligent leaders instead of a brewery or bakery.

  5. More hype from Springfield on the Dole. The headline is misleading, since the article indicates that "businesses" were surveyed and not "residents". So, forty responses to a slanted survey constitutes newsworthiness? It's obvious that this is just more self-promotion from the chief dole recipient! If it isn't a survey, it's a logo. Come on Springfield, quit wasting your money on this woman and her little cottage industry of smoke and mirrors!

  6. A survey of downtown business? Odd, as I nor any other business/chamber member I know of was polled. Pointless anyhow, as CL hasn't the vaguest comprehension of what first has to be in place for a community's downtown to thrive. How are those banners working out CL? Fewer business on Main street now then before the banners were hung two years ago.

    1. Hey, hey, hey, cool it. Springfield was re-invented. This drug trade did not exist before those banners went up. So there.

  7. Ironic that such a "half-baked" survey would cite the need for a downtown bakery!

  8. They only survey the businesses that they know will give them the answers they want. It's like that whitewash they did with the parking problem downtown. Parking problem? We don't have a parking problem. See, we did a survey, and the survey results say we don't have a parking problem. So the rest of you can all shut up now.

  9. How about running off the scumbags who sit around causing trouble and an eyesore like the gang wannabes I saw last night draped all over the place in fromt of the library?

    1. Until Carol Lighthall figures out this issue would you ever start a business in downtown Springfield? This supposed bakery owner must be nuts to put a financial investment at risk. I wont even bother walking downtown until these thugs are gone. I dont care how good the bakery or beer is.

    4. Exactly! Springfield leaders (e.g. G.M.) prefer to pontificate to brick walls because they don't talk back. Makes "governing" much easier that way.

  10. What Springfield's downtown needs is a bulldozer.

  12. Careful, guys. You start talking heavy equipment and the town will run to Gurney Bros. with another sweetheart deal.
