Springfield adds to its unsafe building hit list

The Springfield Select Board has expanded its original 2013 list to include properties on Furnace Street, Park Street and Valley Street.


  1. they want to tear down people's house's,but 1 of the biggest eyesore's in town is owned by the town and we're gonna dump a bunch of money into it,that would be the community center,that place has been a dump for years,time to tear that down

    1. Shining example of literacy thanks to Springfield's school system. This is what $16K per year gets you. But if your future is bottling beer, packing lettuce or toothpaste, or working on a mindless assembly line, why even attend school past 8th grade?

    2. What are you talking about bottling beer?

  2. Sorry to keep sounding like a broken record, but I am appalled that the Select Board is doing nothing concerning the property on Tarbell Road in N. Springfield. While I applaud the Select Board for giving the new owners a reasonable amount of time to start renovating the property, the details surrounding it need to be looked into. As I have previously stated on this forum, I do not find it credible that neither the Bank nor the realtor involved in the sale were unaware that this property was on the town's condemned list. Assuming that the buyer was never made aware of this, someone needs to held accountable and stiff financial penalties should be assessed.

    1. Caveat emptor. This is exactly the reason an attorney is used in real estate transfers. Also a good example why poverty exists. Some fools make chronically bad choices and no amount of charity will resolve their plight. Tear the eyesore down so the rest of the community benefits. Do it now.


Please keep your comments polite and on-topic. No profanity
