Volunteers needed for Main Street light project

Springfield on the Move (SOM) continues its Main Street light pole project. Following up last fall’s initiative, a hard-working group completed the base coats recently, and SOM volunteers will begin the finish coat soon.    


  1. Thank you!

  2. Efforts of this nature are well meaning, and the people involved are committed. Unfortunately I believe these kind of activities, including the new signage, and the bricked sidewalks do very little to entice businesses to locate here. I wonder if we'd be better off if we used all the resources going into window dressing to provide tax breaks, or other financial based incentives? The property tax rate is also a huge turn off for businesses,and potential home buyers.

  3. Just curious, while volunteers paint the light poles, what have the DPW staff been working on?


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