At an open house to be held at the Hartness House on November 10th, community members can look over sketch plans and give their input on ideas to improve Main Street. The Master Plan addresses:

  •  River Access 
  •  Public Space Improvements 
  •  Reuse Concepts for Selected Sites 
  •  Pedestrian and Bicycle Improvements 
  •  Gateway Improvements 

The Main Street Meet Up will be held at the Hartness House from 5:00 pm to 7:30 pm. There will be a presentation at 6:00 by Greenman-Pedersen Inc., the consultants working on the plans, but the event is intended to be an informal, drop-in gathering that allows community members to speak with the design team.

“For this project we really wanted to get input from a broad audience, so we have structured the Main Street Meet Up as a fun and informal community event. We hope to attract a large number of residents and the business community to talk about ideas for improvements downtown.” said Tom Yennerell, Springfield Town Manager.

In addition to the Main Street master planning project, other community organizations will also be present to discuss their on-going work in downtown Springfield. These include:

  • Springfield Regional Development Corporation 
  • Springfield Regional Chamber of Commerce  
  • Springfield Housing Authority 
  • Springfield Energy Committee 
  • Springfield on the Move 
  • Springfield Garden Club
