Springfield prepares to weigh in on downtown revitalization

The Springfield Select Board is taking its fight against blight to town meeting voters.    


  1. Think of this as a possibility. Invite about 200 Syrian refugees to come to SF. They can fix up the old J&L and Bryant buildings for housing. Then, I am sure, they would be happy to help revitalize any part of town. They are hard workers and good people. And with good ideas. Win win for all.

    1. Have you actually SEEN the J&L? There's no rehabbing that pile of bricks! Besides, there's already enough unemployed unskilled labor around here without bringing more in. (You will, of course, have to PAY them.) Here's a better idea; turn the buildings that AREN'T crumbling into the ground into moderately priced condos, and sell them to people with money, education, and talent! THAT'S a win-win!


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