  1. Where can one find a copy of that schedule; preferably on-line?

  2. Paving the streets is a good place to start. Individual properties may look bad, but that's on the owners, to a large extent. The town is responsible for the roads. If they look good, the town looks better.

    What schedule? Are you referring to the Road Maintenance Plan that the town is following with regards to the paving appropriation and budget? I am not sure whether it is posted online or not, but you can view it at the Town Office. It does not specify which roads get paved when, but it does indicate how much will need to be appropriated each year for, I believe, the next 20 years. Last year it called for $700,000.00, so there was $300,000 in the budget and $400,000 in a separate article, this year it called for $800,000 so there is $300,000 in the budget again and $500,000 in the article. Next year I believe it increases again.

  4. Springfield should be ashamed of Eureka Road, the typical band aid paving won't be enough to fix though. It needs all new drainage done with the paving and to tear up all the old paving.
    I'll definitely vote on this.
