Town, community leaders talk projects at annual meeting

A dominant theme emerged at Springfield On the Move’s (SOM) annual meeting on Monday: celebrating collaboration and cooperation across Springfield entities.



  1. But, perhaps most importantly, Lane reported on the Woolson Block Project, another focal point of the SOM meeting. While the Springfield Housing Authority (SHA) and Housing Vermont work to garner the rest of the funds for the renovation of the prominent downtown building, which will turn the bottom floor into four retail spaces and the top two floors into affordable housing...

    Another pipedream built on totally incompatible parts. No worthwhile business can survive in such close proximity to an SHA project. The usual culprits will fleece more government taxpayer money for another ultimate failure.

    1. Amen. No desirable, retail business can thrive downtown due to the underlying problem that's killed off so many retailers. As once suggested, we'll soon see bottom feeding entrepreneurs opening adult book stores, pawn shops, check cashing, tattoo and smoke shops. Look around, what's your customer base? And the solution is, not just low income, but more unemployable delinquents that have rejected all responsibilities? Insanity, pure insanity.


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