April 12, 2012 - The City of Springfield has issued Requests for Proposals for purchase and redevelopment of three historic homes in the City’s McKnight area.
“The Law Department has been diligently pursing tax delinquent owners of blighting buildings,” said Mayor Domenic J. Sarno. “We are now looking for redevelopment proposals on three Victorian homes in the McKnight neighborhood. The City is most interested in proposals where the end use is an owner-occupied home.”
