July 27, 2011 – In collaboration with the DevelopSpringfield and Springfield Redevelopment Authority’s Public/Private Partnership, the Rebuild Springfield Advisory Committee will be holding a Listening Tour during the month of August to hear from homeowners, residents and businesses about how they envision their neighborhoods to be rebuilt.  This is a unique opportunity to improve upon the past and preserve the vital components of each neighborhood. 

The tour is part of the overall Master Plan process and the Advisory Committee wants to ensure input has been solicited from each neighborhood in order to share it with the consulting firm that is ultimately chosen to prepare a master plan.  Each neighborhood affected by the tornado is unique and has individual characteristics that should be preserved. 

The Advisory Committee realizes that an effective Master Plan must reflect the voices of the people and businesses that reside in each neighborhood.  These meetings are an opportunity to ensure that everyone is part of the rebuilding process.

The tours are scheduled as follows:

August 2nd       6:00 – 8:00 p.m.          Milton Bradley School                        22 Mulberry Street
August 5th       6:00 – 8:00 p.m.          JC Williams Comm. Center                116 Florence Street
August 11th     6:00 – 8:00 p.m.          Greenleaf Comm. Center                    1188 ½ Parker Street
August 16th     6:00 – 8:00 p.m.          Holy Cross Church                             221 Plumtree Road
