Comprehensive Plan Map Clarification Project

We are seeking community members, current and future property owners, people who do business with the City, and people with diverse perspectives like you to serve on our Project Advisory Committee (PAC) to provide feedback and advice to help guide the project. We’ll be creating a property-specific Comprehensive Plan Map that will add greater certainty to Springfield’s plan designations, which are general land use types. This project’s aim is to clarify, not revisit or reimagine, existing plan designations. It will improve map information and increase confidence in the land use process.

The PAC is expected to meet 2-5 times (for 1.5 to 2 hours) over the estimated 1.5-year duration of the project. PAC meetings will occur virtually unless otherwise scheduled based on group interest. Applications are being accepted until 5 pm on Tuesday, May 3. The recruitment may remain open as needed, but meetings are estimated to begin early summer 2022.

How do I apply? The application form plus Frequently Asked Questions and more details are available on the project website –
