Here in Springfield, we want to be a welcoming community for all people to live through every phase of life. This includes having a variety of housing options at different price points that provide residents the opportunity to either rent or own a home depending on what fits their budget and needs. In recent years, the cost of housing has skyrocketed causing an increasingly larger gap between residents on a fixed or low-income and affordable housing. These Springfield residents include seniors, families with children, and young people. The City of Springfield has been exploring opportunities to help reduce that gap and keep our community affordable to live and grow in. To help achieve this overall goal, the City has had preliminary discussions with St Vincent de Paul of Lane County about identifying suitable property development of an affordable manufactured home park.
