April 17, 2023 : Draft 1 of Springfield’s Comprehensive Plan Map is Ready!
Over the second half of 2022, Springfield’s Comprehensive Plan Map Clarification project team performed detailed property research and met numerous times with the project’s advisory groups, the Project Advisory Committee (PAC) and Technical Resource Group (TRG), refining and revising efforts in the process. A summary of those discussions can be found on this page under Project Documents & Resources. In Spring 2023, the project team completed a first draft of Springfield’s Comprehensive Plan Map and shared the draft for community review and sought feedback through an online comment form and in-person open house that was held on May 4.
The map is available as both a PDF map as well as a web-based, interactive map (also linked below). These two map options are similar, but they present information slightly differently with the PDF being a more simplified, illustrative map while the web map shows more detail. Our goal is to make both available to use and easy to access online and at City Hall once the final versions are complete later this year. Finally, the team has prepared an interactive and engaging project storyboard for community members and anyone interested in the project to gain a quick understanding for the need, process, and benefits of this project.
