A lot of work was done in 2012 to lay a foundation for the development that is happening in the district today, so you’ll find a lot of data and studies dating back to that year. Much credit goes to the City of Springfield, The Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce, and the SDAT Action Committee in assisting DSI in these endeavors.
DSI supported the creation of the online Springfield Central Business District Inventory by the SSRPC in 2012. The clickable database can be used to answer questions about particular properties, including ownership, size and use.
