Momentum on Main Street Meet-Up & Presentation

Do you want to make a difference in downtown Springfield but are not quite sure what to do or where to start?

We’re looking for the next generation of entrepreneurs…rehabbers…and even investors. Together we can accelerate the momentum that is already happening in our neighborhood.

Even if you’ve never thought of yourself in those terms — but you care about the future of downtown — we invite you to join us for this special evening that may just kick off a world of possibilities for you!

During a fun, fast-paced presentation — with plenty of networking built in — you’ll hear from people JUST LIKE YOU who are already making a difference downtown and want to show you how can, as well.

Join us at Arlington’s for complimentary hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar. Doors open at 5:30 pm and panel will begin at 6:00 pm. Please click here to save your spot.

Thanks to Arlington’s, WMAY, Innovate Springfield, City of Springfield’s Office of Planning & Economic Development, and Lincoln Land Economic Development Corp. for partnering with Downtown Springfield Inc and our Economic Vitality Committee on this important new program. Thanks to our Economic Vitality Committee members — you guys rock!

New Business to Downtown is a Perfect Capture

A big welcome to one of Downtown’s newest business, Paparazzi Peggi Photography!!

Peggi Trees Gant is the owner and photographer of Paparazzi Peggi Photography and if you haven’t had a chance to meet her, you’re missing out! She has a personality that literally lights up the room and she can make you feel so good about yourself just by saying hello!

She is a long time local and has done work for political parties, proms, weddings, downtown events, and has been featured in Springfield Scene Magazine. She’s an amazing mother to three wonderful children and loves her family! She says that “starting small, staying consistent, and being available to her clientele” has made her business what it is today. She’s most excited to see what avenues having a studio will bring to her. You can typically find her shooting downtown for this season’s prom pictures, capturing our great neighborhood during events, or at her new studio at 427 E. Monroe!

Welcome to the Downtown Family, Peggi! We’re so excited to have your spirit!
