OurGalloway_Logo-03We want to hear from you!
Take the survey now.

The City of Springfield is seeking input from stakeholders in the Galloway/Lone Pine corridor (residents, property owners, business owners, Ozark Greenways, the City’s departments of Public Works, Environmental Services Planning and Development; and the Springfield-Greene County Park Board) to gather input in the form of public meetings and surveys for the future development of the Galloway/Lone Pine area.

This input will be used by City Planning and Development staff to create recommendations to present to City Council in late summer 2019.

Background

In 2014, Springfield City Council adopted a blight study and redevelopment plan for the area north of East Lacuna Street and south to East Republic Road along the 3400 to 4100 blocks of South Lone Pine. Since then, development along the Lone Pine corridor from Battlefield to Republic Road has intensified. The unique topography of the area, along with increased retail and residential multifamily development has brought to light a variety of development issues.

After meeting with interested parties last fall, Zone 4 Councilman Matthew Simpson in requested a resolution for an administrative delay for rezoning and lot combinations in the Lone Pine corridor so that City staff could gather input and develop recommendations. The resolution was passed in November 2018. The 270-day development moratorium expires Aug. 2.

Goals

  • Determine the nature of the issues and consider options for the area and guidelines for growth and development to address issues in a manner to assure responsible and viable development taking into consideration the various interests involved.
  • Obtain stakeholder input on elements to preserve or enhance and the development concerns.
  • Obtain stakeholder input on their vision for the area and potential remedies including design options deemed compatible with the nature of the area.
