​WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A NEIGHBORHOOD SERVICE AREA AND A REGISTERED NEIGHBORHOOD ORGANIZATION?

Each neighborhood service area is based on the criteria established in the Neighborhoods Element of the Vision 20/20 process which defines a neighborhood as "being approximately one square mile in size ... with major geographic boundaries such as arterial roads, railroads, or major non-residential areas that are supported by a mixture of housing types, retail services, and parks/open space within walking distance of residential areas that contain 3,000 to 6,000 residents." Springfield is comprised of 34 neighborhood service areas.

Each neighborhood organization(s) that include approximately one half of the land area included in the service area, has elected officers, adopted by-laws, etc. and that are registered with the city shall be considered a Registered Neighborhood Organization. Each Registered Neighborhood Organization is included in the registry along with its applicable Neighborhood Service Area. As of 2019, 22 neighborhood organizations are registered with the City of Springfield.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF BECOMING A REGISTERED NEIGHBORHOOD ORGANIZATION?

Registered neighborhoods receive the following from the City’s Planning & Neighborhoods Office:

  • Mailing labels with a master copy of all local addresses (and property owners addresses) that fall within the boundaries of the neighborhood.
  • Service request data: a report is issued monthly and contains all citizens’ code complaints targeting areas within the neighborhood boundaries.
  • Area zoning notices: registered neighborhoods are notified of any zoning requests and updates within the area. This information is provided by the Development Review Office of the City’s Planning Department.
  • Neighborhood programs information: notices of neighborhood programs that the City or participating organizations offer.

Neighborhoods Office staff can provide residents with many resources to make neighborhood associations successful. Is your neighborhood interested in registering with the City? Contact Senior Planner Alana Owen with any questions at 417-864-1831 or aowen@springfieldmo.gov.
