Commercial Club of Springfield invites the community to a brief overview of projects proposed for the renewal of Springfield’s Level Property Tax, followed by a presentation by Drury architecture students at their second public forum to develop concepts for the Historic Commercial Street district. 

Join C-Street neighbors Tuesday, October 3, 2017 from 6 to 8pm at the Savoy Ballroom, 223 East Commercial to participate in this exciting process. Nine fourth-year Hammons School of Architecture students will focus on creative concepts for specific parts of the Historic Commercial Street District. The students are tasked with developing concepts for improvements to Blaine Street, Frisco Lane and its connections to C-Street and the C-Street City Market, enhanced entryways to the district from the south, parking solutions on the south side of the district and alleyway beautification. 

Mary Collette, President of Commercial Club of Springfield commented:

“This is a very exciting time for Historic C-Street; we believe this project is extremely timely as it will will provide us with concepts for projects that may be implemented sooner rather than later.”

Jay Garrott, Director of the Center for Community Studies says: “These types of projects give our students invaluable community context and feedback that provides a real-world experience not found in most classroom projects.”
