Housing Study Community Meeting #2

This June 8, 2023 meeting provided an opportunity for residents to learn the results of APD's "windshield survey" of the city, which  included details about Springfield's housing conditions, age and values; vacant buildings and lots; a brief characterization of neighborhoods in each Council zone; the gap between housing/rental prices and incomes; and different types of housing. Residents participated in a mapping exercise and voted on preferred strategies for neighborhood revitalization.
