MEDIA ALERT: City Council to view proposed Renew Jordan Creek Master Plan today at 11:30 a.m.

MEDIA ALERT

After months of public engagement and stakeholder work sessions, City staff and a planning and design consultant team from Olsson, will unveil a proposed master plan for the Renew Jordan Creek effort downtown at a City Council Lunch Workshop at 11:30 a.m., Tuesday, June 1 in City Council Chambers.

The Renew Jordan Creek effort intends to “daylight” portions of the creek and bring it to the surface, helping to reduce flooding and improve water quality. Renew Jordan Creek is also viewed as an opportunity to provide an outdoor urban amenity and serve as a catalyst for further redevelopment along the creek’s path through downtown Springfield.

The City previously identified the phase one or Primary Project Site, comprising two large blocks of the creek, bordered on the east by Boonville Avenue and Water Street on the south, Main Avenue on the west, and Mill Street on the north. The master plan seeks to envision a design concept unifying the primary site with possible future enhancements to nearby Founders Park and a newly acquired property located at 404 N. Jefferson Avenue (the former Meek’s Lumber Yard and facility).

Much of the master plan area is within the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) floodplain within downtown Springfield, so revising the use of space is crucial to remediate flooding.
