SPRINGFIELD, OH (Oct. 3, 2019) — Sixteen Neighborhood streets were paved in the 2019 Neighborhood Street Program, bringing a total of 27 streets repaired since the initiative’s launch last year.
The 2019 Neighborhood Street Program is wrapping up, with only Red Coach Drive to complete. The Neighborhood Street Program was started in 2018 as part of a commitment made to Springfield voters with the passage of a tax levy two years ago.
“In 2017, we told the people of Springfield that the City would commit a minimum of $2 million toward improving neighborhood streets,” said Springfield City Manager Bryan Heck. “We are dedicated to the task of doing all we can to better the lives of our residents by improving neighborhoods and maintaining our infrastructure.”
Following the completion of the 2018 Neighborhood Street Program, the city held four public forums to hear input from residents about future projects. That input helped city officials decide which streets would be included for 2020 through 2022, said Heck.
