The City of Springfield is asking the community to help set the vision for the upcoming Grant Avenue Parkway corridor improvement project and corridor plan. A city-wide public input survey is launching today with a series of virtual public visioning workshops scheduled throughout the month of September.
A community-wide virtual project kickoff and visioning workshop is planned for 6-7 p.m., this Thursday, Sept. 3, followed by a series of events targeting impacted neighborhoods along the corridor:
- West Central Neighborhood Workshop (Grand Street to College Street) - 6-7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 9
- Downtown Workshop – 6-7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 17
- Fassnight Neighborhood Workshop (Sunshine Street to Grand Street) – 6-7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 23.
All three virtual workshops will be livestreamed from grantavenueparkway.com and the City’s Facebook page. Workshops will be recorded and broadcast on the City’s cable channels – Mediacom channel 15.1 and 80 and AT&T Uverse channel 99 at noon on Wednesdays and 8 p.m. on Saturdays during September.
