Take the Park Central Square Survey -- The City of Springfield and Urban Districts Alliance are seeking community input for Park Central Square revitalization in downtown Springfield. Results of this survey will be added to ideas and feedback gathered during a series of workshops and information booths at community events. The goal is to use the input from the community at large and specific stakeholder groups to create preliminary designs by late October or early November. At that point, the community will be asked for additional input on the preliminary designs.
