A candidate for Springfield mayor says it’s time to update the city’s long-range plan.
Paul Palazzolo says the current city plan was put together in the year 2000… and hasn’t had a serious review since 2007.
He says if elected he will put a team together to craft a new plan with an eye toward job creation and economic development.
But Palazzolo says he hasn’t decided yet if Springfield needs a full-time city planner. Paul O’Shea currently serves on a contractual basis as “planning and design coordinator” for the city.
