Springfield Hopes To Acquire State Owned City Block


Springfield aldermen will vote this week on a proposal to acquire a full downtown city block, just north of the Governor’s Mansion.

 

The state currently owns the land, which is occupied by a surface parking lot which a city resolution describes as “unsightly.” Under the resolution, the state would declare the land as “surplus property,” opening the door for the city to acquire it.

 

The city would then work with developers to turn the land into residential property aimed at people who work in the downtown area. The measure will be considered during a special city council meeting Tuesday night.
