Motor Inn Developer Updates Aldermen


After a long debate last week during the committee of the whole, Springfield aldermen say they want to be kept in the loop of any land use changes for projects using Tax Increment Finance funds.

 

Aldermen and Mayor Mike Houston decided to allow the current agreement with Barker Real Estate to move forward on renovating the Motor Inn.

 

The original plan was to raze the building and turn the area into four different residential units, but after several circumstances arose, including encouragement from the Historic Preservation Society to renovate the current structure into retail space to keep with the historic nature of the building.

 

The new plan, as presented Tuesday by Barker Realty, would make several different storefronts on Monroe and 4th with parking space in the rear of the building.
