Kidzeum Organizers Seeking More TIF Money Than What's Offered

The organizers of the planned downtown Kidzeum are still pressing for a bigger financial commitment from the city of Springfield.


City officials have recommended awarding $675,000 in downtown TIF district funding toward the cost of renovating a building on East Adams to house the children’s museum.


But that’s $300,000 less than museum organizers had requested.


Kidzeum board president Rachael Thompson says the city will see a big return on investment once the museum is up and running, but says it needs more money now to make that happen.
