Gateway Entrance A Block from Bel-Aire Motel Attempts to Polish Initial Appearances


Springfield city officials are expressing pride at a new 'gateway entrance" into the city... and a little embarrassment at what lies just beyond it.

 

The "gateway" on South Sixth heading into downtown boasts an electronic information sign and refurbished green space.

 

A mix of public and private dollars paid for the spruced-up area, which officials hope will create a more welcoming atmosphere for visitors heading into the city. But in the next block or two are eyesores like the Bel-Aire Motel.

 

Ward 6 Alderman Cory Jobe says the city will keep up the pressure on property owners to clean up problem areas.
