Forward SGF Workshop – March 22, 2022

City Council was provided an update on the City’s Forward SGF Comprehensive Plan on March 22 at the Springfield Art Museum.

The City began the Comprehensive Planning process in June 2019. It was estimated to take approximately two years to complete, however the pandemic set the process back about a year, according to Principal Planner and Forward SGF project manager Randall Whitman.

“Forward SGF is dependent on a structured flow of information, organized around key planning elements that shape community growth that also speak to community priorities,” Whitman said. “Forward SGF revolves around the guiding principle of creating quality of placeQuality of place can be easily defined as the creation of a desirable and economically vibrant city to live, work and play.”
