The Right Sized Community?
For many it’s somewhere between a town and a city. It’s a place that has cultural offerings like theaters, a performing arts center and a summer music festival. It provides strong schools, community colleges and universities. It offers recreational facilities like an ice rink, waterpark and a kayaking venue.
Springfield is just such a community — large enough to support abundant city amenities, but small enough so that all can work together and allow Springfield to be stronger than the sum of its parts.
