The City of Springfield announced Mayor Misty Buscher’s groundbreaking flagship initiative, ‘BUILD Springfield’ (Beautification, Unity, Innovation, Leadership, and Development), aimed at fostering community growth, development, and focused improvement of blighted areas and public safety in Springfield's underserved neighborhoods. This transformative program launched on October 7, 2023, marking a significant step towards creating a healthier, safer, and vibrant Springfield.

A holistic community-focused program, BUILD Springfield is strategically designed to positively impact Springfield's neighborhoods and residents by leveraging non-traditional, innovative approaches to improve the quality of life in distressed areas. This program is Mayor Buscher's and the City of Springfield's proactive approach to focused delivery of resources for Springfield's neighborhoods in need. Springfield citizens and organizations are able to collaboratively become an essential force in improving and maintaining the integrity of our City by working with their local government.



"BUILD Springfield encapsulates the City’s proactive approach to addressing the unique needs of our neighborhoods. We are dedicated to collaborating with our citizens, local agencies, and organizations to create a lasting impact toward community development and neighborhood improvement."
