Springfield Phase I
The City of Springfield, Ohio hired Urban Fast Forward and CUDA Studio to develop a strategic revitalization plan for the neighborhood just south of its downtown. The neighborhood has considerable historic buildings that were threatened by decline and demolition.
The consulting team conducted extensive community engagement to engage long-time resident stakeholders, both eager and skeptical in a year long conversation to build a vision for the neighborhood. The team developed a set of recommendations that range from a tactical Phase 0 step to long-term capacity building for incremental and organic neighborhood revival.
The community and our team are continuing our work with the city on a second phase which includes an implementation of the steps recommended in the first phase report.
