About

This website is home to a developing plan for the future of streetcars in downtown Springfield, Missouri. With downtown revitalization important for the success of the Expo Center, historic preservation, and the greater success of the city as a whole, the implementation of a streetcar line in the center city area would secure development investment in the district. The city’s recent strategic planning initiative and the convention competitiveness report provide the catalyst for citizen action on getting the people of Springfield to consider the often overlooked option of streetcars and the development they have a proven track record of bringing to the areas they serve.

    Excellent idea. I am a native of Springfield and have always been interested in the streetcars. I once saw a map at City Utilities (old car barn) with all the passing tracks included and would love to see it again. Hope your plan to revive them succeeds!
