The city of Springfield is holding a virtual public meeting to solicit comments and feedback on the Grant Avenue Parkway project on Thursday, September 3rd.
The public meeting is scheduled to take place between 6 and 7 p.m..
“The Grant Avenue Parkway project and corridor plan is one of the largest undertakings of the City in decades,” city PIO Cora Scott told OI. “It is very important that we get input and involvement from a very diverse group of people and organizations about how they hope to use the corridor in the future.”
The Grant Avenue Parkway, which is planned to run from the Wonders of Wildlife National Museum and Aquarium into downtown Springfield, will be a three mile stretch of roadway that will aim to connect neighborhoods, parks, and Ozark Greenway trails.
The event will have a livestream where information will be provided by city staff regarding the various aspects of the project, with live polling taking place for citizens to give feedback.
There will be an online survey made available for those who cannot or choose not to participate in the live polls.
Questions and comments can be left on the city’s Facebook page for the event.
