Mark Twain becomes Springfield’s 22nd registered neighborhood


The City of Springfield welcomes Mark Twain Neighborhood Association as its 22nd registered neighborhood.

This designation means that a neighborhood association has provided the City with proof that the organization is active; and, that it has made efforts to involve residents and property owners from throughout the neighborhood in activities.

Registered neighborhoods receive the following from the City’s Planning & Neighborhoods Office:

    • Mailing labels with a master copy of all local addresses (and property owners addresses) that fall within the boundaries of the neighborhood.
    • Service request data: a report is issued monthly and contains all citizens’ code complaints targeting areas within the neighborhood boundaries.
    • Area zoning notices: registered neighborhoods are notified of any zoning requests and updates within the area. This information is provided by the Development Review Office of the City’s Planning Department.
    • Neighborhood programs information: notices of neighborhood programs that the City or participating organizations offer.

Neighborhoods Office staff can provide residents with many resources to make neighborhood associations successful. Is your neighborhood interested in registering with the City? Contact Senior Planner Alana Owen with any questions at 417-864-1831 or

Mark Twain’s boundaries are Sunshine Street on the north, Campbell Avenue on the east, Kansas Expressway on the west and Battlefield Street on the south. The association meets at 6:30 p.m. on the second Tuesday of each month at South Haven Baptist Church, 2353 S. Campbell.
