The Neighborhood Advisory Council (NAC) and its 18 registered neighborhoods are committed to making Springfield a better place and celebrating the unique qualities of each of our areas.
We encourage our residents to get more engaged with their community through clean-ups, block parties and signature events.
Our initiatives include working with police officers on Neighborhood Watch, with Building Development Services on addressing chronic nuisance issues and with City Council to invest in more sidewalks to our schools and improved facilities in parks.
Pete Radecki, from the Bissett neighborhood, has been an exceptional chair for the NAC over the past three years. We greatly appreciate his leadership and commitment to enhancing the quality of life across Springfield.
I appreciate the opportunity to continue his legacy. We will remain steadfast in our core services while exploring ways neighborhoods can be a positive player in the City’s revisions to the comprehensive plan, expanding our residents’ participation at the ballot box and engineering more opportunities for neighborhood roundtables to learn from one another.
My two decades of experiences in the Midtown and West Central neighborhood organizations have reinforced an appreciation for the difference individuals can make when they band together for a common cause. I look forward to working with each of you over the next two years to make our neighborhoods and Springfield a better place.
