The Right Size, The Right Place, The Right People
The right-sized community? For many, it’s somewhere between a town and city. It’s a place that has cultural offering like theaters,a performing arts center and a summer music festival. It provide strong schools, community colleges and universities. It offers recreational facilities like an ice rink, minor league baseball, water park and whitewater kayaking.
Springfield is just such a community - large enough to support abundant city amenities, but small enough that we can all work together and allow Springfield to be stronger than the sum of its parts.
The right location for easy access to work, home and fun. The very thing that makes the community easy to get around in for social, business and recreational purposes also makes it easy to get around in, period. Those who live and work in the Springfield/Clark County area have no commutes to speak of. Instead, they use their “drive time” to head to Columbus to see the Blue Jackets or Buckeyes, to Dayton to see a University of Dayton game or the minor league Reads affiliate, the Dayton Dragons. And, in just a few more minutes they can be at the Great American Ballpark or the zoo in Cincinnati, or slip across the river to the Newport Kentucky Aquarium.
The right location for business. Springfield’s location on Interstate 70, just 30 minutes from the junction of Interstate 75 makes it a perfect place to do business. Sixty-one percent of the nation’s population is within 600 miles. Springfield’s Municipal Airport makes it more convenient for those whose business is done in aeronautical miles. A variety of industrial, corporate and technology parks also make Springfield a place where industries can easily locate for a promising future.
Everywhere you go in our community you’re bound to run into our greatest asset – our people. Together we welcome you and invite you to live, work and play in Greater Springfield.
