Executive Summary
Te Rebuild Springfeld Plan was initiated by Mayor Domenic J. Sarno in response tothe June 1, 2011 tornado that ripped through the City o Springfeld. Te Mayor rec-ognized this time o planning and rebuilding as an opportunity to think beyond thestorm and develop plans to bring the city back bigger, better and stronger. A public/private partnership between DevelopSpringfeld and the Springfeld RedevelopmentAuthority was established to engage the citizens o the city in a systematic planningprocess. A feen member Rebuild Springfeld Advisory Committee was appointedto help guide that process.Over the last six months, nineteen separate community meetings with an aggregateattendance o about 2,000 citizens have been held in various locations, primarily in the areas impacted by the tornado. Tis Rebuild Springfeld Plan is built on thehopes, aspirations, suggestions and criticisms voiced in these meetings. In a very real sense, the residents who attended these meetings are the authors o this Plan.Te collective voices o Springfeld expressed in this Plan constitute a mandate toimplement this Plan in a systematic ashion as quickly as possible.Te Rebuild Springfeld Plan builds upon and incorporates many previous plans,reports, and studies rom a variety o organizations and stakeholders in Springfeld,including City plans and documents, neighborhood plans, ULI reports, and many other studies.Te Rebuild Springfeld initiative is about more than simply returning the city to itspre-tornado condition. Te intent o this plan is to establish realistic short-term andlong-term visions or the uture o Springfeld and create recommendations aroundpeople, places and programs that will guide the revitalization o this Western Mas-sachusetts hub.Te Rebuild Springfeld Plan has two levels o ocus. Rebuilding strategies addressboth the tornado-impacted neighborhoods and the city as a whole. Te neighbor-hoods aected by the tornado were organized into three Planning Districts:
District 1 District 2 District 3
 Metro Center Maple-High/Six Corners, Old Hill East Forest ParkSouth End Upper Hill Sixteen Acres
 
Forest Park
Citywide and District recommendations are organized around a systemic modelcalled the Community Nexus. Tis includes the Physical, Cultural, Social, Organi-zational, Economic, and Educational assets o the community. By using this model,residents and stakeholders have created a holistic plan or Springfeld.
