Vote for Springfield's 20-year Comprehensive Plan pushed back
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WICS) —
The vote for the 20-year Comprehensive Plan has been pushed back for 30 days.
Springfield city leaders made the decision Tuesday night at the city council meeting.
It was pushed back because officials felt they needed more time to dive into the details to make sure nothing was missing.
The plan would improve the city's attractiveness, connectivity, and infrastructure.
Mayor Jim Langfelder said he hasn't given up on the plan passing.
"Hopefully this is it,” Mayor of Springfield Jim Langfelder said. “Hopefully you don't have a continuation of another continuation. So that's what we hope for a definitive timeline."
The next zoning meeting where the plan will be voted on is set for January 16.
In the meantime, residents can still give feedback on the plan.
