Springfield Preservation and Revitalization (SPAR) was created by Springfielders, for Historic Springfield. We are an organization of action. Of marshalling resources, brainstorming solutions and getting results.

Our 100% volunteer board and committed membership lead Committees that funnel up to five critical priorities. To learn more about what we're doing, simply visit our Committees. Each one is staffed by SPAR board members, general members and interested constituents of Springfield.

See a cause that's near and dear to you? Then get involved. Whether you're a member or you simply agree with the solution, we need your help to make change happen. With your voice, your resources and your labor.

The Springfield Zoning Overlay was established over a decade ago to prevent new  "special use" properties from opening in our neighborhood, which were deemed to be hurtful to the health of our neighborhood by the City of Jacksonville and Springfield community.

Though it's been successful, there's a new challenge by special interests attempting to circumvent the Overlay. Find out more here, and please attend the public hearing on Thursday, September 4th @ 1pm at the Ed Ball building in Downtown (214 Hogan Street, 1st floor training room) to show your support for our Overlay and the continued revitalization of our unique and diverse neighborhood.
