I support Spar because I see the potential for the neighborhood, and I see Spar as a vital link between neighbors, government and other civic institutions.
Springfield Preservation and Revitalization (SPAR) Council is a grassroots nonprofit working to preserve and build community in the Springfield Historic District.
SPAR has served as a resource and advocate for our community since 1974. We facilitate improvements in quality-of-life and work to preserve the unique character of our neighborhood, engaging with city leaders and law makers; hosting popular public events; and helping residents directly.
See a cause that's near and dear to you? Then get involved. We'd love your help.

Committee members--The Christmas Tree is happening.The city has come through with a lift and a driver. The lift will be at Klutho Park at noon on Friday.Between now and then, please do what you can to collect ornaments, bows, garland, or whatever you can get your hands on. You can bring everything to the spar building or bring it to Klutho on Friday.Since we only have the lift until 3:30, we will start at the top and work our way down. If anyone has any tall ladders, bring them if you can and you can go bottom up. Also, this is my first 30-foot tree to decorate. If anyone has any suggestions on how we should tackle this, please speak up.I will be down there at around 11:30 to try and get a game plan together.

Strengthening Community and Business Through Partnership
Springfield Preservation and Revitalization (SPAR) and Springfield Area Merchants and Business Association (SAMBA) are proud to announce an on-going partnership, with SAMBA becoming an affiliate of SPAR as of September 2012.
Both organizations share the mission of facilitating a revitalized Springfield historic district, on our residential streets and our commercial corridors alike. In an effort to provide the best possible services and representation to the community, SPAR and SAMBA will share talent and resources, ideas and energy, while maintaining autonomy.
In 1974, SPAR was formed by neighborhood advocates coming together to meet common goals, and almost three decades later, SAMBA was established to help meet the needs of local businesses. We feel that by working together, we better position ourselves to pursue activities and policy beneficial to our growing neighborhood.
We look forward to engaging with residents and the business community to move our diverse and unique community forward, and appreciate your support.
