Community Meeting November 2019

Date: 11/19/19

Location: Wells Fargo Community Learning Center (1601 N. Main Street)

Time: 5:30 p.m.

Tim Hope, SPAR Board President, welcomed the approximate 45 guests to the meeting. He shared a recap of PorchFest 2019 and offered thanks to SPAR Board and Staff for a successful event.

Tim presented news about the repair of the SPAR building at 1321 N. Main Street, which was damaged during Hurricane Irma two years ago. The SPAR Asset Management Committee has chosen an architect and have analyzed the first draft of drawings/blueprints. The next step will be the bidding process and search for a contractor. The soft goal is to have SPAR building open and operational by the 2020 Home Tour. Tim went through the approved blueprint, pointing out each designated space, including a full conference room for use of the Board, as well as the rest of the Springfield community.  

Tim opened the floor to questions about the project and presented the Building for the Future, capital fundraising campaign, to the community. This campaign will focus on raising funds for building renovations and improvements set to begin in the Spring of 2020.
