Save this House! Applications to purchase from PSOS
« on: December 17, 2017, 02:18:26 PM »
301 E 5th Street. Accepting applications for purchase beginning today. We base our decisions on a "Restoration Rubric." Use the rubric to submit a written proposal to preservationsos@yahoo.com. We will accept applications through 1/1/18.

Rubric: https://goo.gl/STUhHR

Historic Home: https://goo.gl/5LoiQo - - this link is not working - - - and for the life of me I've no clue how to post pictures here.   

For a photo, this link will provide one:

I believe it has a buyer - and a good one, at that.

On Tuesday, January 23, 2018 this historic structure was officially transferred into the hands of someone who will be restoring her to her full glory.  This old gal got a stay of execution and I cannot wait to watch her transformation!

Out of curiosity - is SPAR amenable to increasing Springfield’s density on some of its empty lots with either townhomes or mid-rise apartment complexes, as long as they’re architecturally consistent with the neighborhood character?  Are parking requirements strictly enforced, or does Springfield aim to be pedestrian-centric versus auto-centric?  Thanks.

Don't want to hijack this thread, as a loooong vacant fantastic historic home was just purchased by capable & competent buyer.....

But to your questions:

> Agreeable? Sure, hypothetically. The devil is in the details.

> Much of the neighborhood has no parking requirements. SPAR -in general- is not a fan of adding barriers to development at the moment. Springfield is very much pedestrain-centric currently, and will likely stay that way.
