The Eight Steps:
This plan was implemented in a city that is both much larger than Springfield and has better financial resources. However, that is not to say that Springfield cannot create and implement a large-scale plan to tackle the city’s vacant lot issue. Already, the City of Springfield has created the Memorial Tree Fund. For $110.00 the city will plant a tree that you can dedicate in honor of a loved one and will maintain it for three years. In late 2014 a Mow-to-Own project was proposed. This would allow people who live next to a vacant lot to care for it for a designated period of time, and when that time has elapsed they would be given the property. In addition, Clark County has established a Land Bank.
