Springfield to Compete for America in Bloom Award

This summer, the city of Springfield will compete against similarly-sized cities in a national competition called America in Bloom, which concentrates on community efforts in categories such as tidiness, environment and heritage preservation.

Tidiness & environment aside, over the years, Springfield has demolished it's train station, essentially it's entire downtown, recently, an entire neighborhood, it's Memorial Hall is abandoned & slated for demolition, it's old city high school is abandoned, it's old men's club is abandoned, numerous old schools are vacant lots....
lotsa luck on the heritage preservation part, folks....
