Web Wednesdays – each Wednesday we will feature a website that we’ve come across while in our process of searching for inspiration, the latest trends, or learning about anything and everything we can get our hands on that interests us.

Develop Springfield

Nearly one year ago today, the City of Springfield was hit by a deadly tornado, leaving a path of destruction in its wake. To honor those whose lives were devastated by the days events, we wanted to call attention to the amazing effort that the city has put forth in rebuilding. Most specifically, DevelopSpringfield, which has had a large part in helping to form the necessary steps to begin this long road to recovery.

DevelopSpringfield was formed in 2008 as a nonprofit, to help revitalize the City of Springfield with services that target economic and community redevelopment. This past March they announced their partnership with the Springfield Redevelopment Authority to rebuild all sections of the City affected by the disaster, and we can already see the changes taking place.

Now we may be a little biased, since we designed their website and all ;), but the site offers great opportunities for one to get involved and make donations towards rebuilding and revitalizing their communities. If interested, they have also made all of their redevelopment plans available to the public in the form of their”Rebuild Springfield” Master Plan, which is available for download on their website.
