YOUR BUSINESS AUTHORITY
Craig Hosmer, a member of the governing body, maintains the deal was done before it ever came to council.
The first downtown Springfield branch for Arvest Bank opened; a longtime licensed massage therapist became a first-time business owner; and 7 Brew Coffee opened its fourth shop in Springfield.
I wish they would let the development move forward. It is unfortunate that the University Heights neighborhood is having to deal with this, but they are on two of our most used streets and it is inevitable that a business buys that corner. The other three corners are already developed. To me it is a mute point. Let them build. They have already acquired the 8 houses needed to move forward. Obviously those "neighbors" had no problem with the development. I think it would provide a nice area for those with loved ones in Mercy Hospital, to escape for a while and enjoy the amenities.
