Review of Springfield, Missouri

Slum town
Star Rating - 4/5/2021
Springfield is a slum town, especially downtown. I have never seen such a slummy dumpy town. At least half the commercial property sits empty; that tells you all you need to know,Does a downtown really need 3 bars on every city block?

Downtown Springfield has been the scene of an agressive, continuing revitalization effort over the past few years including street scapes, traffic circles, free parking and numerous loft apartments. The effects ofCovid restrictions have been tough on businesses here as elsewhere but this town has a positive outlook, a bright future, a low cost of living and is in a state with a constitutionally mandated BALANCED budget.

There are so many slumlords in Springfield. It is truly un-freakin'believable that the old buildings, not even close to being code, are still standing.
