Eric Wells

Eric Wells has always been passionate about science.  Although not employed in the field, he supports the aims and goals of the scientific community and was excited to find that there would be a National March for Science taking place in April.  It didn’t take long for him to hatch the idea of Springfield taking part and so a local organizing committee was born.  Eric stops by STEM Spots  to chat about the motivations, process and the actual day of marching that took place on April 22.

An architecture firm has presented its recommendations for revitalizing Springfield’s Kearney Street to the city council.

PGAV Planners shared ideas during Tuesday’s council lunch.  

It says Kearney Street has the potential to capture additional retail sales from the available $95 million in unmet household demand in the trade area around the corridor. That’s the nearly 3-mile stretch of Kearney between Kansas Expressway and Glenstone Avenue.
