Springfield city officials hope the results of a recent study will prompt safety improvements for pedestrians at intersections.

The Street and Intersection Pedestrian Safety Study, released Nov. 21, follows the July launch of the SGF Yields campaign through Springfield’s Public Works Department.

Hazelwood Cemetery

Hazelwood Cemetery on W. Seminole in Springfield is nearly a century and a half old.  The largest municipal cemetery in the state, it encompasses more than 60 acres and has more than 44,000 grave spaces, which are still being sold.  As the cemetery approaches its 150th anniversary in October, public input is being sought as part of a visioning process for the site.
