The Springfield Avenue
Partnership is the District Management Corporation of the Springfield Avenue Special Improvement District. A Special Improvement District is a self-governed entity, which funds itself primarily by a special tax assessment on
commercial properties within the improvement district. The Partnership was initially created by a small group of neighborhood citizens who wanted to revitalize the main shopping corridor in their neighborhood. The
Partnership is now a 501 (c) (3) non-profit corporation governed by a board of trustees comprised of business and property owners, local residents and municipal officials.
The Partnership creates,
sponsors and coordinates marketing and promotional events for the Springfield Avenue business district. These efforts promote the business district to the local community and help create a favorable environment for new
businesses to locate. The Partnership also performs a variety of supplemental services such as sidewalk cleaning, conducting workshops, publishing a business directory, maintaining a database of available commercial space,
publishing a newsletter and assisting with façade renovation projects.
Our vision is to create a stable, diverse, friendly commercial district that provides for the needs of the local community, draws strength from the
municipal amenities on Springfield Avenue and brings new visitors into our district.
Major accomplishments of the Partnership include working to increase parking on the Avenue, assisting with the creation of Design
Guidelines for the District and hosting a yearly calendar of community events.
