(wfcr) - When consultants came to Springfield last year to help the city revive its economic fortunes, they had one primary piece of advice -- focus on the downtown. Taking that to heart, Springfield is spending $2.5 million for cosmetic fixes on main street, from new sidewalks to better lighting. In the second of WFCR's two part series on downtown Springfield, Karen Brown reports there are still many vacant offices and storefronts, but some new businesses are also opening up. © Copyright 2017, wfcr
