Springfield Approves Master Plan For Development Near MGM Casino
The MGM casino that opened in downtown Springfield in 2018 has not been the hoped-for catalyst to redevelop the surrounding area.
In fact, buildings on the other side of Main Street from the casino are mostly vacant.
Now the city has come up with a master plan for redeveloping a several block area near the casino.
WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Tim Sheehan, the city’s chief development officer.
