Things looking up for Hartford's neighbor to the North

5 posts in this topic

A recent article from the New York Times highlited some of the better things happening in Springfield, MA. It talked about how the city is now back on the tracks to recovery and is slowly working to better itself through a variety of various projects...none of which include residential just yet.

The article also mentions how as Springfield went downhill with money troubles New Haven and Providence (Hartford was not mentioned) worked to reinvent themselves.

Good article, nice outlook from the New York Times

Slowly but surely things are starting to turn around. It will be interesting to see what type of spin-off development comes together as a result of some of the current projects going on.

One thing Hartford has beneffitted from that Springfield likely will not is State Government investment in the city. Springfield does not get a lot of support from the state the way Hartford does in terms of subsidies to developers. Like it or not, subsidies have really helped revitalize Hartford. Most in the Mass. Legislature don't even know the state continues past Worcester.

Notice they gave tax incentives to companies to remain in the city. AND IT WORKED! A lesson Eddie Perez needs to learn, in fact, the every politician in Connecticut could use that lesson.
