Built Environment Committee

The Springfield Built Environment committee brings together City of Springfield staff members who work on the Built Environment to assure regular communication and collaboration. The group, which meets monthly, first started meeting nearly 20 years ago. Members include representatives from the following city departments: Public Works, Planning & Economic Development, Parks, Buildings & Recreation Management, Health & Human Services, Elder Affairs, Police and Springfield Public Schools.

In addition, representatives from other organizations participate, including Pioneer Valley Planning Commission (PVPC), Pioneer Valley Transit Authority (PVTA), Way Finders, TDI, the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (Mass DOT) Safe Routes to School Initiative, and the Public Health Institute of Western Massachusetts (PHIWM). PVPC and PVTA are quasi -governmental organizations that serve the city. Way Finders, TDI and PHIWM are nonprofit organizations that work in Springfield to advance a healthy built environment. The Mass DOT Safe Routes to School Initiative advances safe walking and bicycling to school
