Currently, there is no mechanism to help neighbors address their legitimate concerns about safety and blight. What we need is an advocate for the houses, allow them to "speak" and find help. At Preservation SOS, we would like to experiment with a "We Care" hotline.
If you have a problem with a house in historic Springfield, give us a call and we will try to find resources to mitigate the problems and save the house. Our efforts may include, but are not limited too: contacting the owner, offer owner advice/suggest resources available, arrange meeting(s) with neighbors to advice/suggest resources available, arrange meeting(s) with neighbors to address their immediate concerns. Our main goal will be to speak for the house and preserve it.
To use this volunteer service, please call 904-335-8767 (335-8SOS) and leave a message or post your concerns here.
Here you can discuss issues/concerns that may be code violations, in hopes that Preservation SOS can handle before reporting them to the city.
