NORTH SPRINGFIELD, Mo — We need to be good to our neighbors - that's the message Springfield Mayor Jim O'Neal has for the city, and tonight a special program kicks off to help.
The City of Springfield will invite residents in the Weller and Robberson neighborhoods to sign up for the "Neighbor for Neighbor" initiative.
Any neighbor young and old can come to Thursday's open meeting and share concerns facing them in the community - economic or social.
With the city's help, community members will split up into teams and come up with suggestions for how to improve their quality of life.
After a few weeks of team meetings, Neighbor for Neighbor wraps up with an action forum, when all the groups reconvene and share their answers.
