Over the past decade, the MacArthur Boulevard has gone through a time of change. During that time, a dedicated group of residents and elected officials, from the local to the federal level, has worked together for the continued betterment of the area.
While the progress has come with a lot of tested patience, Tuesday was a clear sign of what’s ahead for MacArthur. The groundbreaking of our new neighborhood grocery store, Hy-Vee, has made all of the countless hours from our volunteers worth it.
The list is too long of all those who have been a part of this effort, but sincere gratitute goes to our elected officials, city staff, neighbors, business owners and the members of the MacArthur Boulevard Association who have all believed in the vision for MacArthur.
Now IS the time to Believe in the Boulevard. MacArthur Boulevard is an important piece of our city that links together many other parts of our community. The MacArthur Boulevard Association welcomes Hy-Vee to Springfield and looks forward to the great things ahead on MacArthur.
Jen Dillman, President, MacArthur Boulevard Association.
