Programs: The springfield avenue partnership is the district management corporation of the springfield avenue special improvement district. A special improvement district is a self-governed entity, which funds itself primarily by a special tax assessment on commercial properties within the improvement district. The partnership was initially created by a small group of neighborhood citizens who wanted to revitalize the main shopping corridor in their neighborhood. The partnership is now a 501 c 3 non profit corporation governed by a board of trustees comprised of business and property owners, local residents and municipal officials. The partnership creates sponsors and coordinates marketing and promotional events for the springfield avenue business district. These efforts promote the business district to the local community and help create a favorable environment for new businesses to locate. The partnership also performs a variety of supplemental services such as sidewalk cleaning, conducting workshops, publishing a business directory, maintaining a database of available commercial space, etc
