University Heights Development Receives No Vote by Planning and Zoning Commission

In a 7-1 vote, Springfield’s Planning and Zoning Commission voted against the controversial University Heights Developement.

The development at the corner of Sunshine and National will have a “no recomendation” sent to City Council by the commission.

“I don’t believe it compliments the neighborhood,” said Commissioner Bruce Colony said. “I don’t believe the neighborhood is on board, and so I can’t support it at this time.”
