The Best Laid Plans...

Posted by Jack

One of the most common questions I get here at the house goes something like this: “What are your plans?”

Everywhere I go, there is someone with a deep interest in what we are doing in Springfield, and they often frame their interest in a question about our plans.

Several folks were even pushing me to write a 6 month plan, a 1 year plan, and a 5 year plan for the growth and development of our community.

I don’t fault people for this. I genuinely appreciate their interest in us, and I admire their efforts to make us articulate just what it is we are trying to do.
