Riverside Park Storm Shelter and Softball Complex Fundraising Campaign

Riverside Park Community Safe Room and Rothenburg Campground Capital Improvement Campaign

About the Project

On July 23rd, 2021, the City of Springfield was awarded $651,391.03 from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) towards the construction of a community safe room. The proposed project mitigates future flood damages and potential loss of life from severe weather.

Community support is needed to raise $150,000 in order to complete the storm shelter project. Every contribution will help make this safe room a reality and we thank all donors for their generosity.

For more detailed information about the project, download the city's application and award packet below.
