Community Focus 2009

The Community Focus 2009 report was funded by, and is a cooperative effort between, the Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce, Springfield-Greene County Library District, Junior League of Springfield, United Way of the Ozarks and the Community Foundation of the Ozarks. 

The report provides an objective assessment of Springfield and Greene County, and assigns “red flags” and “blue ribbons” to various indicators of the community’s health and vitality. Areas covered include public order and safety, citizen participation, natural environment and arts and culture, to name a few.

The fifth Community Focus report analyzes progress in the "red flag" indicators highlighted in previous reports, which include: 

  • Access to Health Care
  • Child Abuse and Neglect
  • Education Funding
  • Home Issues
