City Council Adopts Strategic Plan for 2016-2017

The City Council is pleased to announce adoption of the 2016-2017 Strategic Plan for Economic Development.  This plan is the culmination of a year long effort to establish a plan to attract new wealth and new jobs to Springtown. The effort started with a series of surveys to our community leaders, stakeholders, citizens and visitors.  These surveys are the basis of a vision for the future of Springtown. Results of the Visioning Surveys can be found in this Business section of the web site.  The economic profile for Springtown was developed as well as a SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats ) analysis. An inventory of available properties, developed as a part of this effort, is available on this web site. The Strategic Plan identifies the City's Mission Statement, Goals, Strategies and Actions for marketing Springtown.

City Council Reduces Impact Fees and Tap Installation Fee


City Council, to attract more residential development within the City, reduced the water and sanitary sewer impacts fees to $250 each for residential unit.  


Mayor Clayton had held discussions with home builders in an effort to encourage home building in Springtown and the builders requested a reduction in the high fees.  When the impact fees are paid is also negotiable.  The Tap Installation Fee can also be eliminated if the developer installs the tap.  The City then will charge only for the meter.
