Good Neighbor Handbook

Springfield Community Policing Partnership
Good Neighbor Handbook

An abbreviated guide to quality of life regulations in Springfield

  • The Good Neighbor Handbook outlines ordinances and other laws dealing with quality of life issues in the City of Springfield. It should be an invaluable tool to police, neighborhood groups, business associations and concerned citizens.

  • Ordinances have been summarized as simply as possible and are not the exact language of each ordinance. General Ordinance or Zoning Ordinance citations have been referenced for those wishing to read the exact text. The agency charged with enforcement of each ordinance has also been listed. In most cases, non-emergency complaints to the Police Department will be directed to the non-emergency phone (787-6302).

  • Together we can make our city a better place in which to live and work.
