Providing an Important Service to the Springfield area

One of the key roles The Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce plays in the Springfield-Sangamon County area is the facilitator or convener of different groups to work toward the common goal of creating a thriving business climate.  As part of that vital work we provide on behalf of the business community, The Chamber hosts monthly meetings of the Development Policy Council (DPC) which is made up of representatives from the city government, county government, local developers, members of the Springfield Sangamon Growth Alliance, and members of The Chamber.

The mission of the DPC is to develop ways to streamline the permitting and zoning challenges within the city of Springfield.  The City has many major upcoming development opportunities, and it is imperative that we have a system in place to ensure that these projects can happen in a timely manner.  If you have interest in the DPC or questions, please reach out to Mike Murphy at or (217) 525-1173 ext. 205.
