Development & Public Works Department

The Development and Public Works (DPW) Department was recently organized into three divisions. The Community Development and Current Development Divisions are now one division. In the coming months changes will occur to some of our web pages to reflect this change.

  • Community Development: looks at the long-term future of the community and how we might grow, and oversees changes to property inside the City or the Urban Growth Boundary around it. Tom Boyatt, Deputy Director

  • Environmental Services: protects Springfield’s water resources by managing a stormwater program and partnering in the regional wastewater program. Matt Stouder, Deputy Director

  • Operations: keeps the City’s systems- streets (including traffic signals), wastewater, stormwater- running smoothly. Brian Conlon, Deputy Director
