High Springs at a Crossroads
The future of High Springs' main street is at a crossroads after city leaders pulled support and funding for a downtown development program. The grassroots effort, the Main Street Organization, first received support from the city 5 years ago leading to a public-private partnership. The move was made after some commissioners said they didn't have enough oversight of the organization. The organization will soon be without a manager. It's a move concerning some business owners including one who moved to the area because of the organization's effort and later volunteered for it.
"I'm concerned that High Springs is going to become anywhere USA," said the organization's president Lucie Regensdorf.
4 voted against the funding including Mayor William Coughlin who told TV20 by phone the decision was appropriate.
