Springfield, MO – Based on feedback from a recent neighborhood association meeting, homeowners have unanimously approved the addition of several noisy and dangerous neighborhood garnishes. An outdoor concert venue, nightly fireworks displays, a shooting range, one quarter mile NHRA dragster track, and a new space shuttle launch pad will all be added by the end of this year.
Residents agreed that train noise and safety issues could easily be curbed by adding more dangerous and noisy distractions – plus these things are much more fun than a coal-carrying train. “I’m never letting my kids out of the house again, but each evening we’ll be able to feel a fireworks show while I put them to bed and pray to God that embers won’t light my house on fire,” said 20-year Weller Street resident Graham Fisterton.
“Ah, the shooting range will help our students learn self-defense, so that will ah…increase safety,” said Joanna Tugly, who lives on Walnut Street, “and I’m ah…excited to learn how to rifle bullets myself.” Others see multiple benefits to the space shuttle launch pad. “Who wouldn’t want a chance to learn more about space in their backyard!?” said Brent Rimerton, a 12-year resident of Kickapoo street, “I mean this will totally kick butt!”
City Council members are encouraged by the amount of tourist dollars that will pour into the neighborhood. According to estimates, the outdoor concert venue and NHRA dragster track will generate millions of dollars each year. The City is offering to pay 2% of the initial costs.
