Living in Springfield

The City of Springfield is a great place to live and visit. Our City offers all of the hospitalities of a small town and all of the amenities of a big city. Springfield is located just north of the I-94 corridor; west of Battle Creek, and only 20 minutes east of Kalamazoo and Western Michigan University.

Our City has a wide range of living opportunities: from affordable apartments, to starter houses, to new high-quality homes. The most recent addition to Springfield's housing stock is the new Orchard Hills Development. When completed, Orchard Hills will include 41 single-family homes with city water and sewer services and buried cable, electrical, and telephone services. This is truly a great opportunity to own a home in Springfield at a very reasonable price.

Springfield is currently serviced by the Battle Creek Public Schools, Endeavor Charter School and Battle Creek Montessori Academy. We have 40+ acres of City Parks, and through a joint effort with the City of Battle Creek, our City is now a destination on the 17+ mile Linear Park.

Springfield continues to provide a strong economic climate for our business owners and other investors through a number of incentive programs designed to encourage investment in infrastructure and jobs in our community. If you are interested in expanding your current Springfield business, relocating your existing business to Springfield, or interested in starting a new business in our City, please contact our City Manager to learn about the Helmer Farms Industrial Park and our other incentives! Springfield and Battle Creek are also the home of the Magnificent Motor Mile.
