About 200 people packed Springfield’s Wildish Theater Tuesday evening to hear Mayor Christine Lundberg deliver her 5th “State of the City” address.

Mayor Lundberg began her speech by turning on a street lamp on the stage. This was to bring attention to the revitalization of downtown Springfield. The city is continuing to invest in infrastructure projects such as updated street lamps. Lundberg introduced a video highlighting the creation of its new Simpsons mural, which was unveiled last August. And she revealed a new project set to begin this year.
