What is The Next 10?

The Next 10 (TN10) is a collaborative community engagement effort for the Greater Springfield Area to help define how we take bold steps together for the region’s future. Sponsored by the Community Foundation for the Land of Lincoln, The Next 10 gathers ideas big and small from local citizens (that’s YOU!) through a variety of virtual engagement tools and conversations. Our goal is to inspire, challenge and add context to the desires of the Greater Springfield community as we continue to lay the groundwork for the future, together.
