The Glenwood Refinement Plan establishes the vision for the future of Glenwood and will provide guidance on how land use, natural resources, public facilities and economic development opportunities should be developed, designed and enhanced over the 20-year plan period, based on a broad range of citizen input. The goal of the plan is to provide clear objectives, policies and implementation actions which will support and facilitate the redevelopment of Glenwood into an attractive place to live, work and visit. In November 2014, the Springfield City Council and the Lane County Board of Commissioners adopted amendments to the plan to incorporate revised figures and text based on the updated Franklin Boulevard Project design.

Franklin/McVay Wastewater Trunk Extension Project
The first construction phase of a new trunk wastewater line within S Franklin Blvd/McVay Hwy 225 was completed in 2014, and the second phase was completed in 2015.
