West Central Neighborhood Alliance

West Central is unlike any place in town. Located on Route 66, just west of downtown Springfield, Missouri, it’s full of historic buildings and homes including stately Victorians, quaint bungalows and apartment houses.

 Welcome to West Central

Springfield’s Downtown Neighborhood


The West Central Neighborhood Alliance aims to promote pride and awareness in the residents of our downtown community.  We encourage the ideals of an affordable, desirable and diverse neighborhood for everyone to live, work and play.  We support quality business growth and work to assist our fellow residents either by representation or education toward resolution of concerns.  We recognize the area’s great potential.  If you yearn for the days of front porches and friendly neighbors, we encourage you to join us by living and investing in West Central.
