    Air pollution is one of the top environmental concerns of the Springfield residents. This community meeting for residents of the Mason Square neighborhoods will discuss:

    -  What effect does air pollution have on health?

    -  What effect does air pollution have on jobs and economic development?

    -  What can we do to improve air?
