Welcome to the City2City Pioneer Valley

“City to City” is an initiative where leadership in one metropolitan area of the United States visits another metro area, linking with their counterparts and learning how they address similar issues with the goal of returning with new tools to advance their home community.

The range of issues participants are exposed to include, but are not limited to, education, economic development, the arts and public safety.

This blog has been developed to inform the Springfield metropolitan area about the launching of City2City Greater Springfield, what was learned on City2City Greater Springfield’s first visit in late 2010 to Winston-Salem and Greensboro, North Carolina, what ongoing initiatives have emerged from the trip and to let the community know about future City2City Greater Springfield engagements.
