Welcome to the Town of Springfield!

Springfield Town Hall in Dane, Wisconsin

The Town of Springfield, located in northwestern Dane County, Wisconsin is predominately a farming community. The town is about six miles square bordering both sides of U.S. Hwy. 12.

A population of approximately 2,900 enjoy the rural atmosphere, with its gently rolling topography. We are served by three different school districts, four post offices, three EMS departments and two fire departments.

We encourage Springfield residents and visitors to explore our website.  We welcome your suggestions for information you would like us to include here, or your ideas on how we can make the site more useful to you. Thank you for visiting us on the web!

Whippoorwill cul de sac history and synopsis  See update below.

A special meeting on this topic was held February 9, 2021 at 7:00 p.m. The board heard comments and answered questions from the approximately 45 residents that were in attendance either in-person or remotely.  The turnaround will be put out for bid as part of the 2021 road projects and the town attorney will draw up a Developer’s Agreement to assess cost(s) to any lots accessing the turnaround in the future.  Two prospective sites have been chosen (see diagram below), with the land and discard location of excavation materials being donated by the Springfield property owners.

Engineer estimates for the sites are listed below the diagram.

Cost of sites

At their Jan. 19th town board meeting, supervisors heard comments from residents in attendance and reviewed the written correspondence and voicemails received.  The board edited and approved a letter from Chairperson Pulvermacher to be mailed to Springfield’s residents in response to Mr. Niesen’s mailing.  The Chairman’s letter stresses that no final estimate has been received. Preliminary figures estimate a much smaller cost than the figure used by Mr. Niesen. The town’s letter also corrects the number of property owners (7) and residences served by a turnaround (5).  The board informed those in attendance that no final decisions have been made, research is ongoing as to whether to move forward with the project, where any such turnaround would be located if approved, as well as the design, materials and cost of the project.
