Downtown Springfield, Inc. is hoping to compete for a grant to stage a summer concert series next year on the North Mansion Y Block downtown.
Up to 15 medium-sized communities could receive up to $25,000 from the Mortimer and Mimi Levitt Foundation as part of the Levitt AMP Music Series. Online voting will be used to determine a list of finalists for the grants. The voting begins November 1st at levittamp.org. Meanwhile, the vacant North Mansion Y Block will also be the scene of a wiffle ball game this Sunday featuring city and county officials and media members, including some WMAY personalities.
That game gets underway Sunday afternoon at 2.
