Editor's note 7/12/18

 The restored Governor’s Mansion opens to the public Saturday, along with the new Jackson Street Trail and its Bicentennial Plaza. The mansion renovation is a fine gift to Springfield from Gov. Bruce Rauner. Illinois Realtors and their executive, Gary Clayton, joined the magnanimity by adding Bicentennial Plaza. Mayor Jim Langfelder and city government did its part with the work on Jackson Street and the underground water retention project on the Y block, with TIF funds stitching it all together. Many planners and funders have stepped up to the plate. Gratitude for this first phase should help the Y block development go better. So far so good. –Fletcher Farrar, editor and CEO
