Springfield Township is distinctive in landscape, character and service, yet united in vision. We are a unique community that has embarked upon changes to meet the demands of the future, while retaining those special qualities that attracted residents and businesses long ago. Founded in 1795, Springfield Township covers 16 square miles and has a population of 39,755 resident's (2000) census. The tree-lined, picturesque streets of Springfield Township include many diverse and unique neighborhoods, such as:
- Lexington Heights
- New Burlington
- Pleasant Run Farms
- Seven Hills
- Skyline Acres
- West College Hill
The Township is home to Winton Woods, one of the biggest of the Hamilton County Parks, but also offers recreational opportunities on eight tennis courts, 29 ball fields, 14 soccer fields and two basketball courts. Convenient access to I-71 and I-75 via the new Cross County Highway facilitates travel about Greater Cincinnati and beyond.
Residents elect three Trustees to govern the Township and a Fiscal Officer to maintain financial and other permanent records. Trustees set policies and hire a Township Administrator to implement their decisions. The Township Administrator directs the Township departments (Police, Fire, Roads, Recreation and Senior/ Community Center) and supervises all day-to-day activities of the Township.
