The Bel-Aire Motel is on the sales block.  A “For Sale” sign went up on the building Monday with a $750,000 asking price.  The property has long been a trouble spot for police and area businesses.

“Perhaps with sign going up the owner has finally realized it is time to move on and sell the property let someone else come in who has a new vision for it, ” said Springfield Economic Development Director Mike Farmer, who wasn’t aware the building was up for sale.

Ward 6 Alderman Cory Jobe is somewhat optimistic a buyer can be found that will either raze the property or upgrade it.

The owners have been fined numerous times for code violations.  Attempts to reach the out-of-state owners for comment have not yet been successful.
