About AQCA

The Armoury-Quadrangle Civic Association (AQCA) is a non-profit organization that was formed in 1995 by residents of downtown Springfield who wanted to have an organized voice in the city.

AQCA’s main goal is to preserve and improve the character of the Armoury-Quadrangle area of downtown Springfield.

Dues to join the organization are modest - only $10.00 per year for individuals. See our Membership page fore more information on membership types and benefits.

Dues-paying members are eligible to vote at the annual meeting held each January.

Dues help cover the cost of printing and mailing information to members and non-members alike.

You do not have to be a dues-paying member to participate in meetings or events.

AQCA receives funding from the city of Springfield’s Office of Neighborhoods and Housing each year. This is federal grant money (through the Community Development Block Grants program) to help AQCA meet its goals and objectives.

A monthly meeting - which is open to all - is held the third Thursday of every month (except June and July) at 7:00 PM in different locations within the Armoury-Quadrangle neighborhood. Check the web site for details for upcoming locations.
We have a telephone number at (413) 747-1830 but the voicemail for that number is checked infrequently. It is best to email us at

However, our board of directors meets on the 2nd Monday of every month (through July, 2018) for a business meeting at the AQCA office at 140 Chestnut Street starting at 4PM to plan our events, activities, and how we meet our goals.

Meetings often feature a guest speaker who shares information of interest to downtown residents.

There are no paid staffers at AQCA. All work is done by volunteer members who want to work together for the benefit of our neighborhood.

There are several standing and ad-hoc committees that work on event planning, publications, community improvements, membership, and more.

Please consider attending an upcoming AQCA meeting to meet your downtown neighbors and learn how you can get involved.

We hope to see you soon!
