A second Public Meeting was held May 5, 2009 to present three project options where residents were able to vote for their desired option and provide comments.

What's next?  The project is on hold.

This project is within one of five Comprehensive Neighborhood Improvement Projects (CNIP).  This project was selected due to the neighborhood showing a decline or weakness in one or more of the assessed dimensions in the Neighborhood Quality of Life Index.  Project need is based on addressing substandard and deteriorating neighborhood infrastructure, improving the livability of neighborhoods and preserving the tax base. 
The following infrastructure improvements were approved during the 2008-2009 Planning Phase:

  • Florida Avenue (Matheson to Shamrock):  New sidewalk, curb & gutter, and storm drainage improvements.
  • Simpson Drive (Matheson to Beckwith), Eastwood Drive (Anderson to Academy), Anderson Street (Eastwood to Sugar Creek):  Storm drainage improvements.
  • Hampshire Place, Dade Street (The Plaza to McMillan), McMillan Street, Maywood Drive (Existing sidewalk to Eastwood), Airlie Street (Eastwood to Shamrock), Dalehurst Drive (Eastwood to Elkwood), Elkwood Circle (Dalehurst to Shamrock):  New sidewalk.


  • Maintain, stabilize and revitalize the neighborhood through comprehensive infrastructure improvements
  • Strengthen the neighborhood and surrounding community
