The Near East Side Neighborhood Association, area social services agencies, and private businesses have partnered over the years to undertake beautification projects for this section of Lancaster Avenue. Future infill development is desired to be compatible with the existing 1920s industrial/warehouse architecture and house uses that include arts, crafts, antiques, etc.

The village was recently awarded $823,571 to undertake community-driven planning activities and public improvements.
