Commercial revitalization creates opportunities in the East 11th Street and 12th Street corridors, which has led to an improved and culturally rich area. Businesses located in the two commercial/retail buildings provide services and opportunities for private investment.

The revitalization effort uses a combination of federal, local and private resources to improve the quality of life for the community. The redevelopment plan, which has been the instrument in the revitalization area, is slated for completion in 2018.
