Businesses have moved out and property values have dropped. Tuesday night residents and business owner held a meeting with city leaders urging action.

In the crowd was Mayor-elect Sandy Stimpson.

“This is one of the area's that was under served and it was the very first meetings I had on the campaign trail was only 100 feet from here. It is important and we came down here and we listened then and we are going to listen tonight and when we take office it is going to be time to start making things happen,” said Stimpson.

No official plan has been laid out by the city to start revitalization. District councilman CJ Small says he is confident the money is coming.
