Late in the summer of 2016, City Planning Commissioners designated the Cherry Avenue Corridor for the next small area planning initiative. The Commissioners cited several factors that influenced their decision to focus efforts on this area:
- Stresses on the neighborhood/corridor from commuter traffic,
- Large approved development under construction, anchoring the east and west ends of the corridor,
- Large numbers of vacant lots with potential for development along the corridor, and
- The ability to utilize the groundwork laid by the neighborhood in developing a Visioning document dated May 12, 2016.
