There is good news about the who Moreland Corridor down past this area. A Liveable Communities Initiative (LCI) state grant is doing a complete traffic and street-scape study and have great planning recommendations to make. Of course, this is master planning - so the funding and time-frame is not certain. But, the visioning and community plannning is where all this "New-Urbanism" begins. I'll post some direct links to my web-site to provide more information about this.
Look at how the intersection of Moreland at Custer (Eastland) are improving... more retail is coming as the Charter School down there is expanding... - Good Stufff!
