The goal of the South Woodbury Neighborhood Preservation Program plan is to revitalize this area into a thriving neighborhood primarily by aggressive code enforcement targeted at vacant and abandoned properties, and the rehabilitation of single-family and mixed-use buildings. With this, the City will be able to arrest decline, protect the neighborhood’s unique character as a desirable place to live and to shop, and leverage existing assets and partnerships to catalyze community and economic development. Additional information on the South Woodbury NPP Plan will be available after the survey data is collected.
