Shawnee Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy Area (NRSA)
The Shawnee Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy Area (NRSA), dubbed “Shine on Shawnee”, calls for renovating up to 115 homes over five years, and targeting economic development through CSR’s microbusiness program.
Community Service and Revitalization held three informational sessions in the Shawnee neighborhood in early November 2013 and the turnout was great! Shawnee residents can still apply to this program by calling 574-4377 (Option 8).
