Perhaps the development can be named after Fred Hampton.

Assist and educate Black and local business owners on best business practices, including marketing, the process of acquiring loans, etc. Make public transportation more easily accessible. Lobby for more consistent cleaning services and waste services from the City. (Because they’re pretty awful at the moment.)

I leave this neighborhood for everything. Groceries, mental and physical health, work, arts and cultural events and institutions. We need to fill that gap so people don’t have to leave the neighborhood to find these things.

A narrative mural (by a local artist) that tells the history of this neighborhood would be beautiful. Much like this one by Diego Rivera in Mexico City: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_History_of_Mexico_(mural) Also create some sort of long-term project that continues the lineage of arts and culture in this neighborhood by supporting and nurturing local artists.
