In 2009 United North also completed a streetscape improvement project on Summit Street that includes historic decorative lighting, brick imprinted sidewalks, canopy street trees and tree grates, and street furniture including benches and planters. A unique feature of this project is a decorative asphalt design for the intersection of Summit and Lagrange Streets (see below).
Summit Street is one of the neighborhood's primary commercial corridors and serves as a main artery to downtown. The Summit Street Master Plan, adopted by the neighborhood in 2000 and into the City of Toledo’s 20/20 Plan in 2001, serves as the catalyst for development of the riverfront along Summit Street. A new zoning overlay district is helping to reverse infrastructure decay, enhance architectural uniqueness, and celebrate well-designed storefronts.
