It's something Moline city leaders hope will bring more people the city.
City leaders have updated their plans to revitalize three neighborhoods in the city. The plans focuses on the downtown area, the Floreciente neighborhood, and the Edgewater district.
Officials are giving the green light to building new homes, new sidewalks and streets. City leaders also hope these changes would bring more businesses to the area and in the case of the Floreciente neighborhood, make it safer and more welcoming for residents.
"I've noticed they tore some houses down and then they rebuilt newer homes," New Style Barber Shop owner Miguel Rosas said. "So I think if they pretty much continue doing that kind if thing it's really going to make the area look better and better."
Jeff Anderson, the Moline city planner, says the work is being done because they want business and home investors to see good signs of improvement before they invest.
