The Wayne Township National Road Revitalization is a joint effort sponsored by the Greater Garden City Civic Association, Inc. and the 40 West Professional & Business Club. Todd Scoggins Architecture & Design is pleased to serve as the design consultant with this important effort. The main objectives of the effort are to provide safer pedestrian routes along streetscapes and intersections; to connect local schools, churches, and neighborhoods; to improve traffic flows in and out of the businesses and homes on US 40; and to provide a better environment overall for the existing businesses to thrive and for new businesses to invest in the district. The Sponsors are seeking the support of interested persons and organizations.
