The CPO has been coordinating its effort with a number of community organizations to address economic development and commercial revitalization along Amsterdam Avenue 138th -155th Street; W. 145th Street, Amsterdam Ave – St. Nicholas Ave; and St. Nicholas Ave, 141st – 150th. Groups include West Harlem Group Assistance and Heritage Health and Housing which is overseeing the Heritage Heights Village CR program.

The CPO has assisted with this effort by working with property owners to make façade improvements, beautify the commercial strip, and publicize vacant storefronts. The CPO is also focusing on the replacement and removal of illegal billboards, inappropriate storefronts, signage and awnings that are not consistent with the historic character of the neighborhood.
