​In November 2014, voters approved $20 million for the Comprehensive Neighborhood Improvement Program (CNIP) . This​ project was selected as one of the projects to move forward under the Prosperity Village CNIP. 

This project includes the design and installation of streetscape beautification of the frontage roads, Craven Thomas Road and Robert Helms Road, off the I-485/Prosperity Church Road exit. The streetscape could include widening of the existing sidewalk to a multiuse trail, trees/shrubs, resting areas and lighting. The project could also include the development and construction of gateway identification monuments/signs/artwork to be installed on the I-485 entrance ramps and/or in some or all of the six roundabouts.​ The Arts & Science Council​ will be involved during the planning phase.
