Here is a list of several of the major projects, roughly in order they were undertaken:
* Seventh Street ("Smokey Road"), $1 million. Some 56 houses were removed and replaced with new houses.
* Second Street/Constitution Square State Historic Site, $3 million. This project involved the demolition and replacement of some 65 residential and commercial properties on Second and renovation of several historic buildings at Constitution Square, including Grayson's Tavern, the Goldsmith House and Fisher's Row, and of the McDowell House across the street. In addition, the city's original post office - the first such facility west of the Alleghenies - was moved from West Walnut Street to Constitution Square. The square was deeded to the state, and the Parks Department, under then-commissioner Bruce Montgomery of Danville, built Governor's Circle and walkways.
* Third Street/Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center/Arnold Towers, $800,000. This project involved the removal of a dozen, largely rental properties and doctor's offices and sale of the properties to the hospital for $13,000 for use for future expansion. The second part of the project involved acquisition of land for construction of the six-story, 64-unit Arnold Towers for elderly residents.
