The Topeka City Council approved an improvement plan in the Oakland neighborhood Tuesday night.
The governing body approved the plan on a unanimous vote.
It will set aside almost 2 million dollars for homeowners to make improvements to their houses.
The plan also will pay for improvements to infrastructure in central Oakland.
City Councilman John Campos told Kansasfirstnews Tuesday afternoon he planned to ask that the vote be delayed…saying he wanted to see more money go to sidewalks and less to paving alleyways.
However, he joined others in voting for the plan.
