On November 15, 2018, the City of Kansas City, Missouri City Council passed Ordinance 170962, adopting the Revive the East Side program and creating the East Side Investment Zone (ESIZ) along with other programs designed to encourage development and investment for the eastern corridor of Kansas City, Missouri. 

The East Side Investment Zone (ESIZ) is generally bounded by Cliff Drive on the north, Troost Avenue on the west, the City limits on the east, and 95th Street and City limits on the South.  The Revive the East Side ordinance outlines strategies to eliminate blight, enhance the tax base, generate jobs, promote economic development, create opportunities to attract, retain and expand businesses, catalyze further investment and redevelopment, provide safe and affordable housing, and encourage economic stability and growth within the ESIZ.
