TULSA -- One of Tulsa's roughest neighborhoods could be getting a facelift near 61st Street and Peoria Avenue. 

The Savannah Landing apartments, formerly known as Fairmont Terrace, was the scene of 2013's quadruple murder. 

A faith-based group out of Cleveland bought the complex last year with plans to spend millions renovating. We still haven't seen those improvements. But Tuesday, the city plans to announce a public safety grant for the area. 

City leaders have helped improve the neighborhood in the past. A community center and health clinic have been added in recent years. 

But crime continues to be a problem. 

In fact, police say a passenger shot a driver in the face near 63rd street and Owasso Avenue over the weekend. 

Tuesday's announcement could finally bring a change to the troubled south Tulsa neighborhood.
