Our association have provided a voice for neighborhood residents in city hall as well as finding ways to maximize our quality of life. By 1915, some divisions activity was taking place in two locations of the Cross Country area. \"Bancroft Park\" was an ambitious paper project that anticipated development along Bancroft Road and Clarks Lane both North and South of Western Run. By 1940, however, very little building had taken place in the area. Some subdivision of land and a little building was also taking place along W. Strathmore Avenue, adjacent to the Glen community With the exception of several large apartment buildings which were erected east of Park Heights Avenue in the 1920's, most residential construction took place between 1940 to 1960. The Cross Country Improvement Association was started in 1971.
