Shaker Heights took a lead role in integration efforts by forming the Shaker Housing Office to assist black families in finding homes in predominately white areas of Shaker. In 1957, the Ludlow Community Association was formed in response to discriminatory real estate practices and began to encourage white buyers to purchase homes in the area, while the Moreland and Lomond Associations were formed to discourage white flight from those neighborhoods. Shaker residents galvanized and organized to oppose the proposed building of two eight-lane freeways known as the Clark-Lee, which would destroy Shaker Lakes and the Shaker parklands.
