Neighborhood Vision 2025

Improve Neighborhood Safety

All stakeholders of the MidTown community - new and long-time residents, neighbors, area employees, and business-owners - share the desire to improve the real and perceived safety of the MidTown Neighborhood. These improvements will improve the health outcomes of the community and draw new investments to the area. These benefits will be achieved through the combined efforts to improve data tracking, connect stakeholders to local resources, and implement programs to bring Safety Ambassadors to the area.

Create Safe Routes to Schools, and/or to Transit Programs

Partner with local employers to offer safety escort from security personnel or MidTown Safety Ambassador for employees walking to vehicle or waiting for transit after hours. Establish preferred walking routes to area schools with volunteer crossing guards at key intersections at peak travel times for students.

Near-Term Actions


Work with schools to identify routes and parent volunteers for Safe Routes to Schools;

Encourage local employers to provide escorts to vehicles and transit stops by safety personnel until MidTown SID/CID is established.
