Neighborhood Vision 2025

Connect and Empower Neighbors, Block By Block

Collective community care paired with knowledge of neighbors, resources and communities leads to neighbors sharing information, identifying concerns and acting collectively to address those concerns. Programs, initiatives, and spaces co-created with residents as a result of this Vision Plan should help residents feel empowered from their strengths to connect, organize, and lead community-building efforts in MidTown. The ultimate goal is to build organic connections among residents to foster leadership & community ownership of the neighborhood.
