Neighborhood Vision 2025

Help Residents Reach Their Health Goals

MidTown and the surrounding neighborhoods underperform the City and County in very important health metrics such as rates of asthma and diabetes in the community. This Vision Plan can lay the groundwork for improving community health by stating clearly the needs of the community, drawing new partners to provide needed services and support, and by creating physical spaces and programs that enable people to take charge of their own mental and physical health, wellness, and education.
