MidTown is home to six National Register Historic Districts and eighteen distinctive neighborhoods. Many neighborhoods have long-established associations, with monthly gatherings and special events. New neighborhood associations and neighborhood watch programs are growing. MidTown, Inc. will help foster your neighborhood association.
MidTown, Inc. hosts an annual holiday gathering of Neighborhood Association leadership, providing an opportunity to build community among neighborhoods, and for leaders to share challenges and successes with one another. We offer periodic programs to address issues of concern or interest to MidTown residents, and maintain a contact list of Association leaders to notify residents of timely information.
