Neighborhood Vision 2025

Celebrate Local Businesses

MidTown comprises a rich array of unique businesses including wholesalers, manufacturers, retailers, professional and creative offices and more. These local industries and businesses truly set MidTown apart from other neighborhoods. The local businesses that have helped to shape MidTown’s identity should be celebrated to promote MidTown as a good place to do business and to increase the visibility and awareness of local businesses from local residents. Let’s tell the stories about what these businesses make through art, tours and programs designed to encourage people and institutions to buy and procure locally.
