There's an exciting movement in Midland and this is our moment to usher in the future.
Project ideas represent a mix of attractions and amenities to position Downtown for long-term success. Many project ideas were developed based on input from local residents and leaders, and on studies by professional urban planners and community groups. Every project, if and when it becomes reality, will go through the required public approval processes.
Initial areas of focus are as follows:
Enhance the Riverfront area to become a year-round destination for recreational and cultural events.
Improve accessibility and usability of roadways and sidewalks to enable more festivals, art fairs and other events.
Modify roadways and traffic patterns for better accessibility between Downtown and Midland’s other great amenities.
Develop vacant or underused properties within Downtown and surrounding blocks.
