On Monday, Oct. 18, Midtown residents, community members and stakeholders from the neighborhood business district will be meeting to review the accomplishments and discuss the future of the Midtown Neighborhood Association

A presentation will take place regarding a proposed peace sculpture and meditation garden for the Midtown Green. An annual report of accomplishments from October 2009 - October 2010 will be distributed to those requesting it, via email and posted to our Website.

Following the presentation and at the close of the meeting, nominations will be taken from the floor for interested parties to join the board of directors.l If you fancy yourself ready for this commitment, please contact our office to be added to the list of nominees for consideration. Board members are required to attend board meetings, annual events within the neighborhood and to participate actively in one of our three committee: neighborhood improvement, public safety and communications.

If you are new to the area or just getting involved for the first time in your community, this is a great opportunity to meet the staff persons employed at the association as well as the board of directors representing you. 

If you are "old hat" and have been involved in the neighborhood, through events and activities at the Midtown Green or the Fulton Street Farmers Market, consider this chance to come and meet other residents who can learn from your experiences within the neighborhood by following in your footsteps and doing good deeds close to home.

The meeting starts at 7 p.m. in the Salvation Army building (1235 E. Fulton).
