What will Midland look like in future generations? Citizens are now being offered several opportunities to voice their opinions in person and online.
The City of Midland is asking citizens to take the lead in imagining what their community will look like in future years through “Tall City Tomorrow,” a long-range plan that will set the course for Midland’s future development. The City is giving residents and businesses several chances to work alongside planners to sketch out a vision for the future that will reflect the city’s values and aspirations. The plan will address long-term issues such as housing development, delivery of public services, improvements to infrastructure, recreational opportunities, and public-private partnerships.
Four public workshops will be held across Midland from Feb. 9 through Feb. 11 to provide feedback on design concepts that were developed through other public meetings held late last year. Citizens are encouraged to attend the meetings happening in locations of interest to them for a more customized discussion of that broader area.
• Monday, Feb. 9 from 5:30 p.m.- 7 p.m.: Greathouse Elementary (5107 Greathouse Avenue)
• Tuesday, Feb. 10 from 5:30 p.m.- 7 p.m.: Fannin Elementary (2400 Fannin Avenue)
• Wednesday, Feb. 11 from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m.: Susie’s South Forty (401 S. Marienfeld Street)
• Wednesday, Feb. 11 from 5:30 p.m.- 7 p.m.: Casa De Amigos (1101 Garden Lane) – will include Spanish-English translator
In addition to the public meetings, an online “MindMixer” forum has been launched to provide an interactive, collaborative forum to foster discussion about the future of the city. By logging onto TallCityTomorrow.MindMixer.com, citizens can apply their ideas, knowledge and expertise to help shape the future of Midland, as well as explore and comment on the ideas of others within the community.
