NEWS & RESOURCES
GOOD MONDAY MORNING,
MIDTOWN COMMUNITY.


We want to say a word of thank you to all the many, many peaceful residents and business owners who participated in events this weekend in Midtown. It’s unfortunate that a very small group of individuals took the liberty of doing damage to some of our buildings, businesses, and public spaces. We will be working to address those issues immediately. But we know the vast majority of you not only participated peacefully, but helped keep it all clean and safe for others. We will continue to do the work we do, lifting the Midtown community up and maintaining a great place for all. 
We stand with you all, always eager to take the next steps forward.

 



We want to see your faces!
Please join us this Wednesday, June 3 at 9:00 am for our monthly Coffee Klatch!
