Get Involved: Midtown South Mixed-Use Plan

The Midtown South Mixed-Use Plan (MSMX) seeks to foster vibrant, 24/7 mixed-use neighborhoods across 42 blocks of Midtown South. The MSMX Plan focuses on these centrally-located areas where new housing is not permitted under today’s half century-old zoning rules.

Community members are encouraged to join the MSMX public kickoff meeting on Tuesday, October 17 at 7:00pm via Zoom and fill out a short survey to get involved to help shape the future of Midtown South. 

For more information and updates on the plan’s status, please visit here.
