Visioning Open House | January 9, 2017 6PM - 9PM

MAPC and the committee hosted a Visioning Open House from 6pm-9pm at the Flint Library located on 1 South Main St. There were approximately 60 people who attended the event to hear about the town's history, the master planning process and provide their own vision for the future of Middleton. The event consisted of interactive stations where residents identified cultural assets, community challenges and also had an opportunity to fill our the master plan survey.


GREATEST OPPORTUNITY LEGACY

  • Rail trail

  • More of a "downtown" or town center area for shopping/services. Mixed with housing

  • Old town hall being preserved

  • More sidewalks for walkers and bikers.

GREATEST ASSETS

  • Country atmosphere

  • Belonging

  • Schools

  • Small town but lots to offer

GREATEST CHALLENGES

  • A real town square for gathering and events

  • nothing "vibrant" about Middleton, no draw for outsiders, other than ice cream.

  • Developments without infrastructure (e.g. sidewalks, local shopping)

  • Real youth/teen recreation, such as YMCA.
