Midtown Neighborhood Association (MNA) began as the Midtown Museum District Neighborhood Association in 2008, initiated by a few tenacious residents of condominiums at Tapestry on Central, seeking greater City representation of their neighborhood. In 2015, the founders incorporated into a 501(c)3 with a mission to organize various social and information-sharing events that provide opportunities for neighbors in Midtown Phoenix to get to know each other. Critical to MNA is the promotion of neighborhood safety and Block Watch groups to reduce crime and vandalism. We partner with representatives of local government – Mayor’s office, City Council, Phoenix Police, Keep Phoenix Beautiful – and transportation purveyors like Valley Metro light rail, as well as Midtown parks, museums and cultural arts to achieve our mission.
Midtown’s area stretches from Culver St to McDowell Rd including Margaret T. Hance Park (Central Ave to 3rd St); from McDowell Rd to Thomas Rd (1st Ave to 3rd St); and from Thomas Rd to Indian School Rd (3rd St to 3rd Ave). Our neighborhood is blessed with a variety of cultural and performing arts venues, excellent public transportation, accessible green spaces and well-preserved historic residential neighborhoods, as well as business and architectural support of our urban lifestyle.
