Online Resource for all who live and work in Midtown Sacramento
Our historic places, urban fabric and urban forest distinguish Midtown from other parts of the city. The unique and irreplaceable built environment of our historic urban core makes us special. MNA is dedicated to preserving this fabric in Midtown. Our neighborhoods are our identity. Preserving them is essential to the well-being of the city as a whole. The Midtown Neighborhood Association is made up of several historic districts including Winn Park, 20th & N, Capitol Avenue and Bungalow Row. Neighboring districts include Boulevard Park, Marshall School, Poverty Ridge, Southside Park & Alkali Flat.
These are a few of our favorite spots in Midtown. Some are in the Newton Booth, Poverty Ridge, Southside Park, and Alkali Flat neighborhoods as well as in the MNA boundaries. Midtown has diverse neighborhood serving commercial area too. Also included are couple of historic downtown viewes because our historic downtown shows us that we knew at one time how to design walkable and liveable cities - we just need to remember.
Excerpts from the 2030 General Plan
The 2030 General Plan Land Use Map shows much of Midtown as a Traditional Neighborhood. The excerpt below describes characteristics of Midtown and offers insight on why why people love living here and fight to protect it.
"Traditional neighborhoods and the characteristics associated with them are highly desirable. Many existing traditional neighborhoods are well-established and generally wellpreserved; thus, changes to these areas will be relatively modest.
Changes proposed in these traditional neighborhoods will focus on preserving and restoring the quality of such areas by protecting and enhancing features such as scale and quality of housing, neighborhood character, and housing choice. Traditional Neighborhoods contain a wide diversity of development and the City expects to retain this diversity. It is also anticipated that future new development areas will be planned with attributes that emulate the traditional neighborhood form and character and include adequate neighborhood-serving uses".
