Merger with Midtown Action Council
The Boards of the Midtown Action Council (MAC) and Friends of Midtown (FOM) are excited to announce a formal merger to become one organization working together for the greater Midtown neighborhood.
About the Midtown Action Council
Midtown Action Council (MAC) was formed on Nov. 14 ,1977, encompassing “Historic Midtown,” better known as the area from Forster to Verbeke streets and from Front to Third streets.
During it's 40+ years, MAC was involved with many neighborhood improvement and beautification projects, like purchasing and installing an outdoor bench at the Broad Street Market, installing street banners throughout Historic Midtown, supporting local businesses, working with local officials on community improvements, and much more.
In 2024, MAC formally merged with Friends of Midtown. This allowed both organizations to consolidate resources and maximize the positive impact to the greater Midtown neighborhood.
