Middletown Main Street is proud to partner with WILMAPCO to conduct a "walkability workshop" for the Downtown Middletown District. Essentially, MMS is assessing the current physical environment of the downtown district while exploring prospective improvements. Some improvements could include repairing or widening sidewalks, improving green spaces or parks, addressing vacant or dilapidated properties, making businesses more easily accessible for patrons, possible beautification projects and much more.

MMS facilitated a preliminary walking tour on August 18th, 2021. The actual Walkability Workshop will occur on Wednesday, September 29th at 4:00 p.m. at the Middletown Town Hall Plaza - 19 W Green Street, Middletown, Delaware. If the weather is inclement, October 6th is the rain date (also at 4pm). This event will include group collaboration activities and a walking tour of the central Downtown area. Participants should dress comfortably and be prepared to walk approximately 1/2 mile. Register here! Slots are limited.
