Midtown Rising Connect
Midtown Rising Connect is a new initiative created to strengthen communication between Midtown residents, city hall/lawmakers and community organizations. The goal of this initiative is to increase the flow of information in our city, facilitate the availability of resources, and to give residents an opportunity to connect with one another in ways that are mutually beneficial.
Why this project?
Communication is both challenging and critical for the people who live in our community. Poverty and the absence of sufficient resources unnecessarily prevent information from getting into the hands of the people who need it. Preliminary community polling suggests that approximately 65% of the Midtown area is online while the other 35% is not. In light of this barrier, we need a comprehensive plan and process to determine the best ways to communicate information. Midtown Rising Connect is working to accurately identify who is in our community, and what forms of communication work best for different people (eg. texting, phone calls, mailings, social media, emails or specific pick up locations for information.) We will use this information to correct the breakdown in communication, increasing the ability of lawmakers, organizations and citizens to connect quickly and efficiently.
