[ARCHIVED] New E-CityHall Survey: Main Street Pedestrian Plazas

July 10, 2020 – On June 19, Downtown Midland closed two blocks of Main Street to vehicular traffic and created pedestrian plazas to provide additional shopping and dining space for the district’s restaurants and retailers and provide safer physical distancing outside. With the closure now underway, the City of Midland invites residents and visitors to share their input on these vehicle-free pedestrian areas via a new survey launched on the City’s online public engagement platform, E-CityHall.

The survey asks respondents to relay their experiences while visiting Downtown Midland during the Main Street closure, including topics such as safety, parking, visit details, and more. The survey should take less than 10 minutes to complete.

Once completed, the results of the survey will be shared with the Downtown Development Authority, Midland Downtown Business Association, Midland City Council, City staff, and the general public.

The survey can be accessed via the City’s website at

Residents who do not have internet access or cannot complete the survey online may submit feedback on the Main Street closure to Community Affairs Director Selina Tisdale at 989-837-3304 or

Expanded shopping and dining space in Downtown Midland is an initiative of the Be S.A.F.E. Downtown Midland campaign. The Midland Downtown Development Authority has launched the Be S.A.F.E. (Safe, Active, Friendly, Excited) Downtown Midland campaign to encourage visitors to practice social distancing and proper hygiene guidelines, wear a facial covering, have patience with downtown businesses, and find new ways to explore all of Downtown’s many amenities.
