The Midtown Community Benefits District
The Midtown Community Benefits District was first authorized by law in 1996. It is a community organization dedicated to making a 150-block area -- the neighborhoods of Bolton Hill, Charles North, Madison Park, and Mount Vernon-Belvedere -- cleaner, safer, and more attractive by supplementing municipal services. These efforts are funded by a taxpayer-approved property tax surcharge.

The Board and Staff of the District are very excited to be serving the community and encourage residents and businesses to take an active role in helping their efforts to improve these neighborhoods.

Midtown has an interactive link on its website from which a Midtown resident or property owner may submit a service request; the link is
