About Midtown Association

Midtown Association started as a collection of passionate business and property owners that banded together to improve the neighborhood in 1985. Midtown has since grown to be the arts and entertainment core of Sacramento with a dynamic Property Business Improvement District serving over 1,200 properties through three property district zones, two restaurant districts, and six active and growing parks.

Today, the mission of the Midtown Association is to make Midtown the center for culture, creativity and vibrancy in Sacramento’s urban core. The organization is behind many incredible art, landscaping and lighting projects, efforts to keep our community clean and safe, well-known events like Midtown Second Saturday and the Midtown Farmers Market and acts as the voice of the community to create a vibrant and lively neighborhood full of character.

Often recognized across Midtown for their branded shirts and vehicles, Midtown Association’s Clean and Safe team is a dedicated group responsible for enhancing the cleanliness, safety, and overall appearance of the Midtown area.

Our team is also available to provide insight and collaboration on projects that are meant for private properties that are within district boundaries. These projects and improvements can include:

  • Pilot projects that include temporary, low-cost and/or smaller scale public space interventions that encourage engagement from Midtown residents and visitors such as:
    • Banners, murals, lighting, and utility box wraps
  • Capital improvements that include permanent structural alterations or repairs that improve sustainability and increase the overall value such as:
    • Protected bike lanes, road closure bollard installations and electrical upgrades


Committee Meetings

Typically held quarterly, Midtown committees meet to discuss needs specific to their geographic areas of our community. These committees provide access to fellow stakeholders, Midtown Association staff, elected officials, and partner public agencies such as the Sacramento Police Department. Business and properties within the district are able to attend, and contribute to, these committee meetings.

How to Join Midtown Association

As a nonprofit organization dedicated to the enhancement of Midtown, Midtown Association provides these special Property Business Improvement District-specific services to assessed commercial properties across the 104 blocks located within the Midtown Zone. These properties are indicated in the red area on the map below and are generally bound by 16th street, J street, 29th street and R street. However, properties that fall just outside of these boundaries may still be eligible to join the district by requesting a property assessment.

Properties and businesses that join the district receive special services and help support Midtown Association’s goals to contribute towards a beautified Midtown that sees economic growth, improved infrastructure and reduced crime. They can also expect to see:

  • Annual savings on security, exterior cleaning and maintenance without having to contract with multiple companies
  • Opportunities to contribute to, and network at, district committee meetings
