who is Downtown middletown inc?

Downtown Middletown Inc is a 501c3 non-profit organization focused on the revitalization and preservation of historic downtown Middletown. All of our initiatives and programs are community led, leveraging the passion and expertise of many talented individuals who love, live, or work in Middletown, Ohio. 

At our core, we are a quality of life organization. We work 365 days a year to create a better community for all residents and visitors to our area. How do we do this?

No, we are not just winging it. Our organization utilizes the proven Main Street 4 Point Approach to revitalization, a program developed by the National Trust for Historic Preservation for downtown districts just like ours. In short, it is a comprehensive approach that focuses on promotion and marketing, design and beautification, economic development, and organization of the district as a whole, stressing the importance of working consistently in all areas at the same time. You can learn more about the National Main Street 4 Point Approach by clicking here.

In February 2017, Downtown Middletown Inc was named an official Main Street community, a designation that can provide national prestige to downtown revitalization efforts. The Main Street Program, administered by the National Trust for Historic Preservation through Heritage Ohio, works with communities across the state to revitalize their historic or traditional commercial areas.
