Enhancing a historic business corridor in Midtown will be the focus of a community meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday, July 16, at the New Mt. Zion Missionary Baptist Church, 515 Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune Blvd.

Residents and property owners are encouraged to make suggestions and provide feedback on ideas for aesthetic improvements to Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune Blvd. in the area from Dr. MLK, Jr. Blvd. to Ridgewood Avenue.
