Middletown Shares

We want to hear what you think

Middletown Shares is a new, town-sponsored community platform for residents, businesspeople and visitors to learn and discuss about some of the ongoing issues of Middletown.

As part of the platform, the latest information about an issue will be loaded to this webpage. This could include everything from design plans for a project and artist renderings to a video of a community forum and other important documents. There will also be a passively moderated forum available for anyone to chat and discuss the issues in a safe, threat-free environment.

The thinking with Middletown Shares is that it will help the entire community understand the issues of Middletown better in a more holistic, grassroots way. Remember, we might not all agree all of the time, but we should all be focused on making family friendly Middletown the best place possible to live, work and play.
