Borough of Midland
An Amazing Place to Live and Work!
By partnering with Midland Development Corp., Lincoln Park Performing Arts Center and Midland Arts Council, Midland is defining itself as the cultural and artistic destination of Beaver County.
Having secured funding for downtown improvements, the borough underwent an ‘extreme make-over’ on its main thoroughfare, Midland Ave. New sidewalks and streetlights and the improvements to building facades have had a dramatic effect on the impression downtown makes on visitors. With over 650 professionals coming into town every day to work, a good deal of traffic making its way each day down the main thoroughfare, and with many attending the cultural and arts performances, Midland is well positioned to expand its’ already thriving retail and restaurant base. Now, with the $6 Billion Shell Cracker Plant currently under construction, Midland is anticipating a substantial increase in industry and residents, taking advantage of its' close proximity to this new mega-plant.
This is a partial list of things that help make Midland unique and a great place to live and work:
- Midland Ave. is clean, safe and bustling with activity
- Benches and/or mini-parks line the business district so people can gather outside as well as inside
