- Upgrading the amphitheater in Midwood Park
- Signal box wraps
The Midwood Park Community Garden was created in the summer of 2005 by Plaza Midwood residents interested in beautifying an unused lot near the tennis court in Midwood Park. Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation is our partner in this effort to create a beautiful, horticulturally-rich space where children and adults can learn about preserving wildlife habitats, gardening with native plants, composting and other environmental-friendly practices

BEST OF PLAZA MIDWOOD
LAND USE GROUP
The neighborhood watch actively pursues a safe, responsible living environment by supporting our law enforcement officers and their efforts. The goal of the Neighborhood Watch is to help Plaza Midwoodresidents stay better in touch with each other and get the word out about suspicious activity.
DOG WASTE STATIONS
PMNA has installed more than a dozen pet waste stations covering nearly every corner of the neighborhood. Each station is professionally maintained by Charlotte Poop 911 on a weekly basis, with the cost of that service covered by our great sponsors.

STROLL AND ROLL
A campaign led by residents in Plaza Midwood, and sponsored by the Plaza Midwood Neighborhood Association (PMNA) and Sustain Charlotte, urging City Council to improve pedestrian and bicycling safety by implementing a complete street design within three specific target areas on The Plaza and Central Ave. Find out more and sign the petition at the Stroll & Roll Facebook page.
PMNA is working in conjunction with CDOT to improve safety and driving conditions on both Parkwood Avenue and The Plaza. This will involve a reduction of traffic lanes, the addition of bike lanes, new crosswalks and other safety initiatives.
