The Midtown Association is an organization of businesses along Charlottesville's West Main Street that was formed in 2009 to promote commerce along the corridor.

One of the group's specific requests is that the owner of a parking lot next to the AMTRAK station pave the surface, claiming that dust from the gravel is a hindrance to business. [1]

The group called for charette to plot the future of the corridor.

Midtown Street Fair

The association closed West Main between 4th Street W and 7th Street W for five hours on September 11, 2010 as an attempt to draw attention to Midtown as a destination, and not just a thoroughfare between the Corner district and the Downtown Mall[2]. The hope was for the Midtown Street Festival to become an annual event.
