The Arts Celebration takes place at the Chap Center this weekend in Midland


Priorities and concerns about city services, neighborhood issues and quality of life: three highlights for the city’s new public survey tool launched at the end of July. By asking Midlanders to rate their experience with different aspects of life in the big city – affordable housing, education, transportation and public safety – the city will be able to measure resident satisfaction and improve their responsiveness to concerns about the community.

The survey will appear through digital advertisements on news websites, social media platforms, blogs and apps. There will also be a link to
