District Info

Middlebury is Akron’s first settlement and has some of the richest history throughout our city.

Middlebury is a neighborhood with large business anchors and residents who care. Surrounded by Summa Hospital, The University of Akron, and Goodyear World Headquarters we have a diverse population that ranges from young families to past rubber company employees. Our Great Streets District focuses on one of the oldest intersections in the neighborhood.

Renovation & Plans

After two years of planning, in February 2018, stakeholders and residents came together to define a vision for Middlebury, a statement that outlines the neighborhood’s hopes for its future. In June of 2018 we commissioned an urban design firm and a local planner to help create a blueprint for the community to rally around as we invest in our community.
