When I moved back to Fort Lincoln in 2013 I grew incredibly frustrated on the lack of coverage, engagement, and updates with community development. Even more concerning was the pace and amount of development which had no input from most existing and the majority of new residents. Today, we not only reach our community but communities across the world in 123 countries with over 90,000 views since 2013. While we still have a long way to go, I just wanted to take a moment to reflect on where we started and where we are headed. Part of what will keep us relevant is our ability to be informed residents and I will continuously strive to allow Gatewaytothtecitydc.com to be a platform where residents can get information regarding activity in their community especially as it relates to Fort Lincoln. This is not an opinion blog, although sometimes it gets injected but it is simply a conduit of information for the community to consider and act upon.
Where do we go from here?
I now need input from you. What other types of news and updates would you like to see? Is it activity from other developments and communities, more information on meetings, TED Talk info, or more frequent post. Provide me your feedback and I will work with you to get us the information we need. Thanks for the support and I look forward to an exciting 2017!
