Top 10 Reasons I Created Progress And Main

Posted on June 25, 2011 at 6:00pm 1 Comment

Since starting Progress & Main, I've received a lot of questions from people. The two most common questions are:

-Why Did You Create ProgressAnd Main.com?

-Why Do We Need Progress & Main When We Already Have X (Facebook, Scholar, LinkedIn, Twitter, Town Newsletters, Discussion Boards, etc)?

Both are valid and good questions. So here are my Top 10 Reasons I Created Progress & Main:

10 - Meet New People - While Facebook/LinkedIn are great,… Continue

Thanks, Mike. I think you've got a very nice body of work here, with a lot of helpful information and opportunities for the neighborhood. Thanks for letting me be a part of it. Don't hesitate to call on me if I can be of assistance. With two commercial properties off Progress Street on either side of you, the quality and character of the surrounding neighborhood is of great interest to me, as well as is the way my properties are viewed and fit into the overall scheme. I definitely want to be a good neighbor to the residents around me, so be sure to let me know if there's ever anything I can do to improve that.

Thank you!  I'm fairly new to Ning and wanted to learn more about it and about the Town's involvement in social networking.   This seems like it can be a wonderful tool for community communications!   Is this site provided as part of the Town's Neighborhood Associations organization?
