good news facebook/blog page about different neighborhoods

NEW INITIATIVE: GOOD NEWS FACEBOOK/BLOG PAGES FEATURING DIFFERENT NEIGHBORHOODS IN TOWN--positive energy to promote communities will boost property values...




Community Outreach Meeting--Edgemont High School Thursday night, May 17 at 8 PM with the Edgemont Community Council



Town officials will discuss community concerns with residents of Edgemont.



NEW INITIATIVE PLANNED TO FOCUS ON THE POSITIVES OF DIFFERENT NEIGHBORHOODS--- To help residents who are trying to sell their homes -- I am planning a new town wide initiative that I think will help make the difference when potential home owners compare homes in Greenburgh neighborhoods with homes in other communities.



Neighborhood facebook pages and blogs that will highlight the positives of each of the different neighborhoods in the town. Student interns, who have started to work in my office this week, will be setting up the pages in the coming weeks.



The first neighborhood facebook page/blog will focus on the Edgemont community. At tomorrow evening's community meeting in Edgemont we will solicit volunteers who can help write the positive stories. Stories could include:

*Edgemont school district rated by US News as one of the top school districts in the nation!

*Features on outstanding students and residents --who have been honored...

*Neighborhood part of a town that has received the highest bond rating possible (Aaa) by

Moody's & Standard & Poor's...

*Profiles of outstanding local teachers...

*A list of parks, playgrounds...

* Updates-infrastructure improvements and town services...

*Crime prevention initiatives...

*Profiles of families conserving energy...

*Features on shopping located in the immediate neighborhood...

*videos will also be posted on the sites...

*Updates from local realtors about successful home stories....



If you would like to work with the student interns on this ambitious ongoing project - and if you have experience with web design, writing, video taping we'd love it if you would participate in this initiative. When possible home buyers google a neighborhood they should learn about the good things each neighborhood in the town has to offer.



E mail me at pfeiner@greenburghny.com if you'd like to get involved. Let me know what neighborhood within the town you'd like to help promote.
