Community-focused websites: Your finds
In a recent post about blogs and websites focused on housing, development or local neighborhoods, I asked you all if you've run across other sites worth pointing out. Naturally, you have.
MCG suggested Change Baltimore, a new blog that opines about problems and promises future solutions.
Carson recommended the Washington Village Development Association's blog, which details efforts to clean the neighborhood -- complete with photos of trash-wrangling and of troublesome vacant properties. (WVDA has videos here.)
These Wonk readers also noted that a lot of neighborhoods have Yahoo groups where folks can keep abreast of local happenings. Not usually in the same category as muckraking sites, of course, but a potentially useful tool for residents and people thinking of moving in. Here's a list of Yahoo groups you get when you search on "Baltimore neighborhood."
