I hope you will find Location19.org useful. I don't know how much you have navigated around in Location19, but be sure to sign-in when you do. When you are signed in you see all the options you have now that you are a member. Also when signed-in, you can see other members who are currently signed and they can see you which makes it easy to chat if you want.
Not only are there many discussions in the main Forum but most of the 69 groups have Discussion Forums of their own. I'm not sure what your interests are but be sure to join groups you might be interested in. Fore instance the SW Education Forum group is very active. We use this group to document the activities we are involved in fighting to improve our schools. Good schools are a must if we want to attract and keep young families in the neighborhoods. When you join a group, other people with similar interests may request to friend you which makes it easier to share information or interest. Also note there if a COTS group (Changing of the Scenes) which is the neighborhood Tremont Street is in. It is time to stir some activity in that group.
