Our Website Is Trying to Save our creek - please provide feedback
Hello GoCentral Community! Our website is SAVEWILDCREEK.COM.
This website was established to organize the citizens of Reno, Sparks, and Washoe County to unite and save a very valuable community asset: Wildcreek Golf Course. Some members of various city and county boards, councils, commissions, etc. are trying to build a high school on our beloved golf course/open space. This my first attempt at building a website. Your suggestions, constructive criticisms are welcomed and solicited.
Now the hard work begins.... Getting folks involved. Create a Facebook page and Twitter account. Add a blog to your site and start posting about why the golf course should be saved. Maybe a thought or activity a day (posting flyers, doing a snail mailing, topics for your next meeting) that folks can subscribe to so everyone remains focused.
You are going up against local gov -- and that's a tough hill to climb. The only way to make them even consider changing their mind is to use your site and social media to gather support and gain momentum so they know the people they serve have a different POV on this project.
=> Consider adding a photo gallery showing more views of the golf course. It looks like it is stunning! Show people what they will lose!
=> How about posting the names, phone numbers and Facebook/Twitter pages of the "decision makers" on this project. .Gov officials don't pay attention until their jobs are in jeopardy. Their publicly available profiles for their positions are there to be used to garner constituent feedback.
=> When is the next strategy meeting? Set one and post it in big bold letters -- show you mean business!
