Plain Press partners with NeighborhoodLink to place issues online

(Plain Press, August 2004) The Plain Press has formed a partnership with NeighborhoodLink to place the full text of Plain Press articles online, beginning with the June 2004 issue, at our new website,

The partnership will allow Plain Press readers to read the newspaper online on a home computer or on a computer at a neighborhood library, recreation center or community center.

Readers may choose the online version of the Plain Press to easily access links to websites of organizations that are referenced in articles or community board notices. Since online space is virtually unlimited, notices of programs, events and activities that will not fit in the print version can be placed online. NeighborhoodLink will archive issues, enabling readers to look at articles from previous months.

NeighborhoodLink, a service of the Center for Neighborhood Development at the Levin College of Urban Affairs at Cleveland State University , offers a variety of resources to promote citizenship and community involvement.

One such resource of NeighborhoodLink is Neighborhood News, which offers lists of upcoming meetings and events throughout the City of Cleveland as well as information on issues of importance to Cleveland residents. Community organizations wishing to place events online can access this service at Readers wishing to receive Neighborhood News by email can also sign up at that website. Neighborhood News will allow organizations that have missed the Plain Press deadline to have another venue to help get the word out about important community meetings.

NeighborhoodLink provides a forum to offer information about problems faced by communities in Cleveland and actions to address these issues. It gives readers access to a variety of data and statistics of importance in analyzing urban issues or exploring neighborhoods. The service links readers to advocacy groups and citizen organizations involved in such areas as housing, civil rights, the environment, community development and e-Democracy.
