I hope you will find Location19.org useful. Be sure to sign-in when you do navigate around in Location19 so you see all the options you have now that you are a member.
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.
