The following recommendations are presented to sustain the goals of the Mission Planning Council in an effort to extend community from physical place to cyberspace:
>> aggressive introduction of site to community-based businesses, organizations, and institutions with parallel goals
>> offer site with translated content in languages reflective of the community
>> bulletin board for informal on-site community interaction and discussion >> news or newsletter featuring informative and insightful community produced content
>> monthly calendar highlighting public hearings, school events, community festivities, organizational meetings, art exhibits, etc
>> advanced site-search feature and jump-to capabilities
