Thank you for the support and encouragement you have shown me and the Fort Greene Commins experiment. It means more than I can possibly convey.
I've always felt Commins could be a vehicle for connecting the community through local events and mapped services. I intend to start with informal gatherings and happy hours for neighbors to meet neighbors. I also want to listen to you and occasionally introduce a local business whose offering addresses local needs.
I'll send updates as the next chapter for Commins takes shape but I'd love your collective input. If you ever want to talk community ideas, I'm always happy to hear from you.
Sending love & gratitude,Sam Utne
