Over the years, CHS has told a story or two from Montlake. We’re connected to our neighbors — in many interesting ways. For those of you who have followed our effort to gather news and information around Capitol Hill know, we take the job (mostly) seriously and with a sense of pride powered by a competitive nature to be the best. That doesn’t mean there isn’t room for others to tell the stories, too — especially when they are dedicated and do a good job of it.
So welcome Montlaker to the mix of telling the stories of Seattle. New neighborhood news sites are fragile things. Many have come and gone. Here’s wishing good luck to http://montlaker.com. We look forward to working with you — and, occasionally, kicking your ass on a story. You can also follow along via Twitter with @montlaker.
Here’s what the person behind Montlaker told CHS about their hopes for the site:
One of the major reasons I wanted to start this project is to give the neighborhood a voice in the new world of hyper local media. The Sound Transit tunnel noise debacle made clear to me that Montlake is not so well represented online and often ends up tagged as NIBMY-land. The label is sometimes justified and sometime not, and a neighborhood blog at least is a chance to make the case.
