HIGHLIGHTS FROM THIS MONTH
FROM CATHY: It’s the most wonderful time of the year! As we celebrate with friends and family, please think about how you can support local businesses during the holidays. Helping local businesses thrive is an important part of why Community Impact is here. You make it possible for us to bring you hyperlocal, unbiased news, and we thank you for supporting our mission. We wish you peace and joy this holiday season. Cathy Williams, GENERAL MANAGER
FROM SAMANTHA: In this edition, you will read a story by reporter Michael Crouchley about Highland Village’s path to finishing its comprehensive plan (Page 24). The plan, once approved, looks to shape the remaining undeveloped areas of the city through the next two decades. Also, you will find our annual senior living guide with a list of local living facilities and tips from local experts (Page 12). Samantha Douty, EDITOR
WHAT CAN YOU SUPPORT?
If you love Community Impact, consider supporting us by becoming a CI Patron. Thanks to your giving, here are three big accomplishments our organization achieved this year to continue our mission of providing trusted news and local information that everyone gets.
MORE LOCAL TALENT: We created several new editorial positions to focus on our local content niche, including additional reporters for the newspaper and more multi-platform journalists for our daily newsletter and website.
NEW LEADERSHIP: We hired a new Chief Financial Officer, Kelly Outlaw, who joined us from Habitat for Humanity. Her favorite saying is "I add faith and humanity to the spreadsheet." You can trust that every dollar you give, along with our advertiser support, is reinvested with integrity and a people-first approach.
ADDITIONAL PRODUCTS: We launched podcasts in our Austin, Dallas-Fort Worth and Houston metros with host Olivia Aldridge and created an additional digital offering for our advertisers called CI Storytelling.
