How Are We Doing?


As we approach the two month anniversary of the launch of Santa Monica Next, we wanted to take a moment to ask you, our readers, how we’re doing. We are proud of the work we’ve done bring event previews and reviews, writing about car-free options to enjoy the areas biggest events, provided a forum to discuss the beginnings of Airport2Park. Our most popular stories were Gary’s reviews of the Tongva Park soft opening and the PopUp Mango Demonstration on Michigan Avenue followed by my lament of the role the FAA has played in the debate over Santa Monica Airport.

And, of course, there was the video looking at Bike Center completed by Kris Fortin and Shireen Alihaji.

But it’s not enough for us to be happy with the website, you need to be happy with it to. Since so many of you have contributed in some way or another to the opening and funding of the website, we would love to hear your feedback.

So, how are we doing? Let us know in the comments section or on social media. We’d love to hear from you.
