Around F.C.

Common Place America Project Outlined for Council

nn2The Oldest F.C. community organizer meets the youngest. That’s perhaps what we saw at the Falls Church Council meeting Monday night, when Falls Church native Peter Davis (left), a 2008 graduate of George Mason High School, stopped to chat with the venerable Lou Olom (right). The encounter came after Davis spoke to the Council outlining the online project he and his Harvard University roommate developed to encourage community interaction and involvement, which began in Falls Church just last week.

The encounter came after Davis spoke to the Council outlining the online project he and his Harvard University roommate developed to encourage community interaction and involvement, which began in Falls Church just last week. The project, called “Common Place America” is being developed to give residents and leaders of any given community an online resource to interact with one another. Davis has already signed up over 275 City residents for the site and hopes to have 1,000 by the end of the month. It can be accessed at FallsChurch.OurCommonPlace.com. “It’s working already,” Davis reports. “One resident got an electrician recommendations, and someone got two babysitter recommendations.” (Photo: News-Press)
