Midland Park

MPK Press Celebrates Nine Months

09/19/2013 08:35AM ● By Rebecca K. Abma

Midland Park Press was born on Dec. 19, 2012 as a means to improve online communication in Midland Park. In nine months, we have posted more than 500 articles and events focused exclusively on Midland Park. 

In that time, we have worked to find answers to important questions, such as what happened with the 2003 referendum and how do our taxes compare to other communities. We have sought to improve open access to government by Livestreaming School Board and Council meetings, providing detailed meeting notes and posting public notices online. We also launched a text alert service that provides reminders about recycling nights, school events and much more.

We have also worked to bring the community together and spark revitalization of dormant community organizations, such as the Chamber of Commerce and the Friends of the Library. Most importantly, we have aimed to be a place where the community can share information and learn about what is going on in Midland Park.

If page views and unique visitors are any indication, we seem to be succeeding in our efforts. Daily, our site visits and page views are in the hundreds with thousands of unique visitors each month. Here's a look at a few of the pieces we have put together for our readers:
