The section is a valuable resource to readers that merits the many hours it takes to compile the listings each month.
Sometimes we learn about Impacts through press releases, but often the information is uncovered during regular market drives while scouring for “Coming Soon” signs—prompting us to ask construction workers what they’re building.
Once we confirm the name of the business, its address, the phone number and other information, we publish it online. Since we have several businesses opening, coming soon or closing, Impacts are intended to be short and not in a long-story format.
Most of the Impacts we publish online also make it into our print edition (see Pages 4-5) where we also map each Impact.
