ShilohDC Gets Photo Update and Minor Makeover
The ShilohDC website (www.shilohdc.blogspot.com, accessible here) received more photo content and a format adjustment last night. The images added document each vacant building owned by Shiloh Baptist Church. Additional content on the website is forthcoming in the days, weeks, months, and years ahead. Ultimately, I intend for each vacant property's "biography" to include a history of the building and its occupants, tax assessments/taxes collected for the properties, how long the property has been in Shiloh/Trustees of Shiloh's hands, contrasts of Shiloh's properties to neighboring properties (possibly with quotes from disappointed neighbors), and property-specific crime/graffiti/litter logs. Other site content may include a list of Shiloh's non-parishioner funding sources, assessments of their occupied properties (e.g., the awnings on their daycare center are faded and broken, there is an apparently abandoned car in their otherwise dark and scary parking lot at 1531 9th Street), discussions of neighborhood activity (e.g., their continued protest of new restaurants' liquor licenses), and so forth. Other ideas are welcome.
ShilohDC is now in my Shaw Blogs and Links list.
