Historic Coronado Neighborhood Phoenix

"we hope that this will create a framework through which individuals voluntarily build communities of shared interest and expertise to be dispersed to others."

we came to realize that in 21st century phoenix that individuals have busy lives, commitments and schedules. this did not and does not mean that we wish to abandon our desire for sense of community and the sense of well being that a "home" in a "neighborhood" brings into out lives. this needs and will always need to be created with interaction with others, neighbors, in the community. while this cannot always be face to face we can certainly pursue our commonality with each other in the age of the computer and the internet. It is a "new" form of communication, a written from, and we may not be as skilled in this as we are in other ways of coming together. we can and should try. as as stated above we hope this can be the framework to do so. please attempt to go to and be involved in as many as our "face to face" activities as you are able. this helps put the "face" on the name and facilitates our communication.

Please begin your exploration with the navigation buttons on the left. begin with the welcome/information the second link down on the left as this explains how the site is laid out and how it operates.

pardon our mess we are still under construction. this site is developed as a static reference point for those who want to access information online. there a varying degrees and levels of "involvement" and participation. explore and select those items that are of interest to you and how to remain connected. navigation is easy. these two items are explained in the site information tab. a good place to begin.

there is current collaboration beginning with other historic neighborhood to link to a "historic district e-hood" site. sharing our common information.

constructing e-hood coronado will require a lot of work. there are many areas of construction that still need to be assembled. web site construction, knowledge of dreamweaver a plus. our current budget is $100 per hour, however we welcome volunteer work on this exciting neighborhood project. this project can lead to connections and knowledge that can bring into the real world positive change for a better community.
