To develop neighborhood based, communication focus centers to provide an on-line platform for sharing neighborhood concerns, social networking opportunities and charitable giving opportunities, overlooked by traditional media outlets.

Staffed by a technology officer and a communications officer, each center will utilize a portable backpack production system to produce NOWCastSA, studio quality video for live remote broadcasts on the web.
