Imagine a map of Haverhill that shows the city’s 13 neighborhoods. Imagine hundreds of pins sticking in it, one suggesting the address of each member of Haverhill Matters — on both sides of the river, downtown and in suburban developments.
Haverhill Matters is a new community institution whose mission is to bring reliable, robust and timely journalism to Haverhill, at the same time encouraging civic engagement and strengthening our civic fabric. As a cooperative, it will be owned by its reader/members, the way shoppers own food co-ops and depositors own credit unions. And it’s aim is to include reader/members from all walks of life and from every neighborhood. To keep tabs on membership growth, come back to this page to check on the thermometer. Better yet, enter your email address at the top of the page and we’ll keep you in the loop. And please tell your friends to do the same.
