Are you looking to get information out quick to the people of Carrollwood?
There may be a streetlight out or you may also have an announcement to make about your street’s yard sale. Maybe you’re a business owner and you want to let people know about a special sale you’re having.
Boards on Patch are a great way to alert the town about whatever you need to say.Ready to get started? Here’s how:
From the homepage, type what you want to say in the box at the top right that says "Make an announcement, speak your mind, or sell something." Choose a category and click "Post."
The post will appear on the homepage and the Boards section of the site immediately. On the Boards section, you can see what others are posting about and search through topics.
There four different boards on Patch right now:
- Buy/Sell/Trade: For your shopping and selling needs.
- Business Updates: Used by business owners and customers wanting to talk about local shops.
- Speak Out: A board for getting your opinion out.
- Announcements: Where you get statements out about the community.
Anyone can comment on your board post with a question or an idea, so it’s easy to interact with your neighbors and get the word out to the community!
