After more than 10 years of running PhinneyWood.com, it’s time for us to say goodbye.
We are in negotiations with someone to take over this news site, but it may be a couple of months before that happens. In the meantime, PhinneyWood will still be online for you to check the archives or upcoming events, however, we won’t be posting anything new.
As your neighborhood news source for Phinney Ridge and Greenwood since May 2008, we’ve published 7,204 posts about breaking news, crime, development, business and transportation issues, lost pets and interesting neighbors, plus added thousands of events to our calendar.
In just our second year, we won a national journalism award for our breaking news coverage of the arson that destroyed four Greenwood businesses in 2009.
And our made-up name “PhinneyWood” quickly became not just a news site but an actual place, with neighborhood real estate listings and advertisements routinely using the term PhinneyWood to describe the neighborhood.
Thank you to our wonderful community for all the news tips, photos and collaboration over the last 10+ years. We still live in the neighborhood and will continue to be involved and help make the PhinneyWood neighborhood a special place.
Stay tuned to our Facebook and Twitter feeds for updates as new editors will hopefully take over in mid-December.
Sincerely – Doree Armstrong & Dale Steinke
