I was wondering if you have considered setting up an electronic forum type page for people in the [GLC] to converse or discuss topics on. A way for people in the community to connect with other people in the community based on mutual interests, concerns, or resources.
For example, with the gas prices increasing, being able to connect with others in this community who would like to do ride sharing would be a benefit.
Another example, connecting gardeners together, both as a learning resource, but also as a possible means of promoting something like a mini-farmer's market type thing, where local gardeners can offer their extra foods to others in the community.
Or a forum could even provide a way of finding local resources within the [GLC]. A person looking for a resource, such as a painter, a babysitter, to borrow a book, or to learn a skill, can advertise in the forum what they are looking for (or what they can provide as a resource for others).
I believe that setting up a forum like this could help increase the community feel of [GLC]. This means that residents would begin investing time, emotion, and maybe even money into the community. This would improve the economic resiliency of [GLC] as a viable living area when/if economic times gets hard.
