FHRA Launches Revamped Website!

Over the past four months, we have been working to revise our website to be cleaner, more informative, and easier to navigate. And wow, I'll say we've accomplished our mission! Thanks to Tatum Hindman and her team at TBH Creative, we now have a website that clearly distinguishes between the Reuse Authority and Lawrence Village at the Fort. Why did we need to do that? The two entities have different messages. For example . . . The Fort Harrison Reuse Authority is the organization that was originally put into place to redevelop -- by reusing -- existing buildings and land left behind by Fort Benjamin Harrison Army Base. We've got 15 years of history in doing this; however, we needed a site that would share information about the Fort since its inception in 1903. We needed a place to store our approved board minutes. We needed a place for people to easily retrieve architectural review information. And, we needed an area to where we can refer the numerous callers who want to know the phone number for the PX & Commissary, for example. Lawrence Village at the Fort required different information for the sole purpose of getting the remaining 50 acres sold and developed. You'll find market analysis, land descriptions & prices, incentive information, and a bunch of other useful stuff including downloadable versions of the Village PUD and Master Plan. When you go to www.fhra.org you'll go directly to the Reuse Authority's site. In the upper right hand corner, you'll be able to click on Lawrence Village at the Fort and go there. Note the Village Talk button. That's where you'll see blog postings, which means I'm going to have to do a better job at keeping this information current. Or, you might get bored and not come back. And, we don't want that.
