Flashback 5 years ago to Spring 2012 and Talmadge Communication’s first launch of a Talmadge website which finally hosted all of Talmadge’s organizations at one online location. It provided our first Talmadge Calendar, featured photos of our beloved streets, streetlights, canyons, historic gates, and promoted Talmadge publicly as a Great Place to Live! The website, completely built and maintained by volunteers somehow chugged along on a wing & a prayer, free of charge, keeping Talmadge informed & connected. The website aged out, but during its service it boasted Talmadge’s progress in under-grounded utilities, new sewer & water mains, newly paved streets, new street lights, our acclaimed Watch & Patrol, and the many good works of our vital neighborhood organizations. Neighborhood websites are so important to telling a neighborhood’s story to potential homebuyers & homerenters. Many a new neighbor applauded the website for helping them see that Talmadge was a “together” & connected neighborhood accomplishing the goals needed to ensure high quality of life in an exceptional neighborhood. Evident to all seeking to live here, indeed Talmadge is a very special neighborhood and among the best San Diego has to offer.
Fast-forward 5 years later after a neighborhood fundraiser and gifting from Talmadge Block Party, to this Feb 2017 website Relaunch. TalCom in partnership with neighbor-owned Noble Intent Studio is proud to deliver the NEW Talmadge.org Website! Take the website for a spin and enjoy Talmadge.org’s creative new design, upgraded technology, and user-friendly navigation.

So what Talmadge stories will this new website tell over the next 5 years? Surely the website will be boasting many exciting improvements, beginning with the restoration of our historic Talmadge Gates!
