Happening This Weekend - 4/19/2019

Beaconites are sending in their favorite views of Beacon! And what a perfect weekend for it (well... before any rain comes in!). As the City Council focuses on "viewsheds" - how and where they want to protect views as different projects are built - A Little Beacon Blog wants to know what your favorite views are, and why. See our article that has a few pictures from readers like you right now. Whether you're a resident or visitor - send us what catches your eye. Pictures can be of nature or of a building or of a combo. Details on how to submit are in this article.
