The BMHA Perry Choice Neighborhood planning initiative launched its new website www.bmhapcn.com with 360 Professional Services Group.

The BMHA Perry Choice Neighborhood (PCN) planning initiative is a collaborative effort led by the Buffalo Municipal Housing Authority (BMHA) and the University at Buffalo Center for Urban Studies.

According to the site, "the goal of the initiative is to develop a plan for transforming the Perry Choice Neighborhood into a vibrant community of opportunity, which functions as a platform or springboard that enables residents to earn a living wage and that helps children do well in school, graduate on time, and go on to college and/or obtain a job with a meaningful career ladder."

In need of a website that would help engage the community, the graphic designers at 360 PSG delivered a custom design that includes integrated social media feeds for both Facebook and Twitter.

With the Fission Content Management System (CMS), the PCN planning initiative has the ability to create, edit, and update an unlimited number of content pages from any computer with internet access at any time.

Because the PCN planning initiative's new website operates on the Fission Web System, the organization will also have access to built-in search engine optimization tools that have the potential to increase search engine ranking and improve visibility online.

The Buffalo Municipal Housing Authority Perry Choice Neighborhood planning initiative's site is hosted on 360 PSG's secure servers at their business class datacenter in downtown Buffalo, NY.
