The Missourian will publish on Sunday a special section that tracks, in stories photos and graphics, the changes to our fair city over the past decade. It’s an ambitious project that has taken more than two months to produce.
You, dear member, can read most of the “Years of Progress” edition today.
Membership has advantages. In this case, you get a sneak preview.
In an overview article, reporter Madeline O’Leary notes that the city’s growth has stretched services and that “the demand for some accommodations has outpaced supply.” Other articles describe the bounce back of home construction; the biggest pockets of growth; the problems and promises of MU’s huge enrollment growth, and the technology revolution at area hospitals.
Click on the “Members” tab at the top of the columbiamissourian.com home page and you’ll find these stories and more.
The Members Only section highlights enterprise stories, photos, videos and graphics that you might have missed. Some of the “Editors’ Picks” are stories that ran recently. The “Special projects & e-books” column highlights enterprise work that’s less time sensitive and that took extra effort to produce. The list includes e-books; in the past two months, the Missourian has produced five.
Now, most articles are free to everyone for the first 24 hours, and that system will continue. Soon, though, you’ll be able to read extra stories and opinion pieces available only to members.
The Missourian advertising department is working on other incentives for members. Stay tuned.
