The mission of Community Impact Newspaper is to build communities of informed citizens and thriving businesses through the collaboration of a passionate team. Owners John and Jennifer Garrett launched the first edition of Community Impact Newspaper in 2005 with three full-time employees covering Round Rock and Pflugerville. Now, Community Impact Newspaper distributes hyperlocal news and information to millions of local residents and business owners each day online and monthly by mail. The McKinney edition is directly mailed via USPS to 100% of residential mailboxes in the city. Online readers can access local stories daily by visiting www.communityimpact.com.
Community Impact Newspaper is vested in the communities we serve and has dedicated reporters in each community who attend city council and school board meetings. We are among the first to report on local business, transportation, education and health care. Our staff serve on chamber boards, volunteer with nonprofits and are involved in our communities to make them a better place to live and work.
