Good morning Washington.
DCRTV hears that the Vienna-based Backfence.com series of community websites will be shutting down due to financial difficulties. All of the local sites now feature a message like this: “We are sorry to announce that Backfence Reston will be ceasing operations within the next few days. We have been honored to have been members of this vibrant local community over the past several months. Thank you for your interest and participation in Backfence. Hopefully, we’ll see you around the neighborhood.” Backfence also features sites for Arlington, Bethesda, Chantilly, McLean, and Sterling, as well as locales in California and Illinois. More soon…..
