4) www.porterslake.com -Porters Lake has become one of the fastest growing communities in the HRM and this website was created to provide information to those looking at moving to the area, for those working here to have a place on the web that they can advertise on, or to give those living here a chance to see what is happening in their community. Since starting the site in 2001 we have received over 200,000 hits and have redesigned the site to be more user friendly with a page where residents can post their own buy & sell ads or community events. We welcome pictures and local news and be sure to e-mail us with any questions or suggestions.http://www.porterslake.com/community.html
