The Corktown News — formerly the Corktowner — is the CRBA’s seasonal newsletter highlighting the latest news, events, and stories from the community. It is published quarterly and distributed to all homes and businesses within the Corktown area. This area spans from the DVP on the east, to Berkeley Street on the west; and from the south side of Shuter Street down to Front Street. Distribution is approximately 7,000 – and growing quickly – as more new residents and businesses are drawn to this vital and quickly-expanding area of downtown.

The newsletter is written through submissions from local residents and businesses which are assembled and designed by local resident James Caldwell.

Residents and business owners are encouraged to submit articles of interest for publication in the newsletter. Submit your articles for the Corktown News to All submissions may be subject to editing.
