Did you ever want to start a local forum for your hometown; a place where locals could find out news of upcoming town events and share views on the community?
There is nothing in this town so for me it would not even be worth it.

I think that if you live in a popular place or if there is something to do, then more power to you and you should. I think that they are neat.
If you can add something new to your hometown forum, then do so. There's no reason not to start a hometown forum, but maybe you could ensure it has a unique twist that other local forums in your area don't. For instance, maybe a forum for just new moms or for local business professionals.
I was born and raised in the city so I have no hometown to speak of. But one cousin who grew up in the province and now residing abroad have created a forum for her townmates. Unfortunately, I cannot join because the forum is in their dialect (Kapampangan) which is alien to me. She said that majority of the members are residing abroad who are mostly homesick. By the way, the forum was started with the help of my cousin's grade school classmates.
I have never thought about creating a local hometown forum. However, I find this idea very interesting. I can create a local forum, invite the locals to join, have a discussion on local topics. If I have a lot of members, I might even attract local advertisers.
I have created a website that I intend to cater to the locals by publishing local issues and news, however, I am yet to launch it officially.
