Announcement from the City of Riverside:
The City of Riverside announced today that Nextdoor.com is now available for free to Riverside residents. Nextdoor.com is the first private social network for neighborhoods, to foster neighbor-to-neighbor and citywide communication.
“Great cities are made up of great neighborhoods and Nextdoor is a tool which will allow our residents to builder stronger relationships and, in turn, stronger neighborhoods,” Mayor Ron Loveridge said.
Riverside residents can use Nextdoor.com to create private websites for their neighborhoods where they can get to know their neighbors, ask questions, and exchange local advice and recommendations. Topics of discussion on Nextdoor.com can be as varied as local events, school activities, plumber and babysitter recommendations, disaster preparedness, recent crime activity, upcoming garage sales or even lost pets.
Nextdoor.com allows neighborhoods to form new bonds within their community; to harken back to the good ol’ days when neighbors actually knew one another and block parties were common.
All members of Nextdoor.com must verify that they live within the neighborhood.
Information shared on Nextdoor.com is password protected and cannot be accessed by those outside the neighborhood or found on Google or other search engines. In addition, Nextdoor.com never shares personal information with any third parties. Unlike an email listserv or other online group, neighbor posts are organized and archived for future reference.
Those interested in joining their neighborhood’s Nextdoor.com website or initiating a neighborhood group can click HERE or visit their website at www.nextdoor.com.
