Palo Alto to Reach Out to Neighborhoods via Nextdoor
Palo Alto is known as a community of neighborhoods with informed and involved citizens who care deeply about their neighborhoods and town. Starting on Oct. 17 at 5 p.m., the City will join more than 4,300 community members already using the Nextdoor platform as a way to reach out to neighborhoods. Nextdoor (www.nextdoor.com), is a social network for neighborhoods that fosters neighbor-to-neighbor and citywide communication.
Community members can use Nextdoor to create private websites for their neighborhoods where they can get to know their neighbors, ask questions and exchange local advice and recommendations. For example, neighbors use Nextdoor to share information about neighborhood watch and safety issues, local events, school activities, upcoming garage sales, lost pets and more.
