Connecting with Neighbors and ONE-PS
Approximately half of the neighborhoods have either websites, Facebook Pages or Groups or Newsletters. These are great ways to connect to your members. For those neighborhoods which do not have them yet, here are some ways to create a source of communication.
Nextdoor is the private social network for your neighborhood.
Nextdoor is the best way to stay in the know about what’s going on in your neighborhood—whether it’s finding a last-minute babysitter, learning about an upcoming block party, or hearing about a rash of car break-ins. There are so many ways our neighbors can help us, we just need an easier way to connect with them.
