When neighbors start talking, good things happen! That’s the thinking behind a new tool for sparking neighborhood-level conversations called Nextdoor. Nextdoor ’neighborhood websites’ have been established in nearly every St. Louis city neighborhood and our office has been growing resident enrollment week after week. To date over 70 neighborhoods and 6,500 residents have signed on.
The City of St Louis is excited to work with Nextdoor programmers to build one of the strongest social networks of neighbors in the country! On October 16th President Reed joined neighbors from across the city in welcoming Nextdoor co-founder Sarah Leary to St. Louis to announce the launch of the City of St. Louis partnership, linking City Hall and SLMPD with neighborhoods through the Nextdoor platform. The goal is to keep residents informed, prepared and connected.
