LB Councilwoman Schipske Introduces Neighborhood Website

District 5 Councilwoman Gerrie Schiepske recently announced the availability of Nextdoor, a secure social network for neighborhoods to foster neighbor-to-neighbor and citywide communication. Residents within District 5 can use Nextdoor to create websites for their specific neighborhoods. Enrollment enables individual residents to form relationships with their neighbors by asking questions and exchanging local advice and recommendations. Topics of discussion on Nextdoor are as varied as local events, school activities, babysitter recommendations, plumbing advice, disaster preparedness, recent crime activity, upcoming garage sales, or even lost pets.

Nextdoor has specific features which enable neighbors to communicate information with one another. All members must verify their address within the neighborhood. Information shared on Nextdoor is password-protected and cannot be accessed by those outside the neighborhood. Information entered will not show up on Google or any other search engine. In addition, Nextdoor never shares personal information with any third party. Unlike an email listserv or other online group, neighbor posts are organized and archived for future reference.

Any District 5 resident interested in joining their Nextdoor’s neighborhood website can visit and enter their address. You don’t have to be an organized neighborhood to set up a neighborhood website on Nextdoor.
If Nextdoor is available in a specific area of the Fifth Council District, you can immediately sign up. If a Nextdoor website has not yet been established for their area, active and engaged neighbors are invited to apply to bring Nextdoor to their neighborhood.
