 Social Network ‘Nextdoor’

The City is working to improve and expand its communication efforts with residents throughout Arlington by joining the private social network of Nextdoor.

Nextdoor is a private social network for you, your neighbors and your community and its mission is to use the power of technology to build stronger and safer neighborhoods.

The City of Arlington plans to share important news and emergency notifications that are relevant to your specific neighborhood, along with stories that would be beneficial for all Arlington residents.

Our staff will not be able to see any of the content on your neighborhood website except for the direct replies to our posts.

In addition to the City' s Office of Communications, Arlington Parks and Recreation will also be joining Nextdoor under the same account to offer information on upcoming events and programs they have available to our residents.

Arlington Police Department, Arlington Public Library and the City' s Garbage and Recycling are already members of Nextdoor.

You can learn more about the social network and how you can sign-up as a member of your Arlington neighborhood by visiting the Nextdoor website.
