City partners with Nextdoor, the private social network for neighborhoods

The City of Minneapolis is partnering with Nextdoor, the private social network for neighborhoods, to improve citywide and neighbor-to-neighbor communications. The social network will allow city departments to communicate directly with residents citywide or in specific neighborhoods.

Similar to the process for the City’s other social media platforms, departments should contact Matt Lindstrom in Communications about sharing information on Nextdoor.

With Nextdoor, Minneapolis residents can create private neighborhood websites to share information, including neighborhood public safety issues, community events and activities, local services, and even lost pets. Most Minneapolis neighborhoods use it, with 95 percent of city neighborhoods currently registered on the site. The City will be able to post information, such as important news, services, programs, free events and safety notifications to Nextdoor websites within the city.

Nextdoor is a free tool for residents and the City. Each Minneapolis neighborhood has its own private Nextdoor neighborhood website, accessible only to residents of that neighborhood. Neighborhoods establish and self-manage their own Nextdoor website. The City will not be able to access residents’ contact information or content. All members must verify that they live within the neighborhood before joining Nextdoor. Information shared on Nextdoor is password protected and cannot be accessed by Google or other search engines.

Those interested in joining their neighborhood’s Nextdoor website can visit and enter their address.
