City of Cupertino Neighborhood Watch and Nextdoor

NextdoorCity of Cupertino has partnered with Nextdoor, the first private social network for neighborhoods to h
elp foster neighbor-to-neighbor communications.

What is Nextdoor?
Nextdoor is free for residents and for the City. Each neighborhood creates its own private Nextdoor website, accessible only to residents of that neighborhood. Cupertino residents can use Nextdoor to get to know their neighbors, ask questions, and exchange local advice and recommendations. Neighbors who use Nextdoor share information about neighborhood watch issues, local events, school activities, plumber and babysitter recommendations, upcoming garage sales or even lost pets. We believe a healthier and more engaged city creates stronger communities and Nextdoor can help to do just that. 

How does Nextdoor work?
Nextdoor was specifically designed to make neighbors feel comfortable sharing information with one another in order to help build stronger communities. Neighborhoods establish and self-manage their own Nextdoor website. Information shared on each Nextdoor site is only visible to members who live in the neighborhood and who have verified their address. 
 
Will my information will be shared?
Information shared on Nextdoor is password protected and cannot be accessed by those outside the neighborhood or found on Google or other search engines. In addition, Nextdoor never shares personal information with any third parties. Unlike an email listserv or other online group, neighbor posts are organized and archived for future reference.

How do I sign up?
Those interested in joining their neighborhood’s Nextdoor website can visit Nextdoor and enter their home address. If Nextdoor is already launched in your area you can immediately sign up. If a Nextdoor website has not yet been established for your area we encourage you to become the lead for your neighborhood and get started today.
