Cape Coral has partnered with Nextdoor (nextdoor.com), the private social network for neighborhoods, to engage with residents on a hyper-local level and to expand city communications. This partnership enables the City to use Nextdoor to build stronger and better-informed neighborhoods with the help of Cape Coral residents. The City joins 2,400 other public agencies across the country that are using Nextdoor for Public Agencies to build stronger relationships with residents.
“Nextdoor is another tool we can use to help us better communicate and reach our residents,” said Public Affairs Manager Connie Barron. “We encourage our residents to join us on Nextdoor so we can work together to strengthen community engagement.”
Currently, more than 13,000 Cape Coral residents are Nextdoor members. Nextdoor allows members to receive messages directly from the City of Cape Coral via an email address, mobile app or Nextdoor.com. Messages can be sent to all Cape Coral neighborhoods, or messages can geographically target specific neighborhoods. Nextdoor is free for residents and government organizations. Each Cape Coral neighborhood has its own private Nextdoor neighborhood website, which is only accessible to residents of that neighborhood. The City of Cape Coral cannot access neighborhood websites, contact information or content. All members must verify they live within a specific neighborhood before joining.
Anyone interested in joining their neighborhood’s Nextdoor website can visit nextdoor.com and enter their street address.
