I recently sent an email to the Lineberry Alliance list asking if folks would be interested in trying Next Door as a pilot to improve our community communications and as a way to get to know our neighbors better. This is a poll that my neighbors can complete to indicate if they are interested in the pilot or not:
Are neighbors interested in piloting Next Door for the Lineberry Alliance?
- Yes (85%, 11 Votes)
- No (8%, 1 Votes)
- (8%, 1 Votes)
Total Voters: 13
I saw a presentation about Next Door at the Code for America conference this week and the tool looks like an amazing replacement for Google Groups like ours. Next Door has over three years of experience and it’s a valuable tool that can really help build community and get us to know each other as neighbors better.
What I learned: 28% of Americans know none of their neighbors by name.
Here is some information about another Raleigh neighborhood using Next Door that increased participation from 400 Google Group members to over 1,000 Next Door users.
Please contact me if anyone in the neighborhood would be willing to be a co-admin for a potential Next Door pilot and then if it succeeds, continue on as an admin.
