City of Marble Falls Launches Nextdoor, the Private Social Network for Neighborhoods

The City of Marble Falls is pleased to announce that we will be using Nextdoor (www.Nextdoor.com), the private social network for neighborhoods, to foster neighbor-to-neighbor and citywide communication.  Starting now, Marble Falls’ residents can use Nextdoor to create private websites for their neighborhoods where they can get to know their neighbors, ask questions, and exchange local advice and recommendations.  For example, neighbors use Nextdoor to share information about neighborhood watch and safety issues, local events, school activities, upcoming garage sales, lost pets, and much more.


Nextdoor is free for the residents of the City.  Nextdoor was specifically designed to make neighbors feel comfortable sharing information with one another to help build stronger communities.  All members must verify that they live within the neighborhood.  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 groups, neighbor posts are organized and archived for future reference.


“We believe a healthier and more engaged city creates stronger communities,” said Mayor John Packer.  “Nextdoor will help create a stronger and safer community that we all call home.”


Neighborhoods establish and self-manage their own Nextdoor website.  Information shared on Nextdoor is only visible to verified members.  The City of Marble Falls will be able to post important information, such as crime and safety updates or local events, to Nextdoor sites within the City.  The City will not be able to access the residents’ websites, contact information, or content.


The City of Marble Falls has been mapped into three different neighborhoods (Marble Falls General, Claremont and Mormon Mill Road).  Those interested in joining their neighborhood’s Nextdoor website can visit www.nextdoor.com and enter their address.  It Nextdoor is available in their area, they can immediately sign up.  If a Nextdoor website has not yet been established for their area, active and engaged neighbors are invited to apply to bring Nextdoor to their neighborhood.  If you have questions about your Nextdoor website you can contact Christina McDonald, City Secretary/Public Information Officer at 830/798-7060 or cmcdonald@marblefallstx.gov.
