This morning, Lewis Reed, St. Louis President of the Board of Aldermen, Deputy Chief Paul Nocchiero, and our Co-Founder Sarah Leary, officially announced that the City of St. Louis will be using Nextdoor. This partnership will improve engagement with residents among a variety of city departments including the Board of Aldermen, the Police Department, the Emergency Management Agency and the Neighborhood Stabilization Team.
Already 75% of neighborhoods in the City of St. Louis have started Nextdoor websites to stay connected and updated on the things that matter. This includes neighborhoods like Clifton Heights, which is a St. Louis neighborhood that has been using Nextdoor since November 2012 and was also the location of today’s press conference.

The City of St. Louis will be able to post important news, services, programs, free events, and emergency notifications to the neighborhoods’ Nextdoor websites.
President Reed shared his excitement about the partnership in his tweet this morning, saying:
St. Louis joins more than 120 cities across the country that are utilizing Nextdoor to encourage both residents and city departments to use technology to create safer, more well-connected communities.
